Default Do they have midnight buffets on the Grand Princess??

This will be my 11th cruise but my first time cruising with Princess. I was wondering if anyone knows if they have any special midnight buffets or anything. I haven't read anything about it and I know a lot of cruiselines are doing away with there midnight buffets. Any info is appreciated thanks.

No they don't have Midnight buffets as the regular buffet dining option is open 24hrs. a day. Also, they don't have a Captains Welcome Aboard Party either. Don't miss, on the 2nd. Formal night, the building of the Champagne Fountain in the atrium. They usually have a great Tropical Night out on deck, which was great fun to watch.

Wow not even a Captains night. Cruiselines really are doing away with a lot of things or maybe its just princess. Thanks for the info.

Once you have cruised one time with Princess you are automatically a member of the Captain's Club.

The Captain does host a reception for all Captain's Club members on one of the evenings, so you'll get to meet him then. This is a 'perk' for repeat passengers though, and not 1st timers!

I returned from the Grand on Oct 26 and had a great time. They did actually have a Captains cocktail party it was on the first formal night. He was going to be making a speech but we didn't stay for that. They served free cocktails and appetizers. I was surprised that they had this since I was told by a few people that they didn't have a Captains cocktail hour. Maybe they just started it recently. I will definately be sailing on Princess again.

Thanks Tracy. Things do change and can make a difference to future cruisers. Princess must have listened to their comment cards. Saving a few dollars on free drinks was not worth the negative publicity.
Glad you had a good time. I love experiencing different cruise lines. Each one has special things to offer. Give Carnival's newly built ships a try next time.
Bon Voyage
