Cruising Alaska: May 2005

It was interesting to watch the captain guide the Radiance of the Seas through the ice to within half a mile (800 meters) of the face of the Hubbard Glacier, often using side-thrusters to push aside larger icebergs. The ship doesn't have the hull strength to break through pack ice, but handles this sort of condition easily.
