I was told my unused card can be used on a future cruise. I was told this by the staff at the pursers desk. We caught two coffee cards last May and we only used one of the cards. My husband is not big on specialty coffee so when I asked if I could return the unused card I was told I could keep it and use it on my next princess cruise or they would refund my money. We chose to keep the card and plan on using it on our cruise this coming May.
IF the card has no punches and IF there is no previous voyage info on the back of the card and IF it is not the style not being used on your future voyage then it should be fine for fresh-brewed coffee on a future cruise. However, if any of the previous criteria are met - card previously punched, card wrong style, or card has prior voyage info on the back - then it is only good for punched beverages. It will be good for all of the "snazzy" drinks and also good for fresh-brewed coffee but it will require a punch for any of them.
That's how it is "supposed" to work with Princess. You "may" find a barista that ignores the rules but don't count on it happening. Remember that the fresh-brewed coffee is supposed to be for the card holder only while the punches are free to share with anybody.
