Sapphire Princess

Glacier Bay National Park

sunny 55 °F

The highlight of any Alaska Cruise is the visit to Glacier Bay. I usually push all my clients to pick a cruise which includes Glacier Bay, because you haven't seen the full Alaska unless you have seen this remarkable National Park - highlighted today, because the weather was perfect and it was Independence Day. You couldn't ask for anything better. Princess boards a Park Ranger at about 0745 to narrate the trip. Our's was in her third season - a glacial geologist from Wisconsin. She was obviously passionate about her "job" given the emotion and feeling that she placed in her discussion. We debarked her at 1500 this afternoon, and headed to sea for the 500 mile trip to College Fjord.
