Default Grand Princess: Coffee & cream

Here aboard the Grand Princess, on day 11 of a 15-day round-trip cruise to Hawaii out of San Francisco, cruise passengers no longer have and decaf-coffee, or cream for their coffee. It is undoubtedly a some issue, but, still annoying given that we still have 5 days at sea. In fact, the decaf coffee ran out on day 9, and cream has been rationed on day 10. Where is the onboard Food & Beverage Director? Anyone from Princess care to comment? Why did someone not re-provision while we were in Hawaii on days 5, 7 or 8?

Anyway, having a wonderful cruise>

Sorry about the coffee and cream...other than that how is the Grand Princess? We will be doing the same cruise out of San Francisco in Oct. Was the seas rough after leaving San Fran? Overall do you like the Grand Princess, this will be our first Princess cruise.

I believe you must be either before or after us as we are doing a 7 day California coastal cruise. Maybe we will not run out of creamer. Lol! I hope you will not either!

Very strange to run out of decaf coffee and cream....I would be pretty upset with no cream, but at least there should be milk to use instead? Sounds like someone dropped the ball..

Maybe something could have gone bad with one of the refrigeration units & it went sour? It would seem strange that they forgot to order it.
