Sometimes you get what you pay for (RCCL), however with Epic sometimes you don't. If you were confined to your cabin (like me for three days) room service does seem to matter.
I guess the two things we see to be going back and forth on are basic ideas of price versus value. The two are often quite different with different people having varied views on both. To me cheaper/more expensive does not mean better or worse. Perceived value has to do with what is best overall with many variables including price.
