One of our new content initiatives at TPG is to start covering the cruise industry a little bit more. Today we started by covering the basics of the recently revamped Celebrity Cruises Captain’s Club, which includes a tiered membership programs and an elite status program that allows you to achieve perks at each level- and retain them for life (no annoying yearly requalifcation, like airlines and hotels).
