Do we need waterproof boots for our Alaska cruise??

This is our first Alaska cruise soon and I have heard to expect rain. Do we need waterproof boots just for the average shore excursions and walking around town? We do not plan any hikes or anything. What type of inexpensive waterproof boots would you suggest for men and women?

Well, I posted on your other thread about the waterproof boots for a young adult, but here it is again:

 

We just used a waterproof spray (bought at Big 5) to spray our regular walking shoes, low-cut hiking boots, and sneakers for our Alaska cruise/tour.

 

Worked fine. No need for special waterproof shoes.

Make sure you have two pair of shoes in case one gets wet. Lightweight wool socks (ie Smartwool) are helpful because they're more comfortable if they get wet. But honestly, for just walking around town and normal excursions, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
