Financial abuse?
By Carol Deaton


March 29, 2006

It's a real shame that a trip that costs $10 for locals on weekends is marked up to $79 for tourists from the Princess cruises. (See page 55 in the Princess cruises' Adventures Ashore handbook.)

Are we going to have to expect to be gouged for the entire vacation? I saved for a long time for this trip, and don't like thinking that financial abuse is part of what I should expect from Alaskans.
