Not to mention the roast turkey they hand carve for you.
I really don't know the deal with this, other than if you get on early they have it. Then they don't!
I love getting on early. I get to enjoy all the fresh spread they have put out before there is a line. I go meet the Bartender/Manager of the Lido deck bar and introduce myself before there is a crowd. A while later when I actually want a drink they remember me and wait on me first and call me by name!
Arriving early is certainly not for everyone, and I am not recommending to do so. But for those that don't mind waiting in line if there is a delay, it can be very enjoyable to see the ship before it gets crowded.
