Celebrity Cruises Captains Club.
The once great loyalty program of the once best Premium Cruise Line has expired.
We completed our first Celebrity cruise in December 1996. It did not take many cruises for us to decide Celebrity was indeed the best. (We have now cruised on 14 other lines.) On our 22nd Celebrity cruise we were the top cruisers and were bestowed the honors and special attention we were amazed at. We are now back on the Celebrity Reflection for the 7th time on our 59th cruise with Celebrity. This is the thirteenth wedding anniversary we have celebrated on a Celebrity ship. Five days into the cruise and we have not seen nor have we received a simple welcome message or note from the Captains Club. (Nor from anybody else.) The Captains Club loyalty program has become an advertising gimmick and nothing else. The only clients on a Celebrity ship that really matter now are the “SUITE PEOPLE” and the “HEAVY GAMBLERS. Never could we imagine a Celebrity ship providing “FREE DRINKS” for the gamblers in the casino. If only Royal Caribbean would recognize our Zenith level on their ships. I guess as the saying goes, “all good things must end”.
Entertainment was average but not up to Celebrity's usual standard.
The Lawn Club Grill is a great experience and "La Petite Chef" in the Quisine restaurant is a very unique "show on your plate" with excellent food.
