One of the highlights of the cruise for the grownups was seeing Tracy Arm, Alaska, and the gorgeous glacier tucked in that area. We took hours to move slowly through the narrow passage, and seeing the first iceberg chunks in the water was so exciting. As we got closer, their number increased until we were in full sight of the glacier. Spectacular.
The captain of our ship, Captain Fabian, was so incredibly personable, and we were told that he always lowers a metal basket over the side of the ship to 'catch' a piece of ice so the kids can have a first-hand view of a piece of a glacier. Checking out the frozen air bubbles was so cool.
I still miss Alaska and its beauty.
