Default Denali - DIY or CruiseTour

We are planning to hit Alaska with friends who will be going on their first cruise. I think the plan will be to fly to Alaska, spend some time in Denali SP and maybe do some additional touring, then cruise back to Vancouver or Seattle.

The initial questions that come to mind are, what are the relative advantages of doing a cruise tour vs. DIY travel? Obviously DIY gives the most flexibility and possibly cost savings - I haven't tried to price things out.

Do most cruise line packages offer single check-in?
Do bags go from your hand in Denali to your cabin?

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
