Nope. Even that is not allowed. Maybe some leaves and twigs and a lecture about how worthless and evil human beings are.

They conveniently forget that we are part of nature too.

Ah yes LisaP, we New Englanders are truly blessed with the abundance of great, fresh seafood of many varieties; now, I just wish the price were more affordable. Although, the price for hard shell lobsters has finally come down to reasonable levels.

I've always bolstered to others on the quality and quantity of a cruise vacation compared to other vacations. That is how I've gotten 6 ppl to try cruising with us on 3 different cruises. How dare they try to diminish my expectations!
I agree, you don't have to be a hourd about it...just an extra serving once in awhile. I forego the lobster (dislike seafood), so my DH orders an extra.

It's interesting with all the cutbacks, that the Oasis of the Seas will have a dining venue in the Boardwalk area called "Seafood Shack". I wonder what kind of seafood will be served there. It's a casual seafood restaurant, not just a Fish & Chips stand. No doubt it probably will have a surcharge.

I couldn't understand why a Canada and New England cruise on Celebrity did not have Maine Lobster with a stop in Portland and Bar Harbour. They say we'll have local dishes ! Had to get off the ship in run to the nearest place for a Lobster roll and fried clams (the real ones) not the awful strips they serve here in VA. Also had to do an excursion to get to a Losbter bake. In Maine lobster was $6 a pound compare to here it is $14.99 a lb. It is cheaper to get it fed ex'd here, a 3 1/2 pound jumbo..Merry Christmas to me !!

That's why.

So, what kinds of local delicacies did they serve onboard?

Lisa,
We did not see any local seafood, I am from Rhode Island and now live in VA, so you know how much I miss fried clams and lobster !! I did have a cup of clam chowder one night on the ship!
I was thinking we were in Prince Edward Island and was looking for mussels "no deal"! We have decided to drive up to ME next summer and boy I will have fun eating !

Too bad, I have seen in the Maine papers lately that some towns near the ports where they bring in Lobstah have had them for sale fresh or cooked for $3.00 each as the price at the wholesale level has been so bad lately and the cost to go fishing has been out of sight..No breaks for the local (hard working) fishermen.

I think, after reading all this about Lobstah that I will need to get me some. Oh yes, clean them up and then bring on the butter for dipping. Yum Yum !!
