Based on the Singapore sailings, the buffet will be served by the staff, no self service. Also one thing I noticed was that plates were only in one location with a staff handing it out at the entrance to the buffet. No plates in the individual lines. 
 

For restaurants, it’s as per normal. You wear your mask till there is food on the table. The first thing they will ask you is what kind of water you’d like. Once water is on your table, masks can come off. The try to leave tables empty between groups as much as possible

I wonder if the MDR will set up as many multi-couple tables.  There will always be a need to accommodate families or groups with the large tables, but the couple grouped tables will probably see some additional space between them.  Also resulting in an overall reduction in seating capacity at the start.

This a small yet important detail...glad to see they implemented this.

You mean the "private" tables for two might no longer put you even closer to other couples than sharing a large table with them does?

Yes -  when the "Couple" tables are pushed together to create a "4" guest or "6" guest seating arrangement.    Stewards would either keep together or move slightly apart if a couple wanted to be seated alone.   Will probably have to increase spacing - resulting in reduced floor space.

Not sure why lines would be longer. I think having food served would be faster.  Stick out your plate, get a serving. Move on.

You have upwards of 10 people actively adding to their plates at a time at a given station. There will be no room to have enough staff to be filling that many plates at a time

True, but I think staff would dish out faster and more efficiently.

Doubtful... You'll still have people that will hold up the process wanting to analyze what is being served. Just now that person won't use the serving utensils making sure the item in question won't fight back. Plus I'm sure you'll still have those that want a certain piece.

I can only imagine the great bacon debate that servers will have to deal with.
