We sailed on the Holland America Oosterdam. Had no idea how beautiful this would be. The sounds from the glacier were bone rattling. With occasional shows of ice breaking off and falling into the water. Must See!!!

It took my breath away to see and hear these wonderful glaciers in all their glory. I couldn't believe the sounds they make as they crack. Our ship cruised this area on a cold, rainy and foggy day in August but we still had great...More

As the Holland America shop Noordam entered Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve, a launch carrying National Park Service rangers came out to meet up with our ship about 6:30 AM. I watched the process from our verandah. The rangers were onboard all day. The...More

I don't think you can really go wrong in Glacier Bay. I suppose bow heading in so you can see the glaciers as you head towards them. Port vs. starboard would depend the route your ship is taking. We loved taking wildlife... More
