It’s is archaic to wish you rough weather but that only makes cruising in Glacier Bay even more exciting, and when added to the crashing of the icebergs as they free themselves from the retreating glaciers then float - often in your course - then it's one hellava trip.

Wildlife, including whales and seals in the water and bears and caribou on land, top of the appeal if the dramatic glacial scenery backed by mountains.  

This is becoming one of the most popular cruise options for a reason - it's really something special, whether you join a larger mega-cruiser or a small boat, or even charter your own.
