The cup of Starbucks coffee is a must for dedicated drinkers. So much that many of the most committed caffeine-seekers have been known to look for Starbucks wherever they go, even while on vacation.
Starbucks likely knows this, which is why you can usually find a store of theirs practically everywhere, including unique vacation spots worldwide.
Some, however, are more luxurious and extravagant with shops near former palaces, historical sites and great geographical wonders.
Recently, The Travel wrote about the 10 most extraordinary Starbucks locations worldwide. These notable stores range from the prettiest at Dubai's Ibn Battuta Mall to a place at the CIA headquarters in Langley, VA, where customers won't ask for names.
While each Starbucks location on the list was impressive — like the one in a 90-year-old library in Washington, D.C. located between two continents, at the foot of a volcano, and a particularly stunning location inside a Balinese temple.
That's right you can find Starbucks at several Royal Caribbean cruise ships and guests seem to be thrilled. The cruise line first time partnered with the coffee chain in 2010 and has since added floating spaces to four other vessels.
While Travel names the cruise line as the best place to sip a Starbucks, the honor belongs to one ship in particular: the Wonder of the Seas.
The cruise ship that launched this year, is currently the largest cruise ship at sea, making it essentially a modern Titanic.
The ship has 17 decks, is 1,188 feet long and can accommodate up to 6,000 souls and 2,300 crew members. The most extravagant lodging options are grand but with a few surprises.
The Ultimate Family Suite can accommodate a family of 10 (!) with floor-to-ceiling windows that span multiple stories, and even its own private waterslide, along with other excellent amenities.
The onboard cafe is a best place to sip your cup of joe and enjoy a cold beverage, but if you want the absolute, most unforgettable Starbucks experience, book the Ultimate Family Suite and drink it right there. Sure, it'll cost you upwards of $33,000 but you can't beat the view.
