I much pefer the crab to the lobster
Me too. I'd like to see it offered, in the shell, but on an informal night for obvious reasons. Wouldn't it be cool to go to dinner on a cruise ship and see the table covered with newspaper with picks and mallets sitting there? The waiter then brings a steaming pot out and dumps a pile of crabs, potatoes, and corn on the table and everyone digs in.

Actually, while this would not work on a ship, we went to a cantina in Cozumel that had this set up (now that part that obviously wouldn't work): and you threw your debris over your shoulder where a very helpful and hungry Codimundae (no idea how to spell it--it looked a lot like a long nosed racoon) ate it. Virtually no waste or clean up!

They ate the shells? Now that is a high fiber diet!

Given the quality of lobster now served on most cruise ships, the shell might be the best part.

Sorry -- this New Englander couldn't resist.

Lawd! Don't get me going on this! It is one of my favorite dinners. The most fun part is catching them. Then my mom turns her head when I put them in the pot, she won't have anything to do with it. We make a big mess on the picnic table with newspapers. She is getting pretty good at making drawn butter though.

This is the weekend I look forward to every spring. They should have the option of a bucket of crabs!

I'd like to see sweetbreads on the menu. Celebrity is the only line where I've been able to get them. I'm not much for the guts and hooves of animals but I make an exception for sweetbreads.

(sweetbreads are the thymus glands from cattle, pigs, or sheep, with the best being from veal calves)

Dave, my husband loves sweetbreads also. He most recently had them on our Celebrity Century cruise last year. They were offered as an appetizer on one of the formal nights. He tells me they were batter-fried, and very good.
