Could Alaska’s Capital Ban Cruise Ships on Saturdays?

Juneau, Alaska’s capital, with a population of 32,000, is considering a ban on cruise ships on Saturdays.

Juneau is a popular stop for cruise ships, bringing in thousands of tourists weekly.

City officials propose a ban on cruise ships on Saturdays to reduce congestion and environmental impact.

Concerns about overcrowding, pollution, and strain on local resources drive the proposed ban.

Local businesses could see a shift in tourist patterns, with both positive and negative effects.

The community is divided: some support the ban for a quieter city, while others fear economic losses.

City officials will vote on the proposal next month. What do you think?
