Prince William Sound & Kenai Fjords Tours

If you could do only one of these tours in conjunction with a cruise to Alaska because you're limited to a one day visit, which one would you take? Any input welcome and I would be using either Phillips (for Prince William Sound); otherwise Kenai Tours, or Marine Tours for the Kenai Fjords experience. Thanks for any information!

Hard call. More glaciers, less wildlife, calmer water on the Whittier cruises (also shorter duration) vs. fewer glaciers, more wildlife, (much) bumpier water on the Kenai Fjords cruises, which need to be longer for maximum payoff.

I'd also look at which excursions (if any) you plan to do on the cruise, with an eye to avoiding possible duplication of experience.

Thanks, Gardyloo! Sounds like you can't go wrong either way! I am having a hard time figuring out the perfect cruise tour (cruise and land option) that covers everything I want to see, so knowing all/best options and the pros/cons is helpful!
