Default Dining facilities

A review on the Statendam commented on the hours that the buffet line was open on the Lido deck. On both of our previous two cruises, we have eaten breakfast and lunch from the buffet on the Lido deck. We don't want to get up early to eat brakfast while we're on vacation. Was the short hours mentioned in the review an exception, or does HAL have a buffet on the Lido deck for breakfast on lunch? What hours are breakfast and lunch served?

On our recent Zuiderdam cruises, typical dining hours were:

7:00 - 10:30 am - Continental Breakfast
7:30 - 10:00 am - Buffet Breakfast
11:00 - 2:00 pm - Buffet Lunch
11:00 am - 1:00 am - Ice cream parlor
11:00 am - 1:00 am - Pizza and pasta
6:30 - 8:00 pm - Casual dining
11:00 pm - 1:00 am - Late night snack

11:00 am - 5:00 pm - Terrace Grill, taco bar, hamburgers & hot dogs

We seemed to be able to find far more food than anyone needed at just about anytime of the day. There is also 24 hour room service.

Enjoy.

Thanks for the reassurance. This is about what we experienced before, but the review I mentioned said the breakfast bufffet was only available 6:30 - 7:00 a.m., then no buffet at all until 11:30 p.m.

I don't know what review you are referring to but we have never seen anything like those kind of abbreviated Lido hours on any HALship. Whoever posted that review was badly mistaken....

That is confusing. Even if the person writing the review was referring to disembarkation morning, the hours are just too short. Have never seen that before. Do you know where the review is or who wrote it? Is it on this web site?

Maybe I misunderstood. I went back and read it again. He said "the buffet was only open 6:30 - 7:00. Bam." I took this to mean 6:30 - 7:30 a.m. with the B a typo. Reading it again, he could have been referring to the evening buffet.

That still isn't right . Maybe it was an error in typing. As S7S stated the Lido Buffet is open 6:30pm - 8:00 pm. Confusing!

Maybe I misunderstood the comment. I went back and reread it. He said "the buffet was only open from 6:00 - 7:30 Bam. " I took the B to be a typo.

Dizy,
I've answered this twice, but it still doesn't show up. I went back and reread the review. What it says is "the buffet was only open from 6:00 - 7:30 Bam." I took the B as a typo, but given your answers, I must have misunderstood. Thank you.
