The coffee served by the cruise lines is made from coffee syrup and is almost as nasty as the powered crud sold in the grocery. So, I would like to take along a small travel type coffee maker or a small 4 cupper. I'm wondering, though, about electrical overload as these units are generally 600-700 watts. I really would hate to cause any damage to the ship or inconvenience to my fellow cruisers.
Looking forward to any and all advice, alternatives, etc.
We'll be aboard the Zaandam to Hawaii and, I sincerely hope, back. Normally we book a verandah, but the couple we've always cruised with wants to try a large ocean view and my Boss (She who must be obeyed ) insists we do the same. Since an ocean view cabin is one step up from steerage, I doubt there'll be courtesy coffeemakers.
Buy a small two cup coffee press and just get some hot water. It is not powered by any electricity and won't be confiscated. They aren't expensive either. Also, can't you buy packets of coffee grounds in teabag like packets?...
I can't drink coffee (well after trying it for a while it told me it didn't like me), besides, it tastes awful unless you add four or five packets of sugar to take away that bitter taste...

Thanks, misguidedangel, an excellent suggestion. The wife doesn't care for coffee, either, but she always orders hot tea from room service. I've made her tea for her and I know the hot water is hot enough for a coffee press.
