Avoid the Crowds at the Buffet on Embarkation Day ~ Enjoy a More Leisurely Lunch Those who have cruised before know what a popular place the ship's buffet is on embarkation day.  It's as though 3,000 cruisers arrive on board and haven't eaten in days.  Eager, hungry vacationers line up at the door, squirt the required antibacterial lotion into the palms of their hands, fill their plates, and search for the grand prize: a sea...
