Seeing this for the past three years is amazing. Every single trip is a different experience. You're lucky if the Captain makes sure you come close. Sometimes its rainy or cloudy but on some days, the day is so clear you could see the mountains...More

The glacier was beautiful, colorful and calving regularly. You can see the chunks falling off without binoculars, but it is far more spectacular with them.

Visited Hubbard Glacier as a stop on a cruise ship, where we could see it for a couple hours off the balcony in our stateroom. The immense size of the glacier is difficult to see from photographs...it was several times the height of our cruise...More

This was an amazing experience. The cruise ship went quite close to the majestic glacier and stayed there for a good couple of hours - sufficient to enjoy and absorb the experience. Though the decks were crowded, we got excellent views of the glacier, especially...More

Hubbard Glacier was the highlight of our 10 day cruise with Celebrity Millennium up the inside passage. The sound of the glacier breaking is rather surprising and heartbreaking as well. Alaska is just beautiful, each snow capped mountain is breathtaking in itself. A must see!

The Captain got us up close to the Glacier. I was amazed at the sounds coming from the Glacier, the sight was incredible, but the sounds were a surprise to me.

We visited as part of our Celebrity cruise. As we approached the glacier the number of ice floes increased. They looked quite small from a distance, but they weren’t. Several had small groups of seals sitting on them, watching us pass by! We were so...More

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

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... More

If you you're taking a cruise you don't actually get off the ship, the ship just gets close to the glacier.
