I purchase the coffee card on Princess cruises because I occasionally like a specialty coffee and the coffee card can be used on future cruises if there are still punches available. Most of the time when I order something special at the International Cafe, they rarely punch the card.  Do all the lines have a coffee card and do you buy it?

I think the coffee card is the best deal going on Princess. I always bought the card, basically because I want the brewed coffee. My wife enjoys the fancy coffees so it is a win win for us.

I am elite on Princess so we turn in our mini bar set up for two coffee cards(so i don't have to buy them anymore). I know Holland and NCL do not sell coffee cards.

Good to know...I'm elite on upcoming cruise and will look into doing that!

RCI folds it in to some of the drink packages. For the Ultimate (which is now deluxe) Specialty coffee (not including starbucks) is included. I found out late in the cruise the iced coffees are on deck 5, but they were yummy!

Carnival has them, but I haven't gotten one.

I get the drink card on Princess, so it covers the coffee.

I think most other lines have some program that covers coffee, usually a soft drink sticker.

Not sure about NCL, but we would like to see a coffee card. We would use it a lot.

I'm not a big coffee drinker so I've never purchased the card. It does sound like a good deal.

Not much coffee for us. We do make our own fresh-brewed iced tea in the buffet throughout the day though.Yummy

No NCL does not have one as of a week ago. What I find interesting is specialty coffees are not included in the beverage package. Isn't coffee cheaper than alcohol? Go figure

Congrats on Elite, free laundryBig Smile
