The old process allows a person to buy a coffee card and get unlimited non speciality coffee for free forever?That is/was the policy. One could get REGULAR coffee for "free" on the cruise when the card is first used. After that first cruise, one would use a punch for a coffee.... regular or specialty.
Seems like a very odd aspect of the program that I am sure was abused by many people. I find it hard to believe that this was the intent of what Princess wanted. Perhaps if so many people did not abuse the old process, Princess would not have felt a need need to change the process.
Perhaps Princess should have limited the free coffee to just the current cruise. As stated above, this is probably the real issue IMO.
So, as far as I recall, the "free" coffee was only available for one cruise. After that, a punch from the card was needed for regular coffee.
