Lobster night on the Epic?
 
I am in the process of planning one of our our group dinners for our Cruisemates Group cruise in March, and, would like to know which formal night, they serve lobster. Hubby missed it last time, and does not want a repeat:) Thanks.

We too looked foreward to Lobster Night on the Norwegian Pearl last year, as my son LOVES lobster. Sadly, it was not edible.

(Honestly, if a cruise line is going to go through the expense of offering lobster, at least make sure its cooked properly)

Cant tell you which night lobster was served (dont remember) but I do remember it was a well guarded secret. We had to ask several times, and I do recall it was early in the cruise.

A cruisemate told me that you could get lobster any night you wanted it in the specialty restaurants if you wanted to pay extra. Just as a backup in case you miss formal night.

Is it Maine or cold water lobter or South African or Caribbean lobster or is it crayfish tails.

One cruisemate said, the lobster tails served on cruise ships are actually crayfish tails. The crayfish look just like lobsters but do not have large claws; and they taste like lobster.

Another said that she was from Maine and these were South African lobsters.

Who's telling the truth and does it make a difference.

On one early cruise, it was actually called Maine lobster...ya right...not! Hubby was disappointed. To the best of my knowledge,and I eat them very infrequently mind you..I believe they are Caribbean loster tails. Maybe an expert lover will check in.

Oh.This is too bad, but at least you got to eat at Moderno.was it good. Did you enjoy the salad bar? The salad bar is a meal in itself. Glad you got something good on trip.

They sure do present a beauitful salad bar...One thing we noticed right off was, they are not serving full cold shrimp...they slice it in half. :cry:
