I just did the Buffet of Buffets earlier this week. It's $47.99 plus tax now (for TR members) and (as mentioned) a $15 surcharge on Bacchanal and the Rio seafood buffet.

To get the most value, you definitely want to start with a late dinner, then do breakfast, lunch and an early dinner the next day.

I planned on hitting 6 of the 8 (doing TWO dinner buffets both nights), but ended up only making it to 5. I was too stuffed.

Flavors (Harrahs) was my least favorite. Blah.
Paradise Garden (Flamingo) wasn't much better.
Spice Market (Planet Hollywood) was good.
Bacchanal (Caesar's) was phenomenal, WELL WORTH the extra $15. So much great food.
Le Village Buffet (Paris) is awesome for breakfast.

Next time, I hope to hit Carnival World Buffet one night. I have no intention of doing Emperor's Buffet (The Quad) or the Seafood buffet (Rio).

Carnival World actually has snow crab legs. I think the Rio seafood buffet has lobster tails and oysters on the half shell. I don't believe you can actually pile on the lobster tails though. I think you get one or twp at a time and they probably make you go back to your table and then wait in line if you want more. Also - the regular price for the seafood buffet is maybe $5 more than the Carnival World buffet. I'm not sure why they upcharge $15 other than they want to discourage people from doing it as part of the 24 hour buffet cycle.

Also - the adult price is $52.99 if you start on a weekend or certain holidays. The single buffet prices are maybe $1 to $2 more on weekends/holidays.

I went again a few weeks later, and the prices had gone up. I think it was $49.99, and Bacchanal had quite a bit higher of a surcharge than before ($25 I think?), which they didn't disclose until I was at Bacchanal. Ridiculous. The lines were awful at Bacchanal. Over an hour to pay, then 20 minutes each time you went through the meat/seafood lines. It wasn't like that the first time I went.
