You won't know what you're missing until you try one. Unfortunately, several years ago I got an upsell to an owner's suite. Boy am I spoiled now.....now I don't want to go unless I have a suite. I don't mean to sound snotty....but I would bet anyone who's had an upsell will say the same thing. I used to say the same thing as you - but now I'll do just about anything to get a suite. You can have the butler bring you almost ANYTHING on the ship and serve you formally in courses - so why go to the specialty restaurants.

I probably shouldn't tell you to try for an upsell - because then you'll be hooked too and will be my competition for upcoming cruises.
