Seafood Shack, which debuted on Carnival Vista in 2016, features an array of from-the-sea menu items and fresh fish customized to passengers' liking. Located on the lido deck, Seafood Shack is a great central dining option for those not wanting to venture far from the pool.
Reminiscent of a New England-style land-based venue, Carnival's Seafood Shack is a walk-up counter that's equal parts industrial and nautical, with rustic woods meeting granite countertops and stainless steel food prep areas. An adjacent dining area offers tables, faux wicker chairs, brightly colored booths and plentiful ocean views.
There's no waiter service, so you'll have to place your own order. Because of its bustling location, the Seafood Shack isn't the best place for a quiet meal.
Seafood Shack is open for lunch and dinner. The small menu includes clam chowder; lobster BLTs; crabcake sliders; steamed lobster, crab, shrimp or oysters by the pound; and buckets of fried buffalo shrimp or clam strips. In addition, passengers can order fresh fish purchased in ports on each itinerary and either eat it immediately or have it sent to any restaurant onboard at a later time (during regular dining hours), prepared in any way they choose.
Please note that
; actual menus vary by ship and sailing.
Seafood Shack's menu is priced a la carte, with the least expensive item (New England clam chowder in a bread bowl) starting at $4. The most pricy selections are lobster, crap, shrimp and oysters by the pound, which are set at market price.
