Captain's Club Past Passenger Benefits

Captain's Club membership falls into one of three levels. To qualify for enrollment, you must complete one sailing on Celebrity Cruises.

The three tier levels are: Classic Level (after first completed cruise), Select Level (after earning 5 tier credits) and Elite Level (after earning 10 tier credits). When you've earned your fifth and tenth cruise credits, your membership will automatically advance to the Select and Elite Levels, respectively. You can enjoy your new membership benefits on your next sailing on Celebrity Cruises. (Note: Your membership number will remain the same as you advance to the next tier level.)

New For Members

  • A highlight of the onboard experience is likely to be the Captain's Club Celebration. Soon available across the fleet, with the exception of Celebrity Xpedition, all members will be invited to this exclusive event once per sailing. Redesigned to be a highlight of every cruise, the spirited affair will provide the perfect opportunity to meet fellow members, chat with the Captain and senior shipboard officers, experience interactive cooking demonstrations, and enjoy the new "CC Jams" performance by a variety of shipboard musicians.
  • For members interested in a quiet haven of their own, Celebrity is pleased to introduce the Captain's Club Lounge at Michael's Club, exclusively for Elite members and their stateroom/suite companions each morning and early evening. The new Lounge will offer a casual coffeehouse-style experience from 8 am to 10 am, with complimentary espressos, teas and other menu items, a variety of reading materials, and, on Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox, wi-fi access.
  • Every evening from 4 pm to 6 pm, Captain's Club Elite members and their stateroom/suite companions can return to the Lounge to socialize with fellow members, participate in a wine tasting event, or simply relax and enjoy a quiet, complimentary drink before dinner.
  • In recognition of their desire to stay in touch with family and friends while vacationing, Elite members will now receive complimentary, 90-minute Internet packages, while Select members will receive a 25 percent discount. Also within the new program, Captain's Club Select- and Elite-level members can now enjoy new laundry, dry cleaning, and pressing benefits, based on the length of their cruise (laundry and Internet benefits upgrade from tier to tier, and are not cumulative).

Classic Level Benefits (1-4 tier credits)

Access to the loyalty desk and loyalty host; a premium onboard discount booklet; access to the new Captain's Club Celebration event; a complimentary custom air request; pre-cruise specialty restaurant reservations; member reunion cruises; one-category upgrades (when available); and an online newsletter.

Select Member Benefits (5-9 tier credits) includes all benefits of Classic membership, plus:

Priority embarkation, a complimentary wine seminar, priority status to shore excursion waitlist, an invitation to the senior officers' cocktail party, 25% off any Internet package, complimentary pressing of two clothing items, and discounted laundry on cruises of 12 nights or more.

Elite Member Benefits (10 or more tier credits) includes all benefits of Classic & Select membership, plus:

A private shipboard departure lounge with continental breakfast, priority tender service, priority waitlist for dining room seating, elegant tea service, complimentary use of Thalassotherapy pool use on Celebrity Mercury, complimentary access to the Persian Garden (port days only), access to the new Captain's Club Lounge at Michael's Club, 90 free Internet minutes, one free item of dry cleaning, a complimentary bag of laundry (wash, dry, fold) and additional discounted laundry on cruises of 12 nights or more.

Tier Credits

Unlike other cruise line loyalty programs, Captain's Club uses tier credits rather than cruises to determine members' benefits. There are currently up to three ways to earn tier credits on a single cruise. This makes it easier for members, to qualify for higher tiers and receive more exclusive benefits quickly.

For instance, by sailing with Celebrity Cruises, you earn one credit; if the itinerary you choose is 12 nights or longer, you earn an additional credit; and if you book Concierge Class, AquaClass, or Suite accommodations, you earn yet another credit. That's three tier credits on a single cruise.
