Hello, we were on Regal Princess, in Tracy Arm on July 14th. The Princess ship before us, and us on the Regal were able to go all the way into the arm, and obsereve the Twin Sawyer Glaciers at the end of the arm. Our cruise director said he found out that the 2 ships after us were not able to get all the way into the arm, due to fog. So, I guess it is hit or miss with Tracy Arm. My friend also went to Tracy Arm during the second week of May, and she said they could not get in there all the way due to icebergs. Tracy Arm is very narrow in some places. Some of the icebergs were quite large, for such a narrow fjord. I wonder if Glacier Bay would be a "safer destination" as far as guaranteeing to see it vs. Tracy Arm. Does anyone have any thoughts on this. Lil' Lori

Lori, Thanks for posting while cruising. Glad you got to enjoy Tracey Arm. I was one who did not get to see if fully due to dense fog & rain. Enjoy the rest of your cruise

Tracey arm is awesome, but then all the glaciers in Alaska rate that rank. I am glad you got in and got to experience it. Was there much calving?

I only heard of 1 episode of iceberg calving, unfortunately I did not see it. My husband saw and heard it, he was on a different part of the boat taking pictures.
