Our exclusive access to Glacier Bay National Park offers unparalleled opportunities to witness the beauty of more than 1,000 magnificent glaciers surrounded by misty evergreen forests and is often the highlight of an Alaska cruise. Watch for splashing whales, soaring eagles and sunning stellar sea lions from the comfort of the Crow’s Nest. Expert Park Rangers and naturalists on board will share unique insights into this diverse ecosystem.
