Bathtub - Acrylic or Steel?

Any opinions on one or the other?

We'll be replacing our tub and I'd like to know the pros and cons of each.
Currently we have an old-school steel / porcelain tub.

I miss our old steel tub. Held the heat of the water longer for soaking.

Steel is my suggestion . easy to fix chips on your own but the acrylic are nice if you have the money to drop.
