Cruise prices get lower and lower and lower with all the competition and cut-throatedness in the business, they HAVE TO cut something(s), as well as nickle and dime us along the way, but......if something has to be cut, I think the midnight buffet is a good place to start, as far as the dining room comments the poster made, that sounds more like not as good service as "X" is tradiionally noted for. I have to agree, though, they could at least come up with a visor or water bottle with ship/line logo for prizes for some of their audience participation games. It probably costs them a quarter to make one of these, and as they sold in the gift shop for $7.95, I think they could well afford to give a couple away. I don't think any of the disappointment you experienced however, is unique to Celebrity.
