I don't think I remember a DI in any of the Alaska ports (probably because they are US ports). In any case I wouldn't waste my time with the charms. They are just a marketing gimmick to get you to go into a DI store and talk to a sales person... who of course puts the hard sell on you to buy some real jewelery. Sorry but I have better things to do with my time when in a port than to go to a jewelery store.

If the cruise lines were not getting significant kickbacks from these "preferred stores" they wouldn't push them onto everyone.
