The excellence of Celebrity's existing cruise product continues with the cruise line's Solstice-class ships, which embody even greater technical achievement and meaningful innovation, while retaining the distinctive style, sophistication and service elements that have become the hallmark of a Celebrity cruise.
Celebrity continues to reap stellar rewards - including sweeping Conde Nast Traveler's "World's Greatest Ships" readers' survey (February 2003), which deemed seven Celebrity ships among the top 10 large ships. The line will continue to grow its customer base by offering the ultimate premium cruise experience with a taste of luxury across its 10-ship fleet-while also seeking innovative and unexpected ways to treat guests famously.
Celebrity's Captain's Club premier recognition and rewards program, with exclusive benefits for each membership tier, is designed to make you the center of their attention. It’s all part of Celebrity's effort to match their highest level of onboard design with the highest level of recognition.
Classic Member Benefits
As a Classic member, you'll receive complimentary access to Celebrity's Captain's Club Celebration event. You'll also enjoy great ways to save with exclusive onboard premium offers.
Select Member Benefits
As a Select member, you'll enjoy all the benefits of a Classic member, plus discounted Internet and laundry service specials.
Elite Member Benefits
Celebrity's Elite members know that loyalty yields great rewards, including complimentary Internet and laundry services, as well as access to the Captain's Club lounge.
Unlike other cruise loyalty programs, the Captain's Club uses tier credits rather than cruises to determine your benefits. Celebrity currently offers 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.
Benefits are exclusive to sailings on Celebrity Cruises® (Excluding Celebrity Xpedition®)
Tier credits are awarded upon completion of each sailing
