NCL is an OK line, but you'll find lots of kids on board, like you would on Royal Caribbean and Carnival. Have you looked at Princess or Celebrity? They are a bit more upscale and are known for a more refined cruise experience with what many feel is better food and service.
I would prefer a cruise on Celebrity or Princess, but money is definitely a factor for us right now. Wedding planning is expensive! Through my research I thought NCL might be a better bet among the popular lines, and FH has cruised with them before. I think I will consult a TA though.
