I have been to both numerous times. I would have to give Glacier Bay a "thumbs up" for diversity and potential wildlife sightings, but give Hubbard Glacier a "thumbs up" for intensity and overall presence.

You can't go wrong no matter which you select.

Have a great cruise!

thanks! could you elaborate a little more? is hubbard intense because it's so large - and would you get to see wildlife? is glacier more diverse in landscape?

Hubbard Glacier is quite large and actively calving. The entrance to the glacier is wonderful and the noise when she calves is captivating. You will need an excellent pair of binaculars to spot much game, but you will see some during the cruise.

Glacier Bay is also awesome but lacks the intenisty that Hubbard has, in my opinion.

Have a great cruise!
