And there is nothing quite like nudging up to a towering wall of ice known as a tidal glacier! This doesn’t mean that every cruise liner has some or all of these limitations. While we won’t say there’s a specific cut-off point, a ship that measures about 650 feet long or under can be considered to be in the “small” category. Itineraries on the cruise liners take one of two basic forms. The first is an Inside Passage trip that begins and ends in Vancouver. It hits most of the ports between Ketchikan and Skagway as well as the scenic attractions along the waterway, usually including Glacier Bay National Park.
The latter provides a centralized area off which many of the ship’s public areas are located. The Infinity is one of the first ships to feature glassenclosed elevators offering ocean or Alaskan coastal views. But perhaps what is most special about Infinity is its large and excellently designed staterooms. Even the smallest is larger than a mid-grade cabin on most ships. And what can be called the “standard” ocean-view stateroom is definitely a step up from what many cruise passengers will be used to.
Glacier Bay Tours & Cruises) PRICE RANGE: Prices begin at $2,190 for an eight-day cruise. A recent major renovation of this already nice small ship (72 passengers) has increased creature comforts in the form of new furnishings and a revamped dining room. Improved aesthetics are also in evidence. Measuring 157 feet in length, the Wilderness Adventurer is uniquely designed for the “soft” adventure travel of its name. The ship is equipped with kayaks and Zodiac craft. Its size and design allow the ship to be brought practically onto the shore so passengers can literally walk off the boat and onto land.
