Here is a DIY pre Land tour we were going to do this July, followed by boarding Radiance of the Seas in Seward.
This will give you an idea what can be done time wise and how far things are in miles apart. This would be by flying into Anchorage on Friday night one week before cruise start date and flying home from Vancouver or Seattle after cruise.
Always best to do land tour first before cruise. So you can relax on the cruises and makes for an easier shorter flight home.

Saturday Night.. Palmer, AK ( Half Day Knik Glacier Tour) (Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge - 1 night)
