New Alaska itinerary: Icy Strait Point and Hubbard Glacier
For the first time, Disney Cruise Line will take guests to Alaska’s Icy Strait Point and Hubbard Glacier as part of a new nine-night itinerary on the Disney Wonder. Departing from Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 24, 2017, this itinerary also sails to Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Tracy Arm Fjord.
Icy Strait Point offers a variety of Alaska nature adventures, including a zip line attraction that is one of the longest and highest zip lines in the world.
