Hubbard glacier wilderness exploration excursion????

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has done this excursion. Is it worth doing or is staying on the cruise ship good enough?

Haven't done it just yet, but booked it today for our cruise August 2019. Celebrity has a 5-day flash sale going on (starting today), and it saved us $250 for our party of 5.

 

For what it's worth, we did a small boat excursion off HAL's Zuiderdam in Tracy Arm Fjord quite a few years ago, and getting up close and personal with Sawyer(?) Glacier was probably the highlight of our trip.

 

Good luck with your choice!

Can someone define "up close and personal". On the Millennium in 2016 we were within one half mile, the legal limit for a cruise ship and it was pretty awesome. We are planning on going back in 2020 and wondering how much closer we can get.

This is a new excursion -- check on the Alaska port board -- I believe there have been some problem with the excursion. Maybe things are better now????
