Elite

We hit elite after our most recent cruise.  DW and I celebrated attaining such a level of status that we have obtained what we once thought out of reach: a free bag of laundry.

 

As near as I can tell, that precious bag of laundry and one port-day access to Persian Garden is the entirety of the practical benefits we found at the end of the rainbow.

Well, 10% off if you have AI and want to upgrade your beverage package, or a few drinks on your card if you don’t have AI 😃

Disagree. If you don't have the AI the perks/benefits are still nice. We like the priority tendering when we have intinaries that require a tender.

I'll continue to upgrade in person to put the extra $$ in the bartender's pocket.

 

I've never seen a list of 'Elite Drinks'.  Is there one?

Pretty much. And no Persian Garden on e-class ships.

E-class is off our radar, so that's fine.   I suppose DW may like that on a port day, though I think she's averaged less than 1x per cruise on those times we've been in Aqua.

Thus the 'practical benefit' in my comment.  Sailing without AI is highly unlikely (for us).  Tendering is Belize and Grand Cayman?  Can't think of any others off hand.

Well, there are occasional offers that are not part of the standard benefits, such as this current offer:

as one of our valued Captain’s Club members in the Elite tier or above, you’ll save an additional $1,500 on suites and $1,000 on ocean view staterooms when you book your Galapagos vacation by May 31, 2022.

 

That might be a practical, if somewhat limited, benefit.

We consider the perks/benefits practical. If AI sticks around in the future. If not there is still the CC internet minutes, unlimited CC HH drinks loaded on your SeaPass card. Not sure when or if  the evening CC HH will start back up. Possibly if the AI goes away.

 

East coast, NE/Canada cruises. West coast Pacific Coastal/ Canada cruises comes to mind. Still a great perk/benefit no matter the intinaries if tendering is required. No tickets, no waiting in line. Just show up at the designated time and place and escorted to the tender by the CC host. Great perk/benefit.

Those discounts can add up.  Last 7 N cruise wi-fi upgrade saved us $71.40, drink pkg  upgrade $17.  I had a facial the discount saved $26,  DH's massage was reduced by $29.  We splurged on a very nice bottle of Caymus saving about $28.  

The CC benefits saved up about $175, works for us.

Are you Elite Plus?  I was not aware of any discount on spa services for us mere Elites.

I guess I was not looking at the complete list of benefits.  I now see that there is a 10% Elite spa discount.

And as you know, not every perk/benefit is published on Celebrity's website.

Yes we are, however the Multi Use Spa credit is 15% for Elite also.  If you check the link in post #2 and go to the 2nd page there is a detailed list of the CC benefits.

I don't use the spa (except for the free Persian Garden day, when available), drink wine, or need "premium" drinks. 😉

The Elite Coffee House Style breakfast in Tuscan is worth having - very relaxed away from the crowds in the buffet and great views over the stern. 

Just imagine you now only need another 450 points to reach Elite + where you will get a second free bag of laundry each.

We were told by the Captain’s Club host that there are some Premium drinks on the Elite list, served between 5-7pm.

Does the host consider Bud Light a Premium drink?
