Default Princess v. Celebrity Coffee

Can anyone comment on the difference between coffee on Princess and Celebrity? Princess is pretty bad.

There is an International Law that states that cruise ship coffee MUST BE BAD. In actuality one big 25,000 gallon pot is brewed while embarking passengers board. They never empty out the stale stuff from the previous cruise, just add more to it each week.
Cruise ship coffee is universally bad for two reasons. First, so you will drink less and save the ship money. Second, so you will spend money on the good stuff
at the on board premium coffee shop. I think the folks at Cova Coffee actually pay Celebrity to pour bad coffee elsewhere on the ship so you will come to the Cova Coffee shop and buy coffee for $2.95 a cup.
Yes, Celebrity's coffee is every bit a bad as Princess . In all seriousness, given the volume of coffee served, they do not have time to brew coffee . Most ships actually serve cofffee made from a liquid concentrate so coffee can be made in huge quantities very quickly by adding hot water. That is why it tastes universally bad.

I agree Princess makes the worse coffee on the planet. We are bringing our own coffee maker on our next cruise...

Celebrity makes the worst coffee. Worse than Princess.

On either line, if you order it from some of the bars, it is fresh brewed.
