Disney Wonder Cruises Through Tracy Arm Fjord During Inaugural Alaskan Voyage

posted on May 6th, 2011 by Jason Lasecki, Public Relations Director, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures By Disney, Disney Vacation Club

Yesterday, I saw one of the most breathtaking sights I’ve ever witnessed as the Disney Wonder sailed past glaciers at the Tracy Arm Fjord during her first-ever Alaskan voyage. Nestled between 3,000-foot high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles. We captured a photo so you can also enjoy the incredibly beautiful view. We hope you’re able to see it in person someday, too!

During our seven-night Alaskan itineraries this summer, Disney Cruise Line also visits Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway where guests can enjoy the splendor, history and adventure that the amazing state of Alaska has to offer.

After seeing this sampling of spectacular scenery, is visiting Alaska aboard a Disney cruise on your to-do list?

That last photo is great. Is a higher resolution available? I’d love to make it my wallpaper.

I will be setting sail through Alaska in September 2012

Thank you. Can’t wait until next week. On the 5/10/11 cruise with family.

Nice, but no comparison to Glacier Bay. We are on the August 16 Disney Alaska cruise because it is DCL, not because it is the best itinerary out there. I’m hoping not to be too disappointed with Tracy Arm Fjord.

I can’t wait. We will be there in July. I have seen Glacier Bay too and I think any new Alaska scenery is so exciting.

These photos are great. Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait for our August 16th sailing!

I am so looking forward to going on the Alaskan Cruise in late August. We have been waiting for this for awhile. Alot of my friends are so excited that Disney will be going out of Galveston soon and looking forward to their first Disney Cruise.

Beautiful photos. I have sailed to Alaska before, but hope to sail there with Disney someday =D

The pictures are amazing, as was watching the helicopter take them as they flew around the ship. However, the pictures are just a taste of the experience. Truly a magical cruise. Thanks to Disney and all of your wonderful Cast Members on the Wonder!


Jeffrey from WI on May 11th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

I leave on the 24th. Awesome photos, cannot wait.


Cvetka on May 12th, 2011 at 5:52 pm

I was on the trip and it was absolutely beautiful. The crew was also so wonderful. I didn’t want the trip to end.


valerie on May 13th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

My DH, DD (3 yrs) & I are going on July 12th. We can’t wait! Thank you for the pictures :)


Pam from MD on May 15th, 2011 at 11:12 pm

We were on the Wonder for this trip through Tracy Arm and it was absolutely amazing. My parents had been to Glacier Bay previously and said that they enjoyed Tracy Arm more – it was more intimate.
