I believe every ship has a midnight buffet.

The Captain's party is usually on a formal night so you'll be wearing formal attire. Hope you have a great trip.

there is no longer such a thing as a midnight buffet on carnival. they've not had one for quite some time. every night you can get something after
midnight like burgers, dogs. pizza is available 24 hours. but the midnight buffet is a thing of the past.

I don't think they called it a midnight buffet but on my last couple of Carnival cruises, there were large buffet food set out for the deck party on the lido deck on at least one night of my 7 day cruise (Destiny 10/06). I think there was some sort of gala buffet also but I didn' t attend it.

It is not a every night event any more.

If that's true, they've changed it since last year. They had a midnight buffet every night on the Miracle in April 2006. It was always popular from what I saw so I don't understand why they would stop it.

Are you thinking of the big desert one they hold in the main dining room? They have that on the Inspiration but we slept through it

When we were on the Ecstasy in March, there was a midnight buffet one night. It was a Mexican food type. There was another night that they had a midnight buffet in the dining room. So that makes two midnight buffets during a four night cruise.

I believe the 7 night Destiny cruise had the same thing. I am not a fan of taking pictures of food (unless the food is going into my mouth) so I generally don't do the oohh and aaww over the gala buffet anymore. Been there, done that.

Also, now that you mention it, every lido deck party buffet has been mexican food. I eat late dinner for at 11:30 the last thing I want to see is rice, beans, cheese and bread so I don't partake in that either. In fact, I generally sit downwind (or is it upwind) of the food b/c I don't even want to smell it I am usually so full from dinner.
