Default Alaska cruise footwear

We ar going on our first ever cruise to Alaska at the end of May. We signed up for several (non strenuous) shore excursions. We were planning to bring our athletic shoes but are wondering if we should invest in hiking shoes. Any thoughts?
Thanks,
Warmly,
Baachan (Grandma) Linda

Athletic shoes should be fine for non-strenous excursions. I would sugggest that you spray them with waterproofing however.

Or carry a spare pair. There is a very good chance you'll be running into some rain.

I agree with the previous posters, unless you plan on using hiking shoes again in the future, just pack the athletic shoes, as long as they are comfortable, thats the key.

I have never taken hiking boots and have done plenty of hiking. Key is to have water resistant foot wear, and the water proofing spray works great.
