I'll admit that on our first few cruises we played the breakfast buffet game on that last morning. Then came a time when I suddenly decided to use the dining room. What a revelation.
It is hard to understood why so many people go breathlessly rushing to the buffet on the debarkation morning. They scurry around looking for a table while their food gets cold, people are yelling and tense, and they stuff the food in as though it was their last meal. They think they are saving time but they aren't.
