Add old bay seasoning to a large pot of boiling water. Add potatoes (cut them in half if they are too large), corn and sausage; boil for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add shrimp and cook until shrimp are pink, 3 to 5 minutes.
Transfer stew with slotted spoon to individual bowls and pass cocktail sauce if desired.
