I asked the pre-concierge about lobster night and was told it was the second night. Was I given the wrong information? Also...do the specialty restaurants have lobster on the menu during lobster night or only the MDR's? Thanks so much!

Lobster Night is Sunday night, so they gave you the wrong info. Only the MDR's have lobster. If you have your heart set on lobster get to the MDR early, we showed up around 7:00pm and they said over a 45 minute wait.

Dear Tymike,

You can also find lobster tails and shrimp at Cagneys, at least according to this menu: http://www.ncl.com/sites/default/fil...way_052113.pdf

Also. one of Gambees posts (around 348, page 18, I think) shows that Ocean Blue On the Waterfront has lobster rolls. One would think that would be a daily offering.

The Waterfront is only open on sea days. The lobster roll there did look yummy!

Apparently, lobster night is always embarkation night fleetwide. I too was given the wrong information on one of my prior cruises.

Yes lobster on the 1st night. It was very good. Ocean blue was 50- pp so we skipped that especially when we heard that they were asking 35- when the ship 1st started sailing & the response was great- so they jacked up the price & people don't seem that interested. The raw bar was empty every day. Just saying...

For our sailing on the Breakaway 2 weeks ago, it was on the first night in the Manhattan room (surf & turf).

It was actually pretty good...

We got there early, pretty much once we sailed out of NYC we headed to the MDR. And yes, get there early, it was pretty packed by 630pm

Fairly soon after the Breakaway launched they stopped serving Lobster in the MDR.

However, it seems that it has now returned, as verified above.

Lobster night is the first night, fleet wide, so if it is there then that's the night it should be served.

I just sailed the Breakaway last week and lobster was served the second night in the buffet. They were not in the main dining room the first night.
They were small but delicious.

Seems it may still be a bit random then.

We just off the Breakaway this past Sunday and shoveled 8 inches of snow on Monday. Ouch...However, lobster night is the first sea day which is on Monday night. They called it a seafood buffet night and they do serve all kinds of seafood including seafood pizza, ceviche, and all you can eat lobsters. I think I had 8 lobster tails and they are very tasty and no need for the drawn butter but they do have drawn butter next to the lobsters if you need it.

As for the line, we showed up around 6 PM and there were no lines maybe 3 or 4 people in line and they have 3 or 4 stations that serve lobsters so no worry about the long line. Always plenty of food to go around and if you see a line, just walk around to the other station and the buffet area is very big.

Great cruise and people are happy, very clean and new, weather was 85 degrees in GSC, and Nassau, did not get off the ship in port Canaveral since we've been there many times before so we just do the zip line etc...

Casino is smoky and you can smell the smoke inside the elevator on deck 7 and always packed with gamblers young and old. Casino does open when we docked in GSC which is new to me b/c I thought when the ship docked the casino is not suppose to be open.

The Burn the Floor show was great and Rock of Age was also good but long almost 2 hours. Rock of Age is not for young kids and did see a few people left in the middle of the show perhaps do to some sexual acts.

Water in Hot tubs just lukewarm and always crowed unless you go around between 4 to 5 PM.

Walk off is super fast and easy. We choose to walk off at 7:40 AM and was in the parking lot by 7:55 AM.
