There's no practical way they will eliminate the actual coffee cards. Most people are unwilling to loose their unused punches. People won't buy the perk if it's lost and people won't want that perk loaded on their personal Medallion since it can be shared for specialty coffee.

How is this different from the unlimited soda, alcohol packages? I always thought it should be attached to a cruise card. My wife lost her coffee card mid-cruise in our last cruise, ouch.

The packages end when the cruise ends. Unused punches on coffee cards carry forward to any future cruise until exhausted. They would need a new system/rules for coffee card to expire with a voyage in order to load to cruise card or have another means. Maybe they will do that some day. Like offer a coffee/tea/etc package at a lower price but expires at end of trip. Who knows? YGIAGAM.

Of course it can be shared as long as you're there in person to make the purchase for the other person.
The baristas have already been show the online way it will be done. They simply have a picture of the coffee card on their screen & check off the card as used.
Of course it'll be stored on their computer for future cruises & can't be passed off to anyone else. It really makes it easier for everyone since there's no card to lose or forget for your next cruise.
Its a win win for the passengers & Princess unless you planned to give the card away & puts a stop to selling them on eBay.
