Marc, on many ships, there is NO need for fixed dining,and good room service is a given, and excellent most cruises..that's my experience at least.
I guess I have been misinformed. I had thought it was hard to get a hot breakfast on many ships through room service. Hot breakfast and matzoh ball soup at 2am are my main orders from room service.
I am trying to come up with an alternative (somewhat cheaper) cruising alternative. Currently, Azamara is moving towards the top of the list. I need fridge in room and a few other amenities so I am still researching options. When doing an apples to apples comparison between Regent and Ociania, Regent often wins (especially if you take advantage of included excursions). I think Azamara with their beverage inclusion comes out better.
