Yesterday, the Disney Wonder visited the Hubbard Glacier for the first time ever as part of a special 9-night Alaskan itinerary out of Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Hubbard Glacier is one of few glaciers that is still advancing because the origin point of the glacier receives snow almost year-round. The glacier is over 75 miles long, 7 feet wide and 300-400 feet tall on its face.
The special itinerary also made a stop at Icy Strait Point near Hoonah, Alaska, which boasts the world’s tallest and longest ZipRider. The ZipRider allows riders to remain in a seated position while traveling on over a mile of cable from 1,300 feet up down to near sea-level.
The Disney Wonder will return to Hubbard Glacier and Icy Strait Point on another 9-night sailing September 9, 2018, additionally the Disney Wonder will also visit Icy Strait Point on July 25, 2018 and September 3, 2018 for 7-night sailings.
