AE For the Capital City Weekly Cruise Ship Travelers. Down the gangway they come and into the awaiting facade of downtown Juneau. From the belly of the giant boats, they file-out like ants before dispersing into the many stores. It's raining, so plastic bag ponchos are donned as the sidewalks flow to life. Jewelry shop, trinket shop, jewelry shop again. A host of vendors fight to fill lines of awaiting tour buses. To the glacier, whale watching, kayaking and salmon feeds. Money is gladly shelled out for any taste of the Alaska experience. There is little time and much to do. The cruise ship traveler is herded along as the veteran salesmen know just what to say and just how to say it.
