If money isn't a problem I would say go for the balcony

It gets a bit claustrophobic and stuffy in those lower cabin rooms

lol i was late getting back to the ship (no excursion).. 
seemed like someone was everyday.. they were pretty nice about not leaving people.. we left late many times. 


check on the internet thing... it didnt get cheaper by the day for us that i can remember.. definitely not on my last one.. maybe it depends on where you go.

Have you thought about maybe paying for an inside room for the kids? If you go to the carnival site, it will let you select your room, and if you can, pick a balcony room for your husband and you, and an inside room directly across for your 15 yo and baby.

As far as drinks, you can get the rum runners, they work, and you can take a bottle of wine per adult.

I did the excursions thru the cruise line, that way they can't leave you if you are late getting back to the ship. Also dine in the dinning room, girl, the food was good, we ordered 2-3 entrees each!

We also ordered room service. The food was good. You can order movies for the kids, it's about 10 bucks, but you can watch them multiple times.

If you check with your cell phone company, you can get a plan that you can use while on the trip, and not get charged the crazy roaming prices. Also internet gets cheaper each day you are at sea, so by day 3 or 4 it was worth it for me to pay 50 bucks and be able to get online, Skype, etc.

Don't over pack! I took way too much stuff! Have fun! And the kids will have plenty to do!
