Personally, I don't care for it. It gets hotter in the sun than the teak wood does. I fully understand the reasons they changed (both environmental and maintenance costs) I know the Freedom used the "fake" wood decking and I assume the splendor does too. It is probably much lighter than wood is also (its just a painted on texture) so that saves fuel. I guess we will just have to get used to it as the new thing since I can't believe they will go back to using real wood.
