Default Which Alaska itinerary would you choose?

Looking at next summer for Alaska, finally got a friend to 'consider' Alaska.

If you had two north / south bound itineraries to choose from, both virtually the same except that one visits Glacier while the other substitutes Hubbard Glacier, which one would you choose?

Been to both and this is a hard decision. Which would be the 'best' for someone who will go only once?

IMHO Glacier bay is superior to Hubbard......although.......the Hubbard glacier itself is larger and more awe inspiring than the glaciers in Glacier bay. Glacier bay, entering and exiting included, is more scenic as a whole however.

I too prefer Glacier Bay, I'll assume both have College Fjords? The selling point for me however would be in preference of Seward rather than Whittier, such excellent touring to consider. Any cruise is a compromise.

Are you aware that with Princess cruises, that you can go either northbound or southbaound out of Vancouver (or Whittier) and still have the Glacier Bay scenic cruising day??

I am going on my first cruise next month (june 26) northbound with Glacier Bay included, with Skagway, juneau, Ketchikan, and college fjord cruisng included. We could have had same itinerary for southbound cruise as well!

worth checking out. I have heard that Glacier Bay was best for a first time cruise, so that is what we went for. I think if we go again, perhaps we will take another route for the fun of it and to see other things as well.

Have fun...
