Default Noordam Penthouse Coffee Maker Question

I will be staying in the Penthouse on the Noordam and am wondering if they have a Cappuccino type machine or is it a regular coffee maker in the room?? I love my Cappuccino's, not a regular coffee drinker. If not do they have them in the Neptune lounge? Thanks

I wish I could answer your question but all I know is the last few Penthouse we've stayed in there was no coffee makers.

coffee makers in any penthouse I have seen (mostly cabin crawls) are standard coffee makers - but the coffee they make can be good

definitely the Neptune Lounge coffee makers can do the coffees you want

The last time we stayed in PS, there was no coffee maker.

Neptune Lounge has fabulous coffee machine with espresso, latte, cappucino....

It's a short walk.

Thank you!! My first Holland cruise was 2 years ago and we didn't really use the Neptune Lounge so I couldn't remember if they had one. I'll be making use of it this time!

All the PS's that we have stayed in on HAL have had the regular coffee maker -- several different ships.

It has been either on the countertop or in one of the cabinets.

There coffee machine in the Neptune Lounge is great!!

Can't speak for Noordam, but Eurodam had a regular coffee maker and some coffee from Buekenhorst (sp?) which is the same coffee in the DR and Lido. And best of all, you control how strong or weak it is There was also a full selection of teas in the penthouse and a different kind of tea in several varieties in the Neptune Lounge. Cappuccinos, lattes and espresso are also right down the hall in the Neptune Lounge.

I'll take the Neptune lounge over a butler/valet any day. that's like waiting for room service for me. When I am up, I want my coffee and now

You can pretty much get anything you want on HAL 24/7 - no big deal there. sorry, for me the butler isn't something we fancy or enjoy

Quite a few years ago we had butlers on Princess.

A few were very good. And of course a couple were not -- the female butler was too busy running around chasing the male butlers. The good ones came only we asked for them.
