It depends on the ship. I have found on Carival Triumph and Pride, the piano bar is usually packed at night, and the disco is full and continues until 3am or so.
Hot tubs and pools do not stay open late--I cannot remember the precise hours though. In fact, the pools are drained and refilled with seawater every night, and the hot tubs are run with extra chlorination and can't be used.
Pizza is there 24 hours. I'm told that one Lido deck bar stays open for bottled beer 24 hours.
