Default lobster question for the Royal----

I just want to make sure that I understand my options for the 1 or 2 nights that I want lobster on the ship.

Ocean Terrace---It is $10.00 per person to get 4 small lobster tails? Are these the same taste, quality as mdr when offerred, for free? What night is lobster served in mdr? I know the formal nights are Tues and Fri--

Sabatinis and Crown Grill-- Is the lobster the same as mdr and or Ocean Terrace?

If so, then I would rather eat other things in both these restaurants.

I did see a few photos on this board, but forgot which links. I know the lobster won't be the fresh Maine ones, but that's ok. I just like eating it a couple of times in the carribean, for whatever reason....

All I know is that the lobster was offered on Friday night(the second formal night)and if you would like a second tail they will bring you a complete double of the entree.

Had the lobster in the main dining room on Royal on the Thanksgiving cruise and the tails were unusually plump as well as tender.

Enjoy!

Strange, because I spent 30 days on the Royal and don't recall seeing anything like this.

We were on the Royal's Oct transatlantic sailing and have no clue about "Ocean Terrace lobster", actually don't evern know nything about an ocean terrace on the Royal.
Could this be something on a Royal Caribbean Ship?
We did enjoy lobster in both the Dining Room and the Crown Grill on the Royal.

Default Yeah, I am not crazy then (or maybe I am but..)

Thanks for the above post-- That was it--Royal lobster thing..... Anyway, if anyone actually ate it is it worth the 10 bucks?

That was it...think it's Ocean's Terrace. The Live done by Dave had photos of several things that looked tasty.

I took screenshots of menus from the Royal's very helpful intranet to "refresh my memory".

I did not have the lobster tail, but what I did eat there (Chili and Lime Crab Margarita $6, Seafood Sampler for Two $20) was well worth the money I paid. Matt and Chris from my Week 1 Roll Call also ate there, as well as serval non-Cruise Critic friends I made, and they also all agreed their money was well spent.

The chef behind the counter was a true artisan, and I saw him prepare several dishes included a platter of six fresh shucked oysters, and it all looked and tasted amazing. I'm not really an oysters fan, but the Oyster Shooters were superb and I really enjoyed them. I can only imagine that the lobster tails there are just as good.

I highly recommend trying it at least once, even if you don't get the lobster. There are quite a few things on the menu I need to go back and get the next time.

Here are some pictures:

Chili and Lime Crab Margarita



Fresh shucked oysters



Oyster shooters



Seafood Sampler for Two





Also, with any drink order off of their menu, you can get a complimentary sampler plate. It was all VERY tasty!!!

Dave...your Ocean Terrace photos & experience make me regret not going there during our 18 day Med/TA. Unfortunately no Royal or Regal cruises on our radar...it sure would be great if one deployed to the West Coast.

My '2-week Dining Plan' came in real handy. I don't regret not eating in the MDR as there were sooooo many other places to enjoy. Next time I'll probably do the same, make a 'plan of attack', but focus on some of the casual dining options I only did once, or spend more time up in the Horizon Court/Lido Deck venue or Alfredo's. I do want to go back to the Ocean Terrace Seafood Bar again too.

I don't know about the ones on the half-shell, but the Oyster Shooters really took me by surprise in how much I enjoyed them. I'd definitely do them again and get the Flight of Shooters.
