Celebrity Cruises' Captain’s Club program underwent a redesign with features that guests can experience on sailings this month. Additional features will also be presented throughout the year.
New features include The Captain’s Club Celebration, a once-per-sailing event for members only that provides a chance to socialize with other members and senior shipboard officers. This package also includes cooking demonstrations and a new “CC Jams” performance by shipboard musicians.
The newly added Captain’s Club Lounge at Michael’s Club is for Elite members and their cabin companions. The new lounge, which is open during the morning and early evening, will offer a coffeehouse-style ambiance from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. with complimentary espressos, teas, and other menu items as well as reading materials. On Celebrity Solstice and Celebrity Equinox, guests can enjoy wi-fi access. Additionally, every evening from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Captain’s Club Elite members and their cabin companions can visit the lounge to participate in a wine tasting event or enjoy a drink before dinner.
The improved Internet benefits allow Elite members to receive complimentary, 90-minute Internet packages, while Select members receive a 25 percent discount.
