Buffet at lunch time reminds me of chinese buffets being closed by the health department on the 6 o'clock news, 

1 ice cream machine for 1000 more passengers than smaller competitions boats with 5 or 6 ice cream machines and buffets at least twice the size without the waiting to get food, or the pa system asking people to vacate their tables so others can eat.

Superior port with excellent picnic, although hamburgers could be much better, hot dogs are appparently preserved with salt rather than refrigerating
