I’m just going to let the photos speak for themselves. This was incredible. I was on deck for hours, just staring at the landscape. Absolutely breathtaking.
When we came out of the sound into open water, it was no less spectacular. For miles all around was a massive ice field. According to the ships TV channel, we were moving at 4kts. Slowly we approached the first large iceberg and as we hit it, it made a sound like a huge bell being struck. The whole ship shuttered and the 300+ people out on the various decks collectively went, “Woah!”. After that, the ship slowed to 2kts. It took most of the day to get through the icefield, gently nudging the icebergs out of the way.
