Chocoholics buffet

Recommended Posts

Does anyone like me regret the loss of  the chocoholics buffets.  They were always very much looked forward to appreciated and enjoyed by almost everyone on board. The kitchen staff always seemed to enjoy them as well judging by the big smiles as a result of all the compliments and praise heaped upon them.

Whilst I did like the chocoholics buffet/walk through what I didn’t like was the way people used to pile their plates high with various chocolate fancies, and then leave half of them untouched. Watching some folk eating wasn’t a pleasant sight either...

just my view 🤓

Most cruise lines seem to have cut out Chocolate ,and Midnight Buffets.

I never attended a Chocolate Buffet ,but did attend a couple of late night Buffets, we took pictures and went to bed, being to full to eat anymore.that did not stop our fellow passengers some of them entered the Buffet Knife ,fork and spoon ready to dig, before the rest of us viewed the food?

RCI and Celebrity claimed that due to passenger response they were stopping the late night buffets so much food was wasted, and said they would put snacks the bars .

Just wonders how much some folk can eat ,I feel really ill if I overeat....Davybe

We used to enjoy the chocoholic buffets held in MDR on P&O and was a very enjoyable experience but again something else that was stopped due to cost cutting and now a chcolate themed buffet in afternoon tea seems to be the norm. With regards to amount of food wasted by people loading their plates and then leaving them untouched are half eaten is the norm on all cruise ships and not just with chocoholic buffets you only have to look at any buffet whether it be breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, never been to buffet in evening, and the amount of waste is unbelievable and the attitude of some to grab as much as they can and have the attitude well I have paid for it. At least the fish enjoy it.

We went to the chocolate buffet  on our first cruise, and have never been again. I have to add that I was embarrassed by the actions of fellow passengers. A rugby scrum comes to mind.

Yes I do agree we went once, and I felt sick at the amount people had on the plate and could not have got anymore in there mouth, then left a pileup mess 

only my opinion of cause.

I admit we tried and enjoyed the Chocaholics, Midnight , or Celebrity's Brunch buffet, but don't really miss them now they are gone, and if by concentrating on their routine dining options helps cruise lines to maintain good standards, then that's fine by me.

I tried to go to one just to see what it was like but there was such a huge queue waiting to get into the MDR I simply couldn't be bothered. I like chocolate but not that much.

It is or was always one of them things that was seen as part of cruising as was the Baked Alaska parade etc, but once I'd seen it I wasn't particularly bothered if I saw it again, shame for new cruisers though if it does completely disappear it is quite a spectacle.
