Touring Glacier Bay National Park By Cruise Ship
Our Alaska cruise spent half a day cruising through Glacier Bay National Park. Even though the weather was wet and misty, we were treated to epic views of the remaining glaciers, as well as ice bergs, waterfalls, and some cute little sea otters! Park rangers came aboard to narrate and give us tons of info as we cruised from glacier to glacier, as well as to provide literature and National Park stamps to passengers who wanted it. It was a crazy early morning - we were up before dawn to get breakfast and a good spot on our favorite deck – The Wake View Bar – which is shielded from a lot of the wind when the ship is moving. But it was TOTALLY worth it. The ship – Princess Cruises Majestic Princess – had hot cocoa stations set up to keep us warm as we gazed at the coastline in the damp cold. The cocoa was watery and bland, but the heat was welcome.
Join us as we make our way around the U.S. (for now) and eventually the world, sharing the sights, flavors, and stories we come across as we go. We're Stephen & Andie – travel creators from Los Angeles, now based in North Carolina. We're excited to share our adventures with you!
