I place a high value on the ability to go for a calm stroll on the promenade deck after dinner. I recognize that others don't. Although I enjoyed the cruises I've taken on their new megaship class, I'll avoid them in the future, other factors being equal.
I agree with you, in my opinion - if you choose to spend the majority of your cruise in the casino on a cruise ship you are not just circling the drain of life faster than me, you are closer to the big drop than me! ..... end of rant
Also don't forget the arrangements for when you get to disembark of a few of the smaller South Pacific islands and the wait for tenders. It may be great if you are Elite .....
When you decide to come back 'new' onboard, if you are Elite, you are just another 'sweaty T-shirt' in line with the rest of the pax .... no priority lines.
I does make a BIG difference when you compare ships like Sun and Majestic just due to pure numbers.
I must add personally that I like the Sun class ships for that reason so my opinion may be biased
If you want me I shall be in my stateroom, or the bar, or the pool, or the pool with the bar, or the stateroom with bar and pool in it but definitely somewhere on board a ship!
