Default Midnight Buffets ???

I'm curious ............. I've been on two cruises so far & have not experienced the "Midnight Buffet". Is this something that only happens on certain ships? I've been told it's the ultimate eating frenzy & everyone should experience it once (I know we couldn't stand it every night). The Zuiderdam (2003) nor Disney Wonder (2004) had it when we sailed on them. Will the Statendam (to Alaska 2005) have it (I realize you can't see into the future but has it happend in the past?) Comments appreciated! Cathy

Lavish midnight buffets on HAL are a thing of the past. Now it is called "midnight snack" that starts around 11:30pm.

On Carnival we had "midnight" buffets at 11:00 p.m. and one night was the "grand midnight buffet," and like another writer, we had a "Chocolate Buffet" on an Alaska cruise. Took HAL last cruise with no big midnight buffets and did not miss them at all.
We also have the late seating dinners and have never found the need to eat again in the same evening.

Thanks everyone,
I guess unless I travel on Carnival I won't be having the "experience"!
DeeDee - I don't remember a "midnight snack" on HAL, could that have been the hot Pizza they had every night on the Lido? My husband loved that & made a trip almost every night. We did try the Chocolate Extravaganza & it was wonderful, but way too much chocolate for me. Thanks again, Cathy
