I was in Glacier Bay on 7/11 and it was gone. I think it must have just got stuck initially and then when the tide went out you know the rest, but it must have been able to continue on its own. No one up there was making a big stink about it. The tidal change up there is in the 25 foot range.

Formerly, the Spirit of Nantucket, the Spirit of Glacier Bay is one of the newest additions to Cruise West's fleet. In 2008, it will operate exclusively in Alaska on our 3- and 4-night Glacier Bay Highlights and sandbar cruises.

The decor is sleek, stylish, and quietly elegant with light wood accents. The Observation Lounge features expansive picture windows, a lending library, plus cozy banquettes and conversation circles for getting to know your fellow travelers.

Every stateroom features a wide picture window or porthole, private facilities, a writing desk and ample storage. And when it's time to go outside, guests enjoy generous outside space on the bow and aft decks. Lowest level cabins feature walk-out patios and direct access to the beach.
Unlike many cruises, our Spirit of Glacier Bay is ideal for guests who have experienced vertigo on past cruises.

I would ask for a refund of my cruise package. My reasoning would be that the 'clueless are in charge again'
