The Norwegian Sun Cruises Glacier Bay


Glacier Bay

Lamplugh Glacier

Margerie Glacier is just one of the glaciers you’ll visit here in Glacier Bay, but it’s also the closest you’ll come to one.  After leaving Tarr Inlet the Norwegian Sun turned up the John Hopkins Inlet.  Along the way you’ll coast past the Lamplugh Glacier depicted above.  We didn’t get very close, but I was able to make good use of my 400mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto to capture some good shots of it.

Unfortunately you won’t get very close to John Hopkins Glacier as it’s an important wildlife area this time of the year.  Here’s a view of John Hopkins Glacier from a distance:

And, yes, you’ll still get great views from the comfort of your balcony, so going up on deck and fighting for railing space is not necessary.

This area of Glacier Bay is great for seeing the geology of the area, including some very colorful granite.  Waterfalls are also abundant here.
