Default Food on the Freedom

I believe I have read reviews that say they serve lobster nightly. Do you know if this is true? When we sailed on the Victory lobster was never an option.

Welcome to Cruisemates!

As far as I know, lobster tail is only served on one Elegant Night. On the Conquest it was a small lobster tail served with some grilled shrimp. It was okay, but nothing to get excited about ! IMO, Red Lobster is better.

I sailed Carnival Freedom in April 26, 2008 and lobster was only available one maybe two nights of a 14 day cruise. I just sailed the Carnival Splendor May 2, 2010 and lobster was only available only on the first elegant night. It was as Fern said one lobster tail with some grilled shrimp. They had a Prime Rib that night was was very good. They worked well together.

We just sailed Freedom on May 8th, and lobster was only served on the first elegant night. It is true that it is only a small tail, but you can order more than one entree

Lobster was only served one night in the main dining room on our 7 day cruise (first elegant night), but you can make reservations at the supper club and have lobster every night there.

Yes, Lobster is only served on "Elegant", (Formal), night. And yes you can have as much as you want...you paid for it.

I did the Panama City Tour in Panama City. It was a boring waste of time and money. I wish I had done the train trip everyone said it was awesome.
