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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
