Princess offers an amazing 6 hour excursion in Tracy Arm where you can take a catamaran to Sawyer Glacier, offering a close up and personal view of whales, icebergs and very close views of glaciers.
You then meet your ship in Juneau. Apparently, this experience makes Glacier Bay seem like nothing special. Click here to see a preview of what you’ll experience.
