A new Celebrity Cruises credit card in 2013?

Postby fedupwithfinance » Thu Jul 18, 2013 2:50 pm

Back when it was thru Bank of America, I had a Celebrity Cruise Visa card that gave amazing rewards. You could use your points for getting free stateroom upgrades and companion fares and it had a personal concierge hotline to call 24/7 to get help. The bank then cancelled the card on me two years ago.

Yet again I am the victim of a cancellation because my current card from Citizens is being discontinued too! Now I need to get a replacement and when I called to ask if another Celebrity Cruise credit card would come out he couldn't tell me. What does that mean he can't tell me? Do think it is in the works behind the scenes and coming soon?

Full disclosure, I have never taken a cruise in my life and I don't want to after hearing all the horror stories. Even without those I am still not sure if sitting on a ship for 7 days would be for me because I like doing physical activities. The concept of binging on a buffett 3x a day and sitting by a pool would be torture for me. With that rant out of the way, why do you want a credit card from Celebrity cruises over a travel card without restrictions? When you had their card you talk about the great awards but did you do a calculation to see how much you were spending to earn those things, and what percentage that equaled on your spending?

I would guess he can't tell you because he doesn't know.

I agree with the suggestion why not get a more generic travel card that won't get cancelled on you?
