Nothing beats the flavor of a cold-water lobster from the northeast. Given how cheap it has been lately you'd think the cruise lines would scarf it up. Even if they had to freeze it it would still taste better than the lobster they usually serve.

The problem is too many people like the 'idea' of lobster and saying they had it on their cruise but they really don't want the genuine article or do the work necessary to get all the meat and other good stuff out of the shell.

I am a big fan of the late James Beard and he said the same thing about cheese, saying that for a party one should always have a couple of mild cheeses like cheddar and gouda for those who really don't like cheese but want to look like they do, and of course the runny, smelly, moldy stuff for those who love cheese.
