If they are coffee making machines like those found in US hotel rooms, you can use them to make tea by boiling the water in them and using a teabag.

On Jade's British Isles cruise last summer I met at least 3 people who had exchanged their coffee machines for a kettle. Don't forget to take some decent tea bags! We just boiled the water in the coffee maker. Happy drinking!

Tell them before you go you want a kettle - they had run out of kettles on our cruise and people were finding it very difficult to make tea with the coffee machines.

Thank you all for your replies. Who do I contact before I go? I have booked through www.CRUISE.co.uk do I ask them or do you know how I contact NCL? Thanks again.

I emailed NCL on their own uk site when I had a problem and they were very responsive - we had booked through www.CRUISE.co.uk and NCL came back to us a lot faster than they did. We love coffee so we were quite happy but for one English couple we met the lack of a kettle was really annoying them. As one other respondent suggested bring your own favourite teabags. We had difficulty getting enough milk - the solution was to have room service breakfast and order 2 cartons(little) of fresh milk. I hate those UHT tiny pots!
