We found the coffee at Al Bacio to be very good and thanks to our drinks package we really indulged and had about 3-4 a day!

 

My favourite part of the ship for coffee and snacks, but as always on Celebrity, the staff make the area super special. 

As for getting a drink package so as to get coffee, unless you’re a coffee demon, and like the other drinks available on that package,  I find paying separately, then getting the coffee card when it appears a few days into the cruise, saves a lot on the package but then, coffee and tea are my tipple. 😜. Just IMHO.

Does cafe al bacio serve decaf coffee and decaf specialty coffees. I did not see it on the menu. I saw decaf tea.

Al Bacio opens early (I believe at 6am).& stays open until late night.

Here is the menu https://www.celebritycruises.com/gb/things-to-do-onboard/eat-and-drink/bars-and-lounges/al-bacio

Al Bacio does not serve regular or decaf traditional coffee.  The do have decaf espresso based drinks, including Cafe Americano.

They open at 6:00 AM and do have Ice Coffee.

 

I stand corrected.  I forgot about Ice Coffee, probably because I don't drink it.

While I want HOT coffee in the morning, one of my favorite treats on returning after a warm afternoon in port, is an Iglu at Cafe al Bacio . . . Yum!

Yum...

 

Does it have booze in it.   If not I'm sure I could order a Virgin.

What's been your experiences ordering an IGLU ...without the beverage package but with the benefit of Elite Plus? I had mixed answers...some said it was covered and some not??

No alcohol.  And they are yum, but very sweet, on a hot day.

Speaking of afternoon treats...

Are they still serving Affogato's?

We were on the Constellation last fall for a B2B2B, and while I didn't order one, I believe they were on the Cafe al Bacio menu.

That looks incredible.    Is it Espresso poured over ice cream.    I'm gaining weight and salivating already.

IGLUs are great...beware blood sugar spikes!

I always have one as a treat although they offer more flavors

Included in Classic

Yes...  Thanks!

Espresso poured over either gelato or ice-cream & they are amazing!

Affogato literally means "drowned" in Italian. In the dessert world, it usually means gelato with a shot of espresso poured over, but a nice summer alternative is a scoop of lemon sorbet with prosecco poured over. Both are affogati!

Al Bacio is very good coffee.  One of my favorite things is a Latte after dinner and before the evening show.
