There are few locals in the small Alaskan ports we visited. Many of the store clerks are there only during the cruise season and leave Alaska during the winter.
The ports are overwhelmed by tourists from the many cruise ships. It would be very interesting to see what life is like in these small towns during the winter time.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
