Something local to the region you're sailing! I still feel sad that there was no key lime pie when we stopped at Key West! Or meatballs when in Sweden....

I would like to see more Asian dishes added (like Pad Thai, curry, etc).  I know some of it can be requested on the side, but it would be nice to have it formally on the menu.  This can also cover lot

Y'know what I'd actually love to see added? Cajun / Creole dishes! What I wouldn't give for a good bowl of shrimp / crawfish etoufée and dirty rice!

In other words, you want a return to what they had prior to about 2010.

I only started cruising in 2016 so I wouldn't know. Sure.

You know what they say, what's old is new again. Some of the best new ideas are just recycled old ideas.

I've said it before, they have a million different ingredients on board. It shouldn't be that hard to come up with a rotating menu. Take your main proteins and do them each 10 different ways. I'm not talking nightly, per se, but it would definitely be feasible to do one quarterly. Not offer the same menu for 4-5 years. I've worked in and around the hospitality industry for more years than I care to admit and I know it came be done.

I really wish they would go back to rotating the bread options nightly.  You used to get a whole new option of warm (I won’t say they were hot...they rarely were) breads to select from every night.  Then they went to the same few standards every night and then finally, you were stuck with whatever selection of bread they put on your table every night.  That was about the time we stopped eating in the MDR - ever.

When I first started cruising on Royal Caribbean, I remember they didn't have bread baskets on the table. The assistant waiter would come around and give you a single piece, and you could always ask for more. I know more recently there are now bread baskets on every table. Although I love my bread basket (and usually finish it), I notice how much bread is wasted when it is on every single table. I understand it is less work for the assistant waiters since they are already so busy,  but I believe they should go back to the old method and only provide the baskets on request. I feel bad with all of the wasted food and it hurts me to see all the uneaten bread.
