You're welcome to eat mine.....Yuckkkk....I have no want for that pre-frozen warm water poor substitute.Give me a fresh Maine lobster or nothin' at all. I would just say be respectful and I would imagine they would supply a reasonable amount.

It's disney you can have anything you want!

If you want more you can gladly have more & they will not make you feel like you are being greedy! On our first cruise we were encouraged by our wait staff to have as much as of whatever we wanted.

It isn't Maine lobster like the other post mentioned. It wasn't what I was used to either & wasn't a huge fan of it. I'm sure it has a lot to do what area you live in & what you are used to.

Going on our first cruise in a few weeks - Magic 8 night Bahamas. I love lobster and seafood in general. I loked at the menu's for each of the restaurants but I didn't see lobster listed as a dinner option. I've heard the menu changes a few times during the cruise. For example on pirate night the food is supposed to be different.

I would be interested to know if lobster is offered, when and if I can have more than one too. So yummy.

The fish is usually shrimp, and varities of white fish like haddock, cod, etc as well as crab cakes and scallops usually is some kind of a dish. We eat fish mostly and have to say the fish is usually very good and a nice variety. They usually have a "lobster" night and the waiters will definately let you know when it will be. Pirate night you receive a "Pirate menu" that has a special take on dishes and you can keep the menu. The waitstaff dresses up in garb as well as many passengers. Usually Capt. Hook and Shmeed shows up for a walk around and pictures.Yes you can have as much as you wish for everything. Have a wonderful cruise.

When my brother went on his honeymoon on the Wonder in April, he ordered lobster. His waiter told him that he would want two. My brother thought he was joking and ordered two. Sure enough, two lobsters arrived, and my brother ate them both. So, I know you can get at least two and hopefully more if it's what you're really looking forward having on the ship.

Yes! Our Dining Room Host Guy even brought an extra lobster plate to the table about half way through our meal. They also shell it for you (I'm sure there's a fancy schmancy name for this but I don't know it). I'm not much of a lobster fan and ordered something different, but was so happy they brought it - I thought it was great (but then again, I've never had Maine Lobster, so there's that).
On a different night, I couldn't decide what I wanted to eat for the main course and he just brought me both. It was AWESOME!! One was a seafood pasta and one was a steak so I just had my own little version of Surf-n-Turf.

There were other dinners that they brought us extra dessert (baked alaska night) or an extra appetizer..... it seemed to be the foods that they were super proud of, but I'm sure you can have seconds of whatever you want. They do get a little antsy about clearing the dining room to prep for second seating but we were never rushed or pressured. I hope you have a Magical time!!

ps. Our cruise was the 6 night out of Galveston on the Magic last week, and like the poster above - Lobster was served on the Captain's Gala night.

Yes, but the night before they serve the lobster they will ask you how many you want. They are BIG! Our server convinced my husband to only reserve two and he was right. My husband was full and didn't need a third. They were yummy!

I've had it twice on the Wonder and while it was something special that I don't get at home due to the cost of it where I live, it wasn't spectacular in flavor and texture. At least not enough for me to want to have 2.
What I do love to do though is order the steak entree and also the lobster entree. That gives me my own surf and turf and I really enjoy that mix myself. If you don't think you can eat 2 full entrees, order the full entree of the one with the side that looks more appealing to you and then order just the main (steak or lobster tail) of the second.
I would personally always do this on Captain's Night and plan to this coming February

Fresh Maine Lobster cooked correctly can be sublime. The frozen rock "lobsters" that Disney overcooks are just nasty. No flavor and very tough. No thanks.

Agree! I grew up in RI so we used to get lobster off the boats. I LOVE lobster and looked forward to it on our 8 night. So much that I ordered two. It was the worst lobster I have ever had in my entire life and on top of it, it wasn't served with butter, a baked potato and corn lol. I wish I didn't order it and know better for the next time.

I don't recall ever seeing a lobster night on board Disney in 7 cruises but I don't/can't eat lobster so I probably wouldn't have noted it. However, on our last cruise one couple at our table ordered 3 appetizers each, an entree and two desserts and the server never even blinked an eye.

Lobster tail is served on 7 night cruises and is served only on Captain's Gala night. It is not available on 3 or 4 night cruises.
