I'm not a coffee drinker but my hubby said the same about the coffee being way too strong & bitter.

I did hear from the cruise director though that they are considering finding a different supplier for the Australian cruises, so there is hope.

avaiable at coles/woolworths etc. come in a couple of strengths.
Just bought a 28 pack of Robert Timms (Italian Espresso) from Woolies at lunch time & drinking a sample cup as I type... Not too bad at all..

Might need to grab another pack before we go next week as I seem to be liking it more than the normal Nescafe instant I have at home

Thanks for the tip..

Do you think USA customs would allow these coffee sachets or bags in our checked luggage? Anyone ever taken any overseas?
Yes we took our own tea & coffee to US last year. We had it in checked bags no problems, just always declare anything you have.

Have to agree with Barry, the coffee on VOS was terrible, so terrible it sent my husband to drinking tea until we could buy some in Dunedin, then he was a happy man. We had no problems bringing in to Sydney what was left. The coffee was in fact the only thing we didnt like about VOS.
