    Coffee card question

    I would not think terms and conditions online would be binding on a physical purchase unless some notice that there were terms and conditions was given.

    Coffee card

    It's possible, but I think it's more likely to be, as has been suggested, the drive to have things electronic, with the bonus it's one less bit of accountable paper to worry about.

    Coffee card

    One mistake and the embarrassment would be considerable, for yourself or whoever you've passed it on to. And no way to tell but the acid test ... but as we have no evidence of any such counterfeiting, I'm afraid you're back on Fantasy Island instead of the Love Boat.

    Coffee card

    If I was going to counterfeit something, it wouldn't be an item that the person who has to validate sees dozens of times every single day.

    Uber - Port Everglades - Holland

    Since the vehicle may not have a front license plate, it's worth knowing that it will very often have a decal with the Uber logo on the windshield on the passenger side. Aside from that, the app will show you in real time where the vehicle is on a map, and will show you photos of the car and the driver. I've used Uber on six continents and it is much better than a taxi. And since the OP is only going as far as the Embassy Suites, you should do better price wise. Don't the taxis at Port Everglades charge a minimum fare of ten bucks or so?

    I would ask one of the cops that are running the traffic where you should wait for Uber.

    Your favorite buffet items

    I prefer the little chocolate croissants on the Lido line, assuming they've been made flaky (some of the bakers seem to make them big, flat and not very good). If you get there early, sometimes they are still a little warm.

    9pm flight home and luggage direct

    Happened to me several time. Once my luggage took the early flight from IAD to LHR on United, but I took the late flight so it was already there (a difference of an hour or so). And then there is the dreaded feeling when the luggage carousel creaks to a halt and yours is not there.

    Elites - New Coffee System on B2B cruises?

    I used up two partially-used old coffee cards on the CB. The barista initially directed me to tap my cruise card, then saw I had a coffee card (once he said "Oh. One of those.") until he got to recognize me. He used a pen to cross out the punches. When I used up a card, he still gave it back, though I immediately threw it away. There were no problems, and they didn't mind giving an extra shot for a single "punch".

    Coffee card question

    No doubt Princess stands with a can of caulk in its hand, waiting to plug any loopholes there. I was recently on the CB for three weeks. Over half the passengers were blue cards who no doubt cluelessly spent money without OBC to defray it. Now, that's the kind of passenger Princess wants! Not us expensive Elite types who don't spend much on board.

    Coffee card question

    They make plenty of profit. They must be enjoying a windfall over the coffee cards and spacing out the Milestone Cruises won't hurt the bottom line either. In that battle for the twenty dollar bill in my wallet, though, I intend to win.

    Coffee card question

    Personally, I consider myself assiduous in following Princess rules for our safety, less so when it's for their profit.

    Elites - New Coffee System on B2B cruises?

    Pure greed, or "revenue factors" is quite enough. Or to give an equally likely theory: maybe Royal Caribbean was sending drones over Princess ships dropping coffee cards a la Operation Bernhard in WWII ...

    Again, more accusations against cruisers unaccompanied by evidence.

    Elites - New Coffee System on B2B cruises?

    I do somewhat resent the implication by some posters that cruisers who sell their cards on eBay or by another means are doing something wrong, though I gather the actual offense has shifted from counterfeiting to something less fraudulent since no evidence of fake coffee cards has been posted. As for options, the fact that the coffee cards no longer in small part defray the cost of cruising does go into my calculations and Princess has lost some sales to me. Add to that the change on milestone cruises from cruise credits to cruise days, and I have nothing planned on Princess until next October. I don't think of those choices as futile in the least. And with the cards I had, I made Princess pay out down to the last skinny caramello latte.
