Default No more Midnight buffets?

Say it isn't so. I used to look foward to them. First time cruisers have lost something very special in not being able to enjoy this very special event.

Who said they were over? RCI does them but not every night. On a 7 day cruise they usually have two.

Make sure to bring your camera to the midnight buffet. We usually get there early to get great pictures. Bob

My brother just got off the Enchantment and they DID have the mid-night buffet! I don't think they will get rid of that!

Most 7-day cruises have one midnight or GALA buffet. Sometimes they will have something very late on Lido deck as well.

It really is a waste to have more than that.

Hi guys,
I'm on the serenade of the seas in 2 weeks to alaska, is there a gala midnight buffet on the ship? I sure hope there is. Does anybody know?

I've heard rummblings that the Gala Buffet is going by the wayside. My last cruise was 14 day and had only one Gala Buffet. There was also a Chocolate Buffet on another night. Yummy!

their is only one true midnight buffet on a 7 day cruise, but there is so much to do that you won't miss them on the other nights.

Have spent many months at sea altogether, and have only been to one or tow midnight buffets, probably because we always take late seating, and usually sit and chat with table-mates till 9:30 or 10. After the first couple of cruises, eating is not the main thing.
