I think what Made Kirstie Alley's Saavik better than Curtis' WAS that she wasn't as Vulcan acting.
With due respect to Nimoy, Alley received better direction than Curtis. At least as I understand it, Nimoy instructed Curtis to play Saavik completely emotionless.
That could have played a factor. When you see Curtis in TNG's Gambit though, something in her performance of that character also makes me feel she wouldn't have done well with Savvik as Alley played it. Curtis is just a little too edgy or something. Cattrail not so much
