A personal note on shopping in Ketchikan: my camera broke on the 2nd day of our cruise & I had to buy a new one in Ketchikan (our first stop on a 10-day northbound trip). I was worried that it would cost an arm & a leg, and checked into getting some kind of transportation to the Walmart outside of town. Cab rides were quoted as $20! Decided to take our chances at a camera shop right by the cruise dock, and was happily surprised to find a decent brand-name point & shoot camera w/ same features as my old one, for very little more than I would have purchased it at home in the lower 48!
