2013 Cruise Dates/Itineraries - 1st time on DCL

Our family is considering a DCL cruise in 2013. Here is our situation

Family of Four
-Husband, Wife and two daughters (11, 13)
-4 or 5 visits to WDW plus one trip to DL as a family
-One cruise to Alaska on Holland America

-We don't want to take our kids out of school, so we are looking at Spring Break (week of March 25th), summer, or the week of Thanksgiving 2013.
-We want a cabin with a window or a deck. Single cabin for us to share. Not interested in the virtual portal.
-With Colorado being in the middle of the US, we could sail out of FL, TX or CA. The flights are similiar cost/length.
-Not interested in Alaska since we already did a cruise there (it was beautiful)
-Interested in the on board shows (which ships have the best?).
-Interested in Castaway Key but not mandatory
-Less interested in shore excursions.
-Interested in a cruise that is around a week long (not interested in a 3/4 night)
-Husband has been known to get sea sick, so we would prefer smooth sailing as much as possible.

-Recommended itineraries?
-Any season we should avoid based on our above mentioned availability
-Should we try and get on one of the newer/larger ships? Does it really matter since we have never been on a DCL anyways?
-We would like to get our best value? Any time of year? Port? we should look at to get the best price.

Thanks in advance for your feedback and suggestions.
