A Formal Night Renaissance?

What, Crystal only has square soap?


Maybe not even that 😉

It could be just Liquid soap 

Although I’m hoping for a bar as well as that’s my preference

A new supplier was named for toiletries just before the pandemic shutdown

I’m late to the party to this thread (delayed trying to squeeze into my tux 🙄).

 

I need @KenzSailing to develop a spa menu at the Chez. 🤔

 

 

 

 

 

Done, at least for spring.  We offer the option of subing out the guacamole for our cicadamole with our famous cicadadilla.   But act fast, as this will be coming off the menu for the next 17 years.

 

And wait until you hear what exactly imparts the green color to our healthy menu smoothies.

Sounds like you (luckily) missed the red ball of soap introduced a number of years ago - Red Flower I think. Awfully inconvenient - and thankfully short lived!

I think we just might bring a bar or two just in case!

I am eagerly awaiting a toiletry report from the Bahamas.  ☺️ 

 

However, I think the plan was to use up the old ones during 2020, so they might not start right out with the new ones.   And if the new ones involved refillable containers, which was never to my knowledge confirmed or denied, they might now be on hold indefinitely or back to the drawing board.

 

My guess is that most likely there will be round (but flat -- not spherical) bar soap provided, at least initially.

They did confirm the motel-style refillable containers.  I specifically remember because I threw up a little in my mouth.  😕  I do think a bar soap was planned in addition to the liquid though, as they’ve always had.

 

Regarding shapes, it’s funny but I can’t ever remember Crystal having square soap.  I’ve sailed with them when they featured toiletries by Sebastian, Neutrogena, Aveda and ETRO and all featured round soaps to come degree.  In 2006 I sailed on Serenity instead of Symphony though so I missed the ship-specific Red Flower promotion and the roundest soap of all.

So maybe it would be a good requirement if guests had to wear masks when leaving their room.  This would save many the time to put makeup on plus the associated costs.

I wear make up with masks.your eyes show very well. I have lipstick on some masks..oh well.

Now I know things are getting back to normal around here.

 

For close to one year most of the threads and discussion was about COVID-19.

 

Isn't it nice to now be discussing formal attire.

 

Next we will be discussing some wanting to go back to the days of chocolate on the bed at night. You know, pillow chocolate.

 

Or Caviar anytime you want it.

 

Or specialty restaurant fees.

 

Or maybe we'l hear about smoke coming from the back of the ship.

 

It's great to be back to normal.  Well, some type of normal.  Oh those were the days.

 

Keith

Candy on my bed.I would love that vs pizza at 11.

caviar..you mean the good stuff not what we get on formal night!

For those wondering what we’re on about. Here’s the thread on the new range of toiletries 

 

 

Not enough I carry conditions and liquid hand soap I will have to carry bath gel!! This was the one ship I could use the bath gel and  shampoo

Don't we need a separate thread for the shape of soap discussion?  If I remember correctly you need a different shape for formal nights than for casual nights😀

Well, there you have another service opportunity! If we can have a pillow menu, maybe we should have a soap menu.  Shape, size, color scent... local or imported... solid, liquid, gel....

 

(I have spent way too much time and money on soap this year.)
