Cruise to Alaska -- how important is Glacier Bay?

Jump to last reply

We are hoping to take our first cruise, roundtrip from Seattle, to Alaska. We love the outdoors and are hoping to take full advantage of nature-oriented excursions during our stops in port. Most of the boats do not visit Glacier Bay (although I recognize that we only sail through and won't be getting off the ship). Wondering whether experienced Alaska visitors would consider Glacier Bay a "must see". Or would a boat that goes through
Tracey Arm or the inside passage be sufficient? Please weigh in. Thanks.
