The evening ahead of this extraordinary excursion, the ship’s captain explained that the climate would determine no matter whether we headed up Endicott Arm to see the Dawes Glacier or if we’d go up Tracy Arm to see the South Sawyer Glacier.

As it turned out, we did end up in Tracy Arm, but we obtained to see the South Stewart Glacier!

For the tour, you board a tender boat straight from the Disney Wonder, which then takes you significantly closer to the glacier than the ship is able of getting. The ramp can be at a pretty respectable angle, but the floor is not slippery and as long as you cling onto the rails on both sides, you need to be alright.

The tender boat has 3 degrees and there was even a cafe inside of with all kinds of treats and drinks available for obtain. In addition, the tender boat’s crew grabbed a major chunk of the glacier and made “glacier-ritas” – an adult beverage that could be acquired for $8. The relaxation of the glacier piece that did not get utilised to make grownup beverages was introduced again on to the Disney Surprise the place it was displayed on the best deck for guests to see.
