What hours is the Lido area open?

I'll give you my 2 cents since no one else has responded. I have only taken 2 HAL cruises (Amsterdam'06 & Zuiderdam'04) so there is a bit of memory work involved here. There is a Lido pool area with BBQs/pizza and there is the Lido buffet. The pool area is open all the time but the pool and hot tubs are netted over at night. I never used the BBQ/pizza pool side but I believe it was only available at meal times. I prefer not to hang out at the Lido pool because of the high amount of smokers. The aft pool area is the place to be. Out in the open with the breeze in your hair.
The Lido buffet is open for coffee/tea/iced tea/water 24 hours but they do not serve meals 24 hours. But I remember snacks being available all the time (I try to stick to 3 good meals when on board to avoid to added weight gain) (but that does not work, could be the amount wine consumed).

Last October on the Zuiderdam, there is coffee and iced tea 24 hours in the Lido. It is open at 6:30 for "continental breakfast" (danish, cold cereal, yougurt, juice, fruit) - 7:30 for breakfast buffet. Closed at 10:30 to switch for lunch. Lunch buffet 11:30 - maybe 3:00? Not quite sure - the Terrace Grill was open longer. Dinner buffet was from 5:30 (maybe) - 10:00 or 10:30. Closed until 11:30 for Midnight Buffet at 11:30. The ice cream stand was open until 11:00 every night.

We are aboard the Statendam in late July, do you suppose that the hours of operation quoted here are the same? Is the name "Llido" used on all HAL vessels to describe this dining area?
