There are chocolates on the pillows so I’m not sure why that made someone’s list?

They used to be GOOD chocolates that my grandkids still remember that I brought home for them🎁

We missed the Century and the Murano Restaurant on The Century. 
I wish Celebrity would have turned the Century into an all suites cruise ship.

Plastic straws so I can have a drink without a dissolved straw in it.

 

Formal nights. Every night. Ahhh, the good old days!

Metal ball point pens 

the nice tote bags for CC and above instead of those now given

the Individual wrap chocolate squares that were in the wooden box at Cafe al Bacio

Daily bottle of water in AQ

Blanton, Bakers, Booker, Basil Hayden, Knob Creek 

footstools on the balcony in CC, AQ and etc

Daily news sheets

The restaurant 5 on 5 or whatever it was called that is now the sushi bar.  It was a nice place for embarkation lunch or a decent sit down lunch for $5

Cheese and wine on the lawn concerts and sail aways.  
Star gazing seminars hosted by the officers on the top deck. 

 

Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅

That would be an interesting concept.

Celebrity has eliminated Cellars on the Edge class and we were told that they are eliminating Q-zine when refurbishing the S class ships. I also miss the Tuscan Grille on the Edge class ships.

Those are still available upon request. Request them on the first day and you're good for the rest of the cruise.

Being under the weather today, I skimmed through my all my cruise journals. Our first cruise with Celebrity was 2006, and we’ve done 11 or 12.  So not too long ago. 
Things I miss from the first cruises to now are the top quality desserts and the delicious soups. There used to be more room between tables in the MDR. And since each waiter was responsible for fewer tables, he/she was more relaxed, and able to serve us better.


I sure like the more comfortable beds and bedding now!!

I wish they would bring back "walking the plank" for chair hogs and others.  And also lashing one to the mast for cutting in lines and being rude.  I do not for see these things being brought back but would definitely help with a lot I think.  And this is meant as being a joke people for all those who think its real. 

 

I guess my one thing I wish they really brought back were better bourbon selections, I do miss the really good towels they use to have, but probably had to do away with since people took them home with them  Otherwise, as much I as i remember the late night snacks and the midnight buffets, part of the overall experience I can see why they are not needed for me anymore.  The overall experience for me now is just as wonderful as my first cruise, tho a little different now that everything is over searched out on the internet now for me.  I go into each cruise with the same excitement and leave them feeling completely refreshed.  I look forward to changes and different experiences on cruises.

I still miss the Gourmet Bites offered in the casino late night.  And I really miss the dessert show and tell platter.  Ironically some of our local restaurants now do that while my favorite cruise line doesn’t think it’s appropriate.

i don’t miss the midnight buffet (way too much waste in food and effort), but I do miss the individual ice sculptures and food carvings.  They were very special.  

I started to cruise with X in 2003 (30 cruises) and do miss some of the many things others have mentioned but I really like enough of the newer additions to X to keep coming back.


I certainly agree with the idea of being given a list of possible requested items or services given out to everyone, or at least put it on the TV. New cruisers don’t know what is possible and it just might make them returning guests.

Yes, weren't those original beds horrid?  Almost put me off cruising!

There was a period where =X= stopped putting them out.  As I was told, it was the number one complaint that =X= received for a period of time, so due to the small cost, they re-instituted the chocolates.  Maybe not as good as before, but back nonetheless.

Bistro on 5; now Sushi on 5.  We liked both, maybe Sushi on 5 a bit more.
