Default Lobster Night

Will they have a lobster night on Crown Princess? If so is do they on all of the cruises? If so is it on one of the Formal Nights? Is the Formal Nights on the Sea Nights?

Formal nights are on Sea Days. so,no one has to rush back from port. Lobster is usally served on the first formal night, if memory serves me right:)

If I may suggest to you to try the Steak House on the Crown. You will get a choice of Austraillian or Maine Lobster for part of your dinner. The Steak choices are good also. The extra cost is worth it! We found it a nice way for a celebration. Have a great trip 8)

Thanks for the info. We had planned on trying the Steak house, all the reviews are so good on them. And will make sure to try them now that I know you can get lobster there too!

on our recent Princess cruise, Lobster was the last formal night; I guess it depends and yes, the steak house is supposed to be very good. We didn't try it, we opted for Sabatinis instead.

A bit of advise, you can order a lobster anytime at Sterling Steak House, just ask.
The cuts of meat are Choice cut. NOT PRIME.
With the price cuts, don't be surprised to see a select cut of your plate.

Lesson for the day.
Here are the USDA specification:
1. Select= bottom of the barrel
2. Choice=sold at Costco
3. Prime=sold at Ruth Chris and Mortons

Your memory is not serving you well.
Lobster is served on the second formal night.
Princess has cut back on the lobster tails, now they are only giving you one tail and two prawns (a large shrimp). If you ask the waiter for seconds of the lobster tail, he has to get permission from the table captain before he can get it for you.
I know the costs of running a cruise ship have gone up but that is a terrible place to start cutting costs.
Of course if you want to pay about $35 extra you can get a Maine Lobster in The Crown Grill.

Jim your info is only partly correct, Each ship has it's own day for the lobster night. On my last cruise it happened on formal night after we left Victoria, BC. Also the policy of asking the head waiter or Matradi is again a ships choice, sometime yes sometimes no. I just got three tails on the same plate just bu asking.
I never go to the costly dining rooms. Why pay when the other dining rooms are free?

Remember cruise on a budget and you get more cruises.

Lobster night can occur on any formal night, and I have seen formal nights that were on days that were not 'at sea' though that is not usually the case.

The decline in quality of food, noted above, seems to be an industry wide response to the rise in fuel costs. In my opinion it is a short sighted one. I think it would make more sense to face the problem realistically and just raise the price of the ticket. Ditto the airlines! Barring some dramatic alternate energy discover, the price of fuel is NOT going to go back down -- ever! (other than temporary fluctuations)

That is due in large part to the incredible increasing demand for oil in China and India. Cruise lines should face it and deal with it.

Some day we may see a return to a more high-tech version of coal-fired steam turbines.
