Carnival Cruise Line ups seafood offerings due to high demand
Carnival Cruise Line, one of the largest cruising companies in the world, is expanding its Seafood Shack restaurant concept to seven ships.
Seafood Shack, which offers pay-for seafood cooked to order, was first launched on one ship last May.
“Seafood is popular with all of our guests and the Seafood Shack – which offers menu items like lobster rolls, fried clams and other New England-inspired specialties – fits into our brand strategy of providing our guests with the widest variety of culinary options at sea,” Vance Gulliksen, senior public relations manager for Carnival, told SeafoodSource.
In addition to lobster rolls, Seafood Shack features lobster BLTs, crab cake sliders, fish and chips, and a fried seafood platter with shrimp, clams, calamari, and fish. Diners can also order buckets of fried buffalo shrimp and fried clams. And, for a premium, Carnival guests can order steamed lobster, snow crab, oysters and peel-and-eat shrimp.
Seafood Shack restaurants are now featured aboard Carnival Vista, 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.
