The upside of NCL Pride of Aloha - it's a US registered ship, so that usually means you can file for unemployment when on "vacation" if you're a US citizen- but NCL is no escape from the corporate crap. There is mucho cruise staff duites for dancers and youth staff. Quality of shipboard life if a bit below RCCL standards. The food is worse (really!) and there's a bit more rules and regulations to deal with. But it is Hawaii. Look for the private resorts or upscale lines if you're looking for the 'old school' ship working experience!
