We did an Alaska cruise on Holland America and one of the sights was the Hubbard Glacier. We had the blessing of a sunny, calm day and could even hear the glacier calving. It was pretty awesome.

There aren't enough words to describe the experience felt while watching, admiring, photographing and wishing to record every detail in my mind. And the most amazing thing was hearing the thunder and seeing the ice blocks falling into the frigid waters of the Pacific Ocean,...More

The Hubbard Glacier is the biggest Alaskan glacier visited by cruise ships. With a 6-mile wide, 400-foot tall face, the blue ice seems to envelop your ship when you get up close. We got to experience the 'white thunder' and calving of icebergs which is...More

We were so blessed on our NCL cruise that we had a kamikaze captain who got so close to the glacier we could almost touch it! This super blue ice carving behemoth was beautiful. Even the usually jaded crew were running around the ship yelling...More
