College Fjord
College Fjord is a fjord located in the northern sector of Prince William Sound in the U.S. state of Alaska. The fjord contains five tidewater glaciers (glaciers that terminate in water), five large valley glaciers, and dozens of smaller glaciers, most named after renowned East Coast colleges (women's colleges for the NW side, and men's colleges for the SE side). College Fjord was discovered in 1899 during the Harriman Expedition, at which time the glaciers were named. The expedition included a Harvard and an Amherst professor, and they named many of the glaciers after elite colleges. According to Bruce Molina, author of Alaska's Glaciers, "They took great delight in ignoring Princeton."[1]
In 1964 College Fjord was the epicenter of the Good Friday Earthquake, the most powerful earthquake in U.S. history. It is a popular destination for cruise ships. From one place, it is possible to see eight of College Fjords Glaciers at once.

The first of the fjords that we visited was College Fjord. A fjord (pronounced “fyord ”) is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides, created by glacial activity. College Fjord was “discovered” in 1899 and the glaciers were named after elite colleges.

Alaska with seniors - cruise plus land trip | United States Forum | Fodor's Travel Talk Forums
Hello guys. We are a three-generation family of six persons, aged from 25 to 88. Our oldest family member is, unfortunately, walking impaired. We want to travel to Alaska in July/August 2014. We will fly from Germany to and from Vancouver. Our rough idea is that we fly into Vancouver, board a cruise ship and sail to Seward. There we rent a car and drive to Denali, spend a couple of days there and drive to Anchorage and fly back from Anchorage to Vancouver and then home. My questions are: What else would you recommend for such a trip? Actually, we have a couple of days more, and what sidetrips would you recommend for our crazy party? (Since we have the two seniors, hiking and kayaking are out of question.) We like to drive by ourselves. But would you recommend any tours (e.g. wildlife viewing tours)? Do you recommend an additional small-ship cruise into some fjords? For the main cruise from Vancouver to Seward, which cruise line would you recommend? (Our seniors tend towards the Holland America Posted in the United States forum
