Default Grand Princess - Coffee Bar?

Can anyone tell me if there is a coffee bar on the Grand and if so which deck is it located on?

Thanks

I'm not a coffee drinker but there seemed to be a lot of coffee drinkers in the vicinity of the Promenade Lounge on deck 7.

The bar just forward of the midship elevators on the starboard side of the ship has a pot of brewed coffee at all times, and the bar in the casino has it in the mornings. Real brewed coffee, made with real grounds. (I now hear that it is not free anymore.) The other alternative is to purchase espresso or cappuccino ($1.50 and $1.75) at any of the bars onboard.

The bars at the top & bottom of the attrium both sold various fresh coffees - with or without alcohol.

We bought the coffee cards which meant that we got something like 15 coffees for the price of twelve, which worked out about $2.00 a time. The bar waiters in the piano bar were very entertaining, as can be the resident entertainer.

Hope you have a great time.

IIRC, the card is only good for speciality drinks.

Doesn't make sense that they charge for coffee.

The free stuff is made from coffee starter and not fresh beans.
