Of course, if a CM was taking a lot of time to get to know us and/or going above and beyond I would most definitely acknowledge that with an additional tip but if you're just popping into Cove Cafe for a specialty coffee there's no expectation from the CM for extra, right? (This goes for anywhere else onboard as well.) We never make it to any adult-exclusive areas but our next cruise is a 7-nighter and I would love to pop in briefly for a frappe or yummy martini.
The 15% auto tip on your tab is split among the the bartenders and servers outside of the restaurants. If you add a tip to your bill on top of the 15% it goes to that CM who served you.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention! We drink a lot of coffee (probably too much! ) Love the idea of buying the mug. Do you just go to the cove to buy it that first day? Thank you!

Apparently, at the end of your cruise you can exchange your mug for a token and then on your next cruise you can get your mug back again to save you transporting it back and forth.

"Guests who purchase a specialty coffee mug—available in Cove Café and other shops onboard—are entitled to a complimentary coffee in Cove Café. Snacks are complimentary."


Does anyone know what this mug is and how it works? I've never seen or heard anything of it until I read this.
Hmm, reading a few other threads it seems if you buy a certain coffee mug from a shop on the ship, you get one free coffee that you can redeem at cove cafe. So this may not be a 'special' cove cafe mug.

It's cute!! I would totally get one if it came with free coffee refills! I wonder if it is only coffee or if you can get espresso in it too?

I am not a coffee drinker, but I am a tea drinker, and I wonder if there is any option for tea refills in the travel mug.

I got a mug on the Alaska cruise also. It was the last Alaska cruise in 2011 and they were selling them 2 for 1 so my friend got one too. I'm totally unaware of anything about free refills and we were not offered anything free except the extra mug. Neither of us drinks coffee though. I did get some coffee in mine once but I asked them to put booze in it, so it wasn't free. We never even asked if we could have free tea in them.

I've never seen mugs for sale in the Cove on any other cruise and I've taken 11 of them.

If the mug is still offered you are entitled to ONE hot, non-alcoholic beverage with the purchase of the mug. I'm not sure if it's a specialty beverage or a regular beverage that is served there.

I also bought the AK mug in 2011. No mug that Cove Cafe has sold has come with free refills.
One of the mugs I bought on that cruise I got a spiked hot chocolate, so you didn't have to get coffee.

I really wanted a coffee mug on our cruise but couldn't find one that I liked. I ended up buying one from the Disney Store online. Here's the picture: (They also sell this one in red).


They do sell out quickly, so keep checking back if they are out

They also had this cute gadget in the Cove Cafe that would make a cute Mickey head on the top of my latte. I really wanted one, but they didn't sell them and had no information on where I could order one

We bought this as well, and was very disappointed that it is too tall to fit under our Keurig even after removing the drip tray.
