Seafood lovers and Carnival fans can rejoice. The very delicious New England themed Seafood Shack that is so popular aboard the new Carnival Vista have been added to seven more ships in the fleet.
Seafood Shack features New England specialties like clam chowder, lobster rolls, crab cake sliders and fried clam strips served by the bucket, with steamed lobster, snow crab, peel-and-eat shrimp and raw oysters sold by the pound.
You’ll find the Seafood Shack up on the Lido deck, vying for attention from other favorite eateries. The only difference is that the Seafood Shack is a pay-to-dine venue. But that shouldn’t detain anyone. Prices are very reasonable.
For example, a lobster roll order is $12, fried seafood platter with fish, shrimp, clams, calamari and fries is $10 and an order of fried clams is only $5.
If you don’t feel like fried food, you can also order steamed lobster, snow crab, and peel and eat shrimp, and oysters, available at market price. The only other place where you’ll find all of these for less is in New England, itself.
Besides Carnival Vista, Seafood Shacks are also now available aboard Carnival Liberty from Port Canaveral, Carnival Glory and Carnival Victory from Miami, Carnival Conquest from Fort Lauderdale, and Carnival Freedom, Carnival Triumph and Carnival Valor from Galveston.
