If you are a New Englander, you would never qualify what they serve as Lobster; it just doesn't match up to the REAL thing.

Well I can't speak for other ships, but my wife and I just sailed on LOS and they served lobster. I usually don't order 2 entrees because one is plenty. Our waiter came to me and said how about another lobster tail. I sheepishly said, why not. In about 2 seconds, he brought me another plate. There have been discussions about alternative items on the menu. I did notice that steak was not an alternative every night, although they did have chicken and fish as options. They did offer steak a couple of nights on this 7 day cruise. By the way, Chops was worth it. Happy cruisin yall. Ricky and Elaine

I'm not from New England, but I was close being in upstate NY and just a reasonable drive from Cape Cod. To me having lobster is the whole thing, red and steamy, sitting on a plate with some lemon slices and melted butter. I am really a claw man if the truth be told.

I loved driving around new england, especially Maine, in my tractor trailer... I would park at a truck stop, call a cab, and have them take me to a good, not opulent, restaurant that serves lobster. Many of the restaurants were veritable mom and pop type restaurants but I was rarely disappointed in the lobster. A couple of them even churned their own butter that was then served melted with the lobster. That made an excellent meal practically sinful. No wonder I gained so much weight when I was travelling.

And let us not forget those great lobster rolls, best served at some roadside shack.

Dave and drlivingston, don't forget those little out of the way (roadside shacks) for the best fried clams and french fries as well when you are in New England!

We're going to have to get all of you up here for a real New England feast. We'll stop at a lobster shack for lunch, and then go to a clam bake in the evening. No bibs required, but we will need lots of napkins.

Only once was I on a ship that offered something similar to this. It was Regal Empress back in 2001. Our port of call that day was Portland, Maine, and we actually saw them load crates of live lobster. Right before dinner, the waiters paraded the lobsters, still live, around on platters. The lobsters were later delivered to our tables, with all the fixin's. Now that was a memorable meal.
