Depends on if they received a shipment of lobster. On the formal night, if they've gotten a shippment in, they will have lobster. On my last cruise on the Majesty OTS, it was just Lobster tails.

6 Cruises and Ive had nothing but lobster tails. I would imagine they would have lobster on your cruise jlmkey dont worry.

That is good to know. I thought they did away with lobster on under 7 nite cruises. :D

I have never seen whole lobsters on a cruise, just lobster tails. Has anyone been on a cruise where they served whole lobsters?

Yes, many cruises I've been on has had full lobster. My cruise on the Adventure OTS had full lobster, and when I sailed on the Majesty a month later it was only lobster tails. I don't know if the cut-off is 7 nights or more for full lobster. When I started cruising 6 years ago, every cruise I was on had full lobster.

I was on a nine night, only tails. What size lobsters are we talking about?

We've done 2 different 7 nighters on Freedom and never saw a whole lobster on the menu. We DID see plenty of crabs in the dining room though!

Were they a nice size. Did they crack them open for you? Were they boiled, broiled, stuffed. Whole lobster is fresh not frozen like lobster tails. I would love to have this on a cruise. I'm surprised sailing out of the northeast I have never seen this as lobsters are caught in cold water. Live lobster is much more rare in Florida and warmer climates.

As a lobster lover I think I better book the cruises that Blue books. Seems like he lucks out and gets full lobster. LOL LOL

I guess as long as I get any type of lobster (tail or whole) I'm happy. :D

The tail is the best part.

Lobster tail is good but it is frozen lobster, Whole lobster is fresh. On my last cruise I had two plates of lobster tail and than one of my table mates jokingly told the waiter I wanted another one. The waiter ran off and came back with a third plate which I happily ate :) I like the claws on a nice 2 or 3 pound lobster.
