Sorry to tell you there is NO chocolate buffet on this cruise. However, there are plenty of sweet things to sink your teeth into. I think Thursday night is a pretty good night to try one of the specialty restaurants. The first formal night the food in the main dining room is very good. The second formal night it is good if you like lobster. If you would rather not do the formal nights or just want to do one of them, then you may want to do Chops or Portifino on one of those nights. Any other questions, let me know. I've met some other people from different board online who are going on the Mariner on May 30th and some of them are going to get together at the Schooner Bar on the ship around 3pm just after we leave Nassau. Stop by if you guys want to meet some of them.
