Sailed the inside passage 10 year's ago and decided we wanted to see more - so we did the land tour plus cruise. The land portion was hectic with two nights in Anchorage, McKinley Princess Lodge and Denali Princess Lodge. Relaxing when we joined the ship in Whittier for 7 days. Highly recommend doing the land portion first to get the hectic moving, packing and unpacking and deciding what you need to take for that day's activities first, then relax on the ship. Highlights Anchorage, McKinley Lodge and actually seeing Denali, Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay National Park. Denali getting too busy and commercialized and Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan have also become much busier and commercialized in 10 years. Coral Princess is an "older" ship, very well maintained. The food was great and the service good. Our cabin was aft and there is a small, private, walkable deck aft which was a pleasant way to get another, final view of glaciers. One feature we really liked was the wash basins right outside the buffet restaurant - not just hand sanitizer, plus a strategically placed crew member to ensure passengers used the wash basins. Overall a great way to see more of Alaska.
