Celebrity Cruises has announced major changes to its Captain’s Club loyalty program, and in my opinion, they are big positives for Celebrity Cruisers.  (Disclosure: I am a Celebrity Captain’s Club Elite member.)  Enhancements include a Captain’s Club Celebration event offering an opportunity for Captain’s Club members to interact with senior officers of the ship, and reportedly will include new things to enjoy such as cooking demonstrations and performances by onboard musicians.

Other enhancements include big discounts on internet access and laundry charges.  But my favorite change is the addition of the “Captain’s Club Lounge” which will offer continental breakfast in the mornings and complimentary cocktails in the evenings.  These services will be offered in Celebrity’s popular Michael’s Club each morning and evening.  I really love the “Diamond Lounge” on Royal Caribbean, and expect a similar experience on Celebrity.  Mrs. MJ on Travel and I enjoy socializing with our fellow experienced cruisers and will look forward to enjoying the new Captain’s Club Lounge on our Celebrity Equinox 11-night Mediterranean cruise next year.

According to Celebrity, more changes will be announced throughout 2009.  You can review complete details of all the benefits available to Captain’s Club members here.
