We visited the Hubbard Glacier by cruise ship and were amazed, the glacier is truly beautiful, powerful, and an experience to see. The thundering sound that echoes as a piece breaks away and crumbles into the water reminds you of the massive size and brilliance...More
Cracks of thundering ice. Calves the size of office blocks - this is nature on an impressive scale. The Star Princess gets you up close and personal, but have your recording device ready (on zoom and focussed on the target), as the action happens quickly...More
Viewable by cruise ship. Worth booking a cruise that includes Hubbard Glacier. Spectacular views of the glacier which is about 7 miles wide where it touches the water. We got within about 1 mile of the glacier and were able to see it calving. Great...More
We were onboard the Celebrity Millennium on an Inside Passage cruise. This cruise experience was sensational, but the highlight was being one mile from this awesome sight, doing donuts so every passenger from every point on this beautiful ship could take in the majestic beauty...More
Definitely put this on your bucket list. I was speechless at the sounds of the ice popping and creaking. The white thunder as the natives call it is spectacular. It was foggy and grainy but it didn’t take away from the experience. Saw the glacier...More

This was a stop on a BEAUTIFUL sunny day in alaska...I know right! It was incredible. I could have stared at the wall of ice for hours which is saying something. It was sad there wasnt much for ice in the ice field in the...More
We visited the Hubbard Glacier as part of a cruise we took on Celebrity. We loved the cruise but that is the subject of another review. It was cold and damp and misty and Alaska … what did you expect, sunshine and palm trees?

We were on the Star Princess. Princess ships have areas set aside for teens with activities for them. However, I cannot judge the quality of these programs as we did little more than stick our head in the door to see what was there. The Princess Cruise website has additional information about their teen oriented programs.
