Default Can I buy a disposable Panoramic camera in Alaska?

I am going on a cruisetour to Alaska next month and was wondering if anyone had seen a store selling a disposable panoramic camera in any of these places...

Princess Lodges in Fairbanks, Denali, or Mt McKinley

Ports...Whittier, Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchikan

Ship...Sapphire Princess

Obviously I can buy them online, but I would rather not pack them for the flight. It would be worth it to me to buy in Alaska (expensive, yes) and either find a place to develop the pictures or UPS the cameras home.

I bought a panoramic disposable in Hawaii and it took beautiful pictures.

Thank you in advance for any help or direction you can provide me.

p.s. I do have a very nice camera, but, unfortunately it does not take panoramic. Certain software can help me stitch pics together, but I'd rather not.

Sweet Sailing!

Couldnt you just stitch together digital photos with editing software?

You can definitely buy one in Fairbanks, Juneau, and Ketchikan. They are reasonably priced. In Ketchikan there is a free WalMart shuttle that will pick you up and you can buy whatever you need. I live in Ketchikan, so let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks surfisla. I can't wait to visit your beautiful town.

Since I start in Fairbanks, I'd like to buy a camera there. Do you have any suggestions on where I should look?

I'm staying at the Princess lodge.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm pretty sure Fairbanks has a WalMart too. I'm sure there may be other stores that sell them, but if all else fails...stick with WalMart!
Do they have a free shuttle? dunno.

Just to clarify, you know I'm looking for a Panoramic disposable, right?

Oh! A panoramic...well, if I were you, I'd google "Fairbanks Walmart" and call and ask them. Then you'll know for sure.

Why not buy some in the lower 48. They probably are cheaper and you won't lose time looking for some . more time to see the scenery.
Why not buy a digital camera that takes panoramic pictures.

Thanks all. After doing more research, it appears the disposable panoramic camera has gone by the wayside.

I appreciate all the help.

Sweet Sailing!
