I don't drink it but everyone I travel with generally has problems with the coffee on RCL. Just curious what you think. ANyone like it?

I'm spoiled, I like my Dunkin Donuts coffee.

The coffee on the ships and in most regular restaurants I've been on are not that great. I just grin and bear it. I can't remember the last time I've had a good cup of coffee, even in expensive restaurants.

I bring my own hazelnut creamers, the non dairy ones. It's makes the coffee a little better.

Just got off Monarch and was on Majesty last Jan. RCCL uses "Seattle's Best" coffee and I think it is the worst coffee. I just give up coffee while on a cruise. Coffee on board is VERY strong, and tastes like it is hours old. Considering taking a small coffee maker to use in the cabin on the next cruise in Jan.

Your best chance for a decent coffee is in the dining room. Forget the Lido deck stuff.

I wonder if the strong Coffee is a European thing. They seem to have decent beans and decent machinery. WHy does it taste soo bad? Weird!

I think...please correct me if wrong....the coffee we get from room service is made early morning in a HUGE pot/container and of course the longer it sits under heat, the worst it will taste. I have found room service coffee to be the worst on ship. Taking my own this coming cruise.

YIKES! We are Starbuck's fanatics & always find that coffee everywhere just dsnt
measure up so we always bring our own when we travel. HOWEVER, we thought that Seattle's Best was supposed to be very close to Starbuck's & were planning not to bring our coffee....how would we prepare it in our room,,bring a coffee pot too? We find Dunkin Donuts coffee way too weak for us. Any other Starbuck's drinkers out there ?

On occassion I use the single servings by Folger's which come in tea bags. It works great and all you need is hot water.

I'm from the Northwest and definitely a Starbucks fanatic. I'm thinking of taking my own when I sail the Radiance in January. I like it strong. I always found the coffee like tea water on my past cruises. Guess RCI can't please everyone!
