Q – It seems like a lot of the cruise lines are cutting out the Midnight Buffets. We are working our way up to one of the five-star, inclusive small ships you write about but we’re trying to find one that has midnight buffets.
A – Sorry – they have gone the way of Bingo and Horseracing. The top-tier lines just do not feel that their clientele is of a mind to eat heavily at midnight. But we think if you try one of the better lines you will find that the snacks served throughout the main lounges and the 24-hour room service will more than suffice. On most of these lines you can get pretty much what you want when you want it. We doubt you will disembark any of the top ten lines we cover looking like a contestant on Survivor.
