This months Celebrity Cruise Line announced major changes to its Captain's Club loyalty club. At the core of the changes is a new system for earning points that puts far more emphasis on the type of cabin a customer books. It looks like this:
2 club points for an inside or ocean view cabin.
3 club points for a veranda.
5 club points for a Concierge or Aqua Class cabin.
8 club points for a ""smaller"" suite (up to Sky Suites).
12 club points for suites larger than Sky Suites up to Royal Suites.
18 club points for Reflection and Penthouse suites.
Members’ previous cruise credits will be automatically converted to club points, and members will retain all of the benefits they earned in the program to date. The overhauled program will have six tiers — two more than before. Below is a brief summary of the amenities at each level.
As a Preview Member, you'll receive complimentary access to the Captain's Club Loyalty Desk service center and a Captain's Club newsletter with the latest program news and information.
