Once you have completed your first cruise with Princess Cruises, you will become a Captains Circle member. This number is a bit like the airlines’ frequent flyer memberships that you can get. The more cruises that you do with Princess Cruises the more benefits you are eligible for.
Upon completion of your first cruise, you will become a GOLD member. When you book early for your second cruise you will benefit from additional discount off your cruise fare and be invited to exclusive events during your cruise.
Once you have cruised with Princess Cruises 4 times (or 31-50 cruise days) you will become a RUBY member. As well as all the Gold member benefits you will also receive an automatic upgrade of Princess Vacation Protection when purchased at the standard rate, access to an exclusive shore side phone number for contacting the Captains Circle Help Desk to discuss your cruise history, membership status etc. and 10% discount of the purchase price of your cruise Reflection DVD.
From your sixth cruise (or 51-150 cruise days) with Princess you will become a PLATINUM member. Along with the Gold and Ruby member benefits, you will also enjoy Priority Check-in at embarkation, Platinum Disembarkation Lounge access, complementary Internet package (minutes vary depending on the length of your cruise).
The highest level with Princess Captains Circle is ELITE, which you can achieve on your 16th cruise (or 151+ cruise days). You will receive all the member benefits from the Gold, Ruby and Platinum levels as well as the opportunity to secure your cruise booking prior to the public release of new cruises, priority ship-to-shore tenders without having to queue, complimentary shoe polishing and free laundry service, complimentary mini-bar set up, deluxe canapés selection in your cabin on formal nights, upgrade bathroom amenities and discount at the on-board Princess shops as well as a couple of other exclusive offers.
