Default Best Lobster in Western/Mexican Caribbean?

This is our first cruise and we are sailing RCI to Grand Cayman, Georgetown; Costa Maya, and Belize City. We LOVE seafood and are looking for advice on where to go for the best lobster and seafood. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I second that-best is on the ship since its free (so to speak)! On RCI Navigator I had lobster one night at Portofinos (they gave me two tails since they were on the small side) and then the next night in the main dining room. Both were very good.

The lobster on the cruiseships will likely be the type with claws and these are colder water lobsters, not Caribbean. The most common Caribbean lobster is the spiny lobster and they have no claws. I haven't seen them on a cruiseship but tried them in the Florida Keys. They are quite good and probably the same wherever you go in the islands.

Lobster in reg dining rooms on Celeb & Royal--always chewy-better off with beef & ask for the lobster tail as a side or extra--
