Our 1st 7 night cruise!

We've been on DCL twice for 3 night cruises but Jan. 2014 will be our first 7 night! Is there anything I should know to prepair? I've considered the additional cost of parking and tips. What else? Thanks!
Several WDW vacations as kids, our Honeymoon in 1996, WDW/Wonder in 2000, our first trip with the kiddos WDW/Dream 10/2011, 7 night Fantasy 1/2014

Back to the World - First week of December!

Absolutely everything is a lot more laid back. If the OP hasn't done Palo or Remy a 7 day is perfect to experience those fine restaurants. Also there's also my 2 favorite activities; the Champagne and or the Wine tastings. Enjoy & have a wonderful cruise.

I have to agree with the previous posters, it is so much more relaxing during a seven night cruise. More shows to go to, time to explore the ship, you must try to get into PALO while on board, more wine, beer, or other tasting to do (additional expense), spa time. Just slow down a little and relax
