Glacier in Glacier Bay National Park
Glacier in the College Fiords

Royal Princess was chosen because it left from Vancouver, its ports of call and cruising through Glacier Bay National Park and the College Fiord. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. We loved our standard balcony room. We used the balcony every day!! Had fun during the day with trivia. Danced more than we every had with great musicians. Wished there had been more musical programs than were offered. Anytime dining was a great way to meet different people during dinner. We became friends with 2 sisters from the first night. Liked how we could choose what time to eat dinner. The ship held around 4000 people but it never really felt crowded. Enjoyed the ice cream on deck 16!! Skagway was our favorite port of call. They know how to take care of visitors with their shuttle service, signs and friendliness. The whole trip made me want to do this cruise again.

Glacier Bay

There was no disembarking for Glacier Bay. The ship took us to 2 different glaciers and gave ample time for both sides of the ship to see the glaciers. We had a beautiful day to see the wonders of this park from the ship.
