if it helps you we went on the Pride of America for our honeymoon in 2005 and we are going back next year. I grew up cruising on the greatest cruise line ever (hands down) Home Lines and was used to luxe service and did not have a hard time with NCL. the cleanlieness comments i think are mostly from disgruntled former employees or from people who had bad cruises,which can happen on any cruise line. go with NCL you will have fun and experience the islands to the upmost.
