Cruise or land first

Just to get an idea.

With 2 weeks vacation which would you do first?

Cruise to Alaska or a week in Vancouver?

Thank you

Why not a couple of days before it sails and a few days after to get to the places you heard you should have see or tried n when you talk to others on board the ship?

It depends on whether you want to chill out on the ship first or after running around Vancouver for a week. No difference in Alaska between July and August, except in general the sun will set 2 hours later in Alaska (Anchorage) than Vancouver: at 9h15 pm in Vancouver in July and 8h30 in August.

Have a look on the right side, click "show more" to expand the list, for "Are there any special events this month." That might help you narrow down your decision.

As there can be quite a bit of variety in the cruise itineraries, I would figure out which cruise you want first, then working with those dates, figure the rest out from there. As you are talking mid-season, I can't imagine any reason why one way would be better than the other.
