We're not aware of the coffee problems you mention, but we will ask those which have taken the cruise (after we review some of our many e-mails with them). Note that the Caribbean & Panama Canal cruises on the Lirica have not been started yet & could be handled differently, as well. Our January cruise will have Big Band music. We have never been on a cruise which only has what you call Disco music. We'll e-mail you the other info.
