We did alaska 2 summers ago on Princess. We did the tracy arm itinerary. I want to go back for another alaska cruise, to see glaciers calving. RCCL only goes to Hubbard glacier, and princess goes to glacier bay. What are your thoughts, as to which is better/prettier, more iceberg calving? We don't care which cruise line we go with, either one is fine. Any thoughts appreciated. Lil' Lori
We just did the Zaandam HAL, it does Glacier Bay and Tracy Arm. It runs out of Vancouver. We enjoyed the ship, and the entertainment, not the service personel or the food.
You can check my prior post for more information.
BTW we did the Sun Princess out of Seattle, it does the Tracy Arm thing. Thought the food was better, had better food, but the Zaandam is a better ship.
Lil' Lori I felt we saw quiet a few, maybe a dozen. I could never get a picture of them falling, but they were. We really enjoyed the trip.
With that said we plan on doing Hubbard Glacier next year.
I am working on my cruise photos and will post more later.
Have you cruised HAL before? We just got an email offer. !2 days Inside Cabin, Inside passage from Vancouver ending in San Diego I think. $899.00 pp. Here is the link
We were at Hubbard Glacier several days ago, and also saw a lot of calving. We were able to get quite close to the glacier, too. We were told by staff that that was the closest the ship had been all season. The previous week it was too foggy to go close or to see anything from the ship. We were lucky.
