Default Midnight buffet inquiry on Legend

Does anyone know from experience if the Legend offers the famous Midnight Madness Buffet or Chocolate buffet or anything special on that note? I was only on 2 cruises where they still offer my favorite part of the cruise.....and sad to be disappointed when other cruises had stopped doing it. If Legend does it on 8 night cruise, when is the most likely night during the cruise to expect this treat? thanks to all We are sailing June 5th (time is dragging on at this point......but on the cruise time will surely fly quickly!)

YES-the Legend still has the Gala Buffet. I just was on her for the special 6 day Bermuda cruise and the gala buffet was held on the 5th night. There was a special hour beforehand to take pictures and to view the glorious carvings of cheeses, chocolates and ice. The other nights was 11:30 PM snacks, with the pizza and ice cream bars open 24 hours.
Have a great time.

Thanks arldeb for the rapid response....but hey, I wouldn't expect a delay in replying from a "NYC neighbor"! We city folk do everything faster than normal.....walk, talk, drive, shop, eat, etc. The only thing we can't speed up around here is RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC!!!! () Why is it called "Rush" when all we do is "crawl"?

I recall that one-hour photo op session before the buffet on other ships, but the last few cruises cancelled because many people were in their p.j.'s before midnite! (11:30 pm). So what....if I don't put on that unnecessary extra 5 or 40 lbs. I WANT MY CHOCOLATE!!! You were on a 6-nite and buffet was on the 5th nite.....I'm on an 8-nite so i figure buffet will be either the night before docking or the night before the last formal thing....looking forward more now than ever!

just got off the Legend 4/26 to the E. Caribbean. Yes, they did have the midnight buffet. I don't remember exactly which day although I know it was one of the last few nights. Unfortunately, we didn't make it since we were always in bed by 11 or so but we saw pictures and it was beautiful. You can get there at 11:30 to take pictures. Enjoy your cruise.....she is a beautiful ship. We had a great time!

Here's the link to my pictures. There are 2 sets. One from my first Legend cruise-many pictures of the ship and shows. The second one from the recent trip with many pictures from the buffett.
