I need the facts about the LOBSTER served on board. In what dining rooms is it served and on what nights. Is it a tail or whole. Is there a limit.
My last 3 ruises they looked like jumbo shrimp.That's exactly what I was thinking but whenever I mention it people jump in saying theirs was huge. I haven't seen a huge lobster tail on HAL since 1984.
Isn't that an oxymoron?
Lobster tail is available on the Pinnacle Grill menu, too.I ordered the lobster in the Pinnacle one time and I wasn't impressed. It was bigger but there was just something I didn't care for. The steaks can't be beat in there.
In the MDR, I usually order two surf, no turf on the formal night they serve surf n turf.

The steaks can't be beat in there.One of our friends and I both ordered the lobster tail in the PG the first time we went. It was gross, unappealing, overcooked, and slathered with something that tasted like Hy's Steak Salt. Ugh. DH's steak diane was outstanding, though, so we've been back. The last time we went my friend ordered the lobster and she enjoyed it. I have been sticking with the steak diane
Never thought about ordering all surf and no turf. I might do that next time.
I recently had a new addition to the menu, it was a half lobster and the head was stuffed with Lobster thermador (sp) and the tail was solid lobster(still a bit chewy)I had this too on the Statendam in Oct.09. I thought it was pretty good but the lobster put up with a bit of a fight to free the contents.
Overall I found that it was far better then the frozen lobster tails HAL serve.
Looking forward to my freshly caught and cooked Bay of Fundy hard shell lobster tonight at the house party we are going to. Crackers and tools are already set aside so I won't forget to take them. ("Bring your own" at a lobster party has a different connotation.)Now that is my kind of party!!!
Bay of Fundy lobster----10+
Cruise ship lobster-----Ho-hum at best.
