Celebrity just changed their loyalty program from earning status based on number of cruises taken (regardless of length) to a point based system where points are earned based on cruise length and type of cabin booked. The purpose is to reward people who spend more money on the cruise booking. This works for the most part because longer cruises are typically more expensive and higher cabin types are definitely more expensive for a particular cruise. They probably should have added a shipboard spend component to earn points also. Holland America gives extra cruise credits for each $300 of shipboard spend. Stateroom Category Club Points Earned per Night Inside/Ocean View 2 Veranda 3 Concierge Class/AquaClass® 5 Sky, Century or AquaClass Suite 8 Celebrity, Signature or Royal Suite 12 Reflection or Penthouse Suite 18 There will still be ways for people to earn more points than others for the same cruise price paid. For example, a 16 day repositioning cruise in Concierge class vs. an inside/ocean view on a 16 day summer European cruise. That would be 80 vs 32 points earned!
