Right off the ship - they are very small towns and you get dropped off right in the heart of town. You'll find it.

There's a lovely scarf shop in Juneau on the main street on the right hand side. Skagway was ok for shopping, some nice unique jewelry shops without being the same as the Caribbean. Ketchikan has some nice stores up by the creek....and buy your canned salmon there...to die for.

Just to revise my post, I think it's a silk store in Juneau that sells scarves, it's not only a scarf shop if you're looking for it.

As mentioned, you should have no trouble finding shopping in these ports, as the stores are primarily on the main streets.

In Skagway, most everything is on the main drag (Broadway) or visible on a side street as you walk down Broadway. Plus many of the stores are in historic buildings.

In Juneau, it is very similar. If you walk down the main street by the cruise docks (Franklin Street) you will see a number of stores. You can either stay on this street or explore connecting side streets if you see something of interest.

In Ketchikan, there are stores on Front Street (by the ship docks) and then also on Creek Street. There are plentiful signs to Creek Street. It is all very walkable and interesting as well (various totem poles and artifacts along the way).
