I normally use points for OBC or for statement credits. You could either get OBC on your SeaPass account. You could also redeem points for statement credits but only after your final payment.

I normally use points as a statement credit. I last used 20000 points and had $200 credited as a statement credit to my card. This happened after the final payment. It was all done online and it was easy to do. On the celebrity home page, www.celebritycruises.com/celebrity-cruise-credit-card, click "already a card holder", then on the next page just click "redeem my cruise rewards" and it is really easy from there.

I noticed that they have changed the program recently. It used to be that when you have say 150,000 or 200,000 points, you can redeem for a free cruise for up to a certain value. Like for 200,000 points, it used to be that you can redeem for a cruise of up to $4000. Now, that free cruise option is gone. For say 200,000 points, you can redeem for a discount for up to $3000.

Has anyone actually used their points to redeem for a cruise. I was looking at the reward charts and getting prices for those cruises that they list. The points required is way more than the price (excluding taxes since points cannot redeem the tax portion). It just looks like redeeming points for the price of the cruise or OBO seems to be the best use.

Celebrity is one of my favorite cruises and I decided to get this card to earn more points. I use the points to redeem for statement credits. I prefer it this way. But you have to have made your final payment before you could use it this way. If not, then you could redeem for OBO.

I sail with Celebrity once a year. I decided to get this card since I think I will be doing it year after year. I also applied because I wanted to get the $300 discount you can get if you spend $5000 within 60 days. I also like the fact that there is no foreign transaction fee on the card so I could use this on my next European cruise. You can also get 10% discount on premium beverage package and private journeys.

After cruising with Celebrity for 3 years, we finally decided to get this card. I normally use the points to take the balance off the cruise. For example, I have used 20,000 to get $200 off for my most recent Reflection cruise. You can also use points to take balance off OBO but I use them to reduce cruise fare.

We've been retired for 2 years now and it looks like Celebrity Cruise is going to be our thing. I put all our expenses on the card and pay it off in full every month. I was able to us 50,000 points for $500 off our latest cruise.

I actually like both Celebrity and Royal Caribbean so this card works perfectly for me. I use the points to get discount off cruise since it is difficult to find the price of a cruise (excluding taxes) that match the points required. I last used my points to get a $450 discount on a cruise which I booked last minute and had to pay in full on the final payment date. Have not used it for OBO yet.

Just some advice here on booking. I find that it is best to book your cruise with BOA travel. You could book with the cruise but would have to order the certificate and turn it in. The best bang for the buck is to get a discount. I have given up trying to book a specific cruise on the MyCruiseRewards with points because you always need way more points than the price of the cruise. Remember that the points can never be used and cover the taxes.

The best way to use this card is also to put all your spending on this card. If you are like me a take a couple of cruises a year, then you will save at least a few hundred dollars.

I love my celebrity cruise card. You can use the points on celebrity, royal caribbean and azamara. I have used the points for cruise discounts and OBO as well. For your cruise payments, simply use the card and get 2X. Then just apply the points you have.

If you take a couple of cruises each year, it is very easy to earn points. 2X on cruise payments plus the 10,000 anniversary bonus if you spend $10,000.

I have this card and I love it. The one I have is the $69 annual fee version (which has a couple of perks and bonus that the no annual fee version does not have).

Having said that, I recently got a Barclays Arrival and you can earn 2X on everything. It has an annual fee but so does this card. I find that I am earning more points with the Barclaycard than this card and I think I will eventually just close this card and use the Arrival card.
