I took the 6 hour cruise on a day of very poor weather in June. The sights were absolutely spectacular and we saw lots of wildlife including orcas, hump back whales, porpoise and sea lions - so don't let the poor weather hold you back. The crew were just sensational - we had some pretty mighty waves and a lot of people including me were feeling seasick. The crew kept checking on each person individually, giving out water and ginger ale and keeping us up to date about the weather conditions, etc.
The holgate glacier is a pretty amazing sight and definitely worth the longer trip if you can spare the time.
The lunch is a simple wrap and a few snacks but for me that was perfect as it meant a lot more time sitting out on deck and enjoying the view.
If you combining this with the anchorage-Seward train, don't worry too much about connections as both services wait for one another when one is running late.
