Default Booking first cruise

Hi to all! What a great site you have answered so many questions already!

Here are my remaining questions
1. We are going on a 3 night from miami to the bahamas in Februrary. We are either going to book carnival imagination or the norwegien sky (both have same dates and since I am in miami on business it works perfect!) Any thoughts on which is better. in our 30's have 2 kids AT HOME not with us. not big partiers love activities and quiet time
2. How much more than the booking cost should I be figuring in to the trip budget. how much are excersions? alcohol etc. (probally 4 drinks a day between the 2 of us)
3. advice on getting an guarnteed oceanview vs a balcony- I am a big cheapskate! but I have had issues with small spaces in the past, not sure if a balcony would help that issue or if I can just sit on the deck and use the room only to sleep.... then would I even need the ocean view?

Thanks for any help/advice!
