I'm going it alone, and although I love kids I'd rather avoid a boat load of misbehavers. If I went on land August 23, ending with cruise, would I be avoiding the kid crowd? I just want to relax.

Any suggestions would be a blessing.

That would be a great time to go if you want to avoid children, as many schools will be back in session by the end of your cruise.

That said, you might want to consider renting a car and reserving your own hotels in Alaska rather than buying the land tour portion from Princess. The cruise lines' land tours are quite expensive, and Alaska does a great job of maintaining the main roads.
