the buffet is open for breakfast the last day right?

we are doing a back to back and don't want to rush we have early dining, so that means early breakfast. I was wondering if we can sleep in go to the buffet then leave the ship and check back in

Yes, it's open. They serve until 8:00, but you can remain there until 8:30, when they close it up to get ready for lunch for the new cruisers.

We always eat our last breakfast at the buffet, and have never found it crowded on any of the ships in many cruises. It is a lot of fun to sit up there, watch the scenery, and not feel rushed to finish.

But they do close the line exactly on time, so be prepared for that.

Wow I guess we just were unlucky that day. We couldn't even find a table in the dining room, we had to go and sit out by Nemo's reef.

Yes it is. I went up and made a plate for our family to share while DH checked over our stateroom one last time. This was much better for us than taking a 2 yo to breakfast at 6:45(?).

I was so happy to learn that the buffet was opened in January. I had seen Lincoln, got back to the room by 1:30AM and did not want to be ready for 6:30 MDR seating! It worked out fine. Wasn't particularly crowded.

It is open

and it is the best option so you can have more control over your schedule...but the food options are more limited than the normal buffet...

Yes, and it's much better than the last-day barely-get-to-sit-down because you food comes out so fast breakfast.

Anyone care to elaborate on what they offer this particular morning? Specifically, bacon, pancakes, smoked salmon, potatoes? French toast maybe? These are my breakfast favorites.

Magic in Feb

Eat at Top Sider buffet. We were told we had to clear rooms by 8. They started express departure at 7:45. We stood in line to leave boat that went along side of Luminere and it was full serving breakfast. Top Siders will be remodeled in Magic end of summer dry dock and over haul. It will be like Fantasy and Dream.
