Touring a glacier via ship #Alaska

We were given a heads up the night before that we would be travelling up one of the fjords and viewing a glacier from the ship.  I was up by 5a (Alaska time) to watch the ship travel up the fjord and to the glacier.  We didn't go to Tracy Arm as planned due to fog and ice.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of this one.  The funny t hing was listening to the captain as we got there.  He did "donuts" so that everyone on all sides of the ship had a good view of the glacier.  The tracks are NOT by vehicle, but by debris picked up by the glacier as it moved.  It just made track like stripes in the glacier as it moved.
