Default Coffee Card on Princess

Hi,

Does anybody know anything about the coffee card or know how I an get one? I'm leaving on the Princess Caribbean next week, and didn't know that there even was a coffee card available. Does anybody have any information, or a coffee card?

Thanks!

It's been awhile since we purchased one since they never expire and you get unlimited brewed coffee, but I believe it was around $27 which included 15 specialty coffee punchouts for expresso, latte, etc.

Since the served coffee on the ship is from a syrup, it tends to be a little weak to my taste and without a lot of character. If you like a good coffee and the occassional "spirited" blend then do purchase the card, and as I mentioned it is good until you have all the punches used up for the special coffees only.

The coffee card is $24 plus tip. You buy them where ever the specialty coffees are sold.

It is good for the specialty coffees. Most require 1 punch, doubles sometimes require 2. The card has 15 punches.

In addition, as long as there is at least one punch left n the card, you get unlimited brewed coffee (not the syrup stuff), tea and hot chocolate.

Well, why skirt the issue. I like to be exact, so that's why I win so many luggage tags.

It's about $27 and change, and I don't think tips are included. If your barista does a good job, you can always tip him/her extra in cash, which is what we did.

It's more worth it to buy the specialty coffees that cost $3.50 with the coffee card - if you think about it, if you buy 15 specialty coffees worth $3.50, that's equivalent to $53 (approx.) when the coffee card costs $27.60. Just a thought. I noticed that the coffee card isn't highly advertised, unlike the pop packages, and that may be the reason why. Mind you, now that I've said this I think Princess may change the rules, haha!

You can purchase it at the stations where the pop packages are sold.

You buy the coffee card on the ship, where ever the high end coffees are sold.

You are now assuming that every ship has an IC. (I know, I know, he's on the CB)
