Beautiful scenery and breathtaking views! We were on our cruise ship for the ride through glacier bay. The glaciers are beautiful with their multi colors. The ice flowing by the ship was quiet as it passed. Many wildlife opportunities, whales, otters, sea lions, bears, eagles.

Maybe the most beautiful place on earth. It's not easy to get to, but boy oh boy was it worth it. We went there on a cruise and were in the park for several hours. Breathtakingly gorgeous and unlike any place I've ever seen.

Wow, and then some more wow. It's a humbling experience to sail through. It's majestic, pristine, beautiful, quiet. It's easy to loose yourself and find yourself.

Holland America inside passage cruises are just fantastic. The ship takes you withing a couple hundred of yards of the glacier. Go outside and hear and feel the ice groaning and cracking.. We were there on a sunny day which the ship's crew said they...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
