Default lobster

hi!
I've read a lot of posts about the fabulous food on carnival. We will be on victory in october for our very first cruise.
I thought our travel agent mentioned being able to get lobster on formal night but have seen no mention of that here. Does anybody know if that's true? How about crab legs?
Just wondering.
Thanks!

Hi missdeels,

On our two Carnival cruises they served lobster. I believe it was on the second formal night, but that may have changed. Be aware that what they serve is "cold water" lobster. (Not Maine lobster) They are small but you can have as many as you want! No crab legs, though

We had lobster on our first formal night of both of our Carnival cruises. But I didn't like it as well as I do what we can get at restaurants in Houston. It was cold and a little rubbery. Also, one night on our second cruise, crab legs were offered as an appetizer, but I am allergic and did not order them.

Good luck and have fun,
Jennifer

My hubby always gets the Lobster on the formal evenings. Last cruise he ended up eating 4 lobster tails. I don't like lobster but he said they were great. Order as many as you care to eat! Have fun and happy eating!!!

The lobster they serve is warm water lobster, Maine lobster is cold water lobster, much sweeter, have big claws. If you love Maine lobster you will be disappointed in the lobster served on the cruise ships. The fact that they broil it just overcooks it and dries it out.

Crab legs are served on cruises that are eight days or longer. They are already cracked opened.

Default Lobster on the Mariner of the Seas?

Was just wondering ig Lobster was offered at all on the dinner menu on the MOTS?

If not, do they offer it in the speciality restaurants?

Thanks~!

Every cruise I have been on offers lobster at least one night, or at least what they call lobster, as a New Englander Lobster is MAINE lobster and those on cruise ships are almost always Southern, clawless lobster, not the same by a long short but passable.
