Default Lobster

I know this has probably been asked a million times, but I must know. I'm on an 8 day East Carrib. cruise on the Legend next July. Will there ever be a nite where lobster is served as an entree? I've cruised before, but never have seen lobster on the menu. I know noone can tell what the menu will be, but just wondering if this is a standard fare on long cruises like the one I'm going on. Also, should I rent a tux for formal nite or just dark suit? Thanks for your help here.

I have been on 10 cruises and always had lobster one night. Unless you are on the QE2 or Chrystal line a dark suit for a man is fine on formal night!

It says on the cover of a Carnival brochure I have that Carnival serves lobster on EVERY cruise. Enjoy your dinner! Libby

Yep, one of the guarantees Carnival makes is "Lobster on every cruise!" A friend took a Carnival cruise last year, and SWORE they didn't serve lobster, was adamant about it. Later, she mentioned they had chosen to have hamburgers on the Lido Deck one night.....uh oh.....must've been lobster night.

Dark suit is perfectly appropriate, altho you will see a lot of tuxes - and unfortunately, a few folks who don't know what formal means.

If you want to make sure you don't miss lobster night, check the menus outside the dining rooms. They usually post that evening's dinner menu around lunchtime.

Cheers,

"Lobster night" will also almost always be on a formal night, so if you opt to go casual alternative that night, you could miss it. Otherwise wear your suit or tux, and enjoy as many tails as you care to order!

Lobster on Carnival is often served on the first formal night. I don't know how, but I missed it on my last cruise. My tablemate had it too. On the new Legend, it may also be available at the Supper Club, the Golden Fleece for the $25pp service fee which I was just told does include the gratuity. If you love lobster, crab legs, and of course great service, make a reservation to celebrate your special time on board.
The ship is beautiful, (I just toured it on Tuesday). We sail on her next April.
Bon Voyage

What kind of lobster? Main lobster or just the tail?

Hi Henry,
The lobsters are not Maine lobsters. I'm not sure where they are from but I think they are Florida lobsters. Every time I've had it on Carnival, just the tail is served.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

I must have been very lucky. On NCL, had lobster one night and lobster/steak lunch on the pool deck. Almost missed the lunch because I didn't pay attention to the newsletter; just went by chance. So I guess they put that under your door for a reason .
