    Teas and coffees on Costa

    Hi,

    Can anyone help with this, probably, silly question. Having never sailed with Costa before, (we are on the Deliziosa in December), we have heard that you have to pay for beverages!
    Does that mean that you cannot get tea or coffee during the day without paying for it.
    On all the other cruise lines we have sailed with, machines have been available in the self service restaurants.

    Any answers please

    On the Splendida tea and coffee were available for most of the day. There is tea time at 4.30/5.00 as well.

      You just pay if you want special coffee.

          Should this be in another thread?

          Surely we've all heard people talking about "the cost of coffee, is too expensive" maybe someone misheard and proclaimed it " The Costa Coffee is too expensive"..... Just a thought.:D .......Neil

            Lynn as everyone has said tea, coffee and water is free in the buffet. however you do not get offered tea or coffee after your meals in MDR but if you want to finish your meal with a coffee or tea just ask the waiter and they will bring you some. if I remember correctly room service is only free for breakfast.
            don't want to work, just want to cruise.

              I was on the SPLENDIDA last week, TEA and COFFEE are free during BREAKFAST and TEA TIME only, else you have to pay for it.

              I was on the COSTA 2 years ago TEA and COFFEE are free all the time.

                Just come back from a Costa cruise, tea and coffee free in the buffet areas for most of the day. If you want coffee after dinner ask your waiter and explain you do not want speciality coffee.

                  You can ask for and get tea/coffee after any meal in MDR.(free)
                  Espresso 1.30 Cappuccino 2 Euros, anywhere else other than buffet

                  Specialist Coffees start at E4.70 X1 package does included some coffees.

                    Having sailed on MSC ships 4 times - where free tea and coffee were available only at specific times - I refused to allow having to pay a minor sum for a hot beverage ruin my cruise.

                      well said - let's be practical. With eur 50 you can have lots of coffees. And anyway on all ships the coffee you pay for is better than the free coffee of the buffet.

                        Indeed. Certainly the cappuccino on MSC was cheap and very good. Whereas the free coffee on Princess and Celebrity ships is horrid.

                              Lynn just remember no question is trivial. all questions are important to the person asking the question. hope you enjoy your cruise with or without coffee. :D
                              don't want to work, just want to cruise.
