. From the Island Princess’ navigator:
During the early morning, Island Princess will pass through Cape Hinchinbrook (waypoint 16) into Prince William Sound. For full details of wildlife in the Sound, consult your Cruise Companion (Chapter 6.).
Island Princess will sail into College Fjord in the late afternoon and the glaciers will be in view on both sides of the ship.
Tuesday 17th July 2018
When we woke the sea was calm and we could see reflections of the clouds. This was the morning we had to pack and make sure the suitcase coming with us to Denali had all the correct clothes. Our other case would be going directly to the hotel in Anchorage. We watched another cruise shop pass by.
Morning out on deck
We had an early breakfast in the Bordeaux before we were out on our balcony looking for whales as suggested in the Princess Cruises nature guide. We passed a glacier as we sailed towards Whittier and Glacier Bay.
… and a lighthouse.
The scenery was spectacular.
There had been yet another outlet sale in the Provence restaurant that started at 10 am. We gave this one a miss as we wanted to be out on deck.
