I am a little confused over what drinks are complementary and where on-board they are available. Am I correct in thinking that tea, coffee, hot chocolate, non-bottled water, fruit juice and lemonade are free?
thanks Janet.

Besides the coffee, hot chocolate, iced tea, sometimes lemonade and the ships fresh water.
On the buffets I believe there are fruit juices and milk available at no cost. Soft drinks are for purchase. These things are also available through room service at any time. On celebrity they give you a flute of champagne on embarkation and on introduction of the crew during the voyage.

Note that tea in the Cova Cafe carries an extra charge. But this is where you will find a wider selection. I am a tea drinker, but I don't recall the varieties of tea available in the buffet and dining room, other than that they were complimentary.

Lisa, Do you know if they charge for espresso beverages in Cova Cafe?

Ken, they charged for espresso as well. (I just asked my husband, who visited this area quite a bit.)

Pawlett,

I am glad to help in any way.

Lisa, Thank you for the answer on espresso and why wouldn't they charge, right?

Hi Chef Ken;
I agree with Dave's comment that he wouldn't mind paying a slightly higher cruise fare in return for free soft drinks--and I would even extend that to include coffee drinks, pastries, wine and caviar bar; it gets a little old having to sign receipts every time you turn around. I'm not talking about a Crystal or Seabourn level of inclusivity, but more than where we're at now.

Hello f-mattox,

I heartily agree, I would rather pay more up front. Cruising to me is leaving a lot of the details of life behind and if that was settled when you purchase your tickets it become less to think about and enhances the enjoyment of the sense of being pampered a bit.

I can't tell you how much I would enjoy the fact that there would be fewer posts on the subject, however there is a certain morbid curiosity about reading the posts that I might miss. Alas we still have the good old, "bringing booze aboard" whine list that will never die.

I thought it was very cheap when the lines stopped serving complimentary soft drinks in the dining rooms and at the buffet meals. And I think espressos and cappucinos should be included too. Sure, if it is a coffee with alcohol in it go ahead and charge me.

It is annoying to go to the buffet to get a burger and fries, and then have to flag down a bar server and wait for them to return just to get a Coke.
