It just seemed that with the large number of lobsters reported in the news being purchased by the cruise lines that I figured they were giving the cruisers a treat. How silly of me to presume that the lines were to give the cruisers a break. I can see why you never see anyone order the lobster as many find them intimadating to handle or not knowing how to get at the meat in a boiled lobster. Thats why most people don't mind the southern lobster as it is served baked and the waiters take the meat out of the tail; mot much taste to suit me; I'm spoiled. I prefer to have my lobster at home or at the ocean where I can dig into it and not worry about the mess.
