Default northbound, southbound or glacier bay?

I have been on glacier bay - and loved it. Debating on doing the same or something different. What is everyone's opinions?

Every visit to Glacier Bay is different, but there are many other places to see. I prefer Hubbard Glacier, for example, because it does an amazing amount of calving (but this year I went to Glacier Bay anyway).

I like the itiniary of glacer bay better (more sea days)...but still debating. Then I have to decide what month to go. Last time I went in September and this time I want to go earlier. There was not much wildlife at all to see then.

The end of July all we saw (and we were on deck watching almost the entire day) was a brown speck that somebody said was a grizzly.

Late May and June to be more specific - early May can still be too cold for cruising IMO. The earliest I'll book is about the 20th.

that sounds about right to me too - however coming from the deep south - I cherish the cold weather for short durations!

Come February I'd sure be glad to swap a week of our minus-45s for a week of your plus-80s!!

Murry -- I see your point! Except now it is 100 plus. Guess we both have our good and bad seasons, huh?
