Maybe we're weird or something, but we could NEVER seem to get ourselves synchronized with the ship's open buffet times. It was frustrating to always be missing opportunities to eat decently. Moreover, it's somewhat of a let-down to go on a cruise and end up eating cruise-ship pizza for the majority of meals!
We are planning another cruise for next year for all of our friends and family. If anyone has recommendations for cruise buffets that have better accessibility than what we experienced on the Carnival Paradise, we'd love to know so that we can only look at booking only those options in particular.
