Diamonds on Celebrity question...........

Have any Diamond members who have been on Celebrity really noticed many benefits?  When I crunch the benefits, it appears you get free drinks between 5 and 7 and a few discounts.  It doesn't seem like a lot.  Anyone with real experiences with this?

The Captains Club event for higher tier levels (Elite and above) offers  a limited drink menu during specific hours, so not really a benefit we even partake; hence,  we always book drinks as part of an inclusive package, so not been an issue.  We do  like the complimentary laundry service on the 7 night or longer trips.   With 2 people, each Diamond/Elite, you get a bag each after the 3rd night.

There are so many diamond/elites on X now that it has pretty much become meaningless. We were on X three times this year. A 7 nighter, a 10 nighter and 12 nighter. Had drinks as part of our inclusive package so the happy hour drinks meant nothing and they didn't serve appetizers on any of the cruises.

We did get the laundry done on our 12 nighter, but not on the other two.  We did go to the Captain's party fpr elite and up on one of the cruises but it was so packed you could hardly move. We skipped it on the other two.

I was on X a couple months ago. 

Benefits I found were:

Free laundry 

Free scoop of Gelato 

Discount on upgraded internet if you call about it before you cruise 

When I asked about a Discount for specialty dining on the first night they gave me 10% off and said it as due to my status

Is the Elite drinks benefit just for happy hour or can it be used outside of 5-7 pm?

Also, can it be used in the MDR during this time?

Elite drinks between 5-7 only in any of the lounges, not MDR.  But unlike Diamond/+ vouchers you can drink as many as you can hold during 5-7 if you can find a waiter, barman to serve them to you..

Sorry slight hijack;

May I ask how does D+ on Royal translate to Celebrity? I was up super early to possibly book the Icon for June 2024 but she wasn't for me. Before anyone comes for me it's not the "family focus" that was the problem. It was just so much going on, so many colors, so many other passengers. Just way to much "stimulation?" for lack of a better description. I'm super happy for everyone of you all who are going to enjoy her, I know me and I would not. Such a personal thing, it's nice Royal really seemed to hit this one out of the park, kind of bringing the theme park frenzy to the ship. I also wasn't super excited about the ho hum Itineraries. I digress, seriously researching Celebrity now (no not Virgin, seems like an adult themed theme park) & am looking for insights for a family of 3. Thanks so much!

D, D+ and Pinnacle on Royal will all match to Elite on Celebrity (which roughly equivalent to Diamond on Royal, but with different benefits)

Also, Elite, Elite Plus, and Zenith on Celebrity all match to Diamond on Royal.

@Neesa We booked our first Celebrity cruise last year after turning Diamond on Royal.  As I recall, Celebrity did the match without me even asking. Also, once you start getting the X emails, you will get a chance to add to your X points using their “Power Up Points.” It’s usually a webinar to watch or taking a survey or quiz about info they’ve sent out.  Fairly easy and I’ve added 10 or 15 points that way.

Is there a website to check your celerity points/past sailings?

You just sign in on the Celebrity website and go to your profile.  If you don't have a Celebrity sign in, you'll need to create one and this can be done online.  If you have past cruises that aren't showing, you should call in to get those added to your point total.
