I think it depends on just how much extra the difference is. Seems to me that CC used to be an extra $300 to $400 p.p. which I wouldn't pay. But we paid $150 p.p. on our recent Mercury cruise and for us it was worth every penny! The flowers,appetizers (not really all that bad
)bathroom amenities,huge balcony. But the best was priority debarkation-we were among the first off. Or was that a Captain Clubs perk? I'm confused.
