I have been on 54+ cruise and up until my last cruise was never invited to dine at the Captain's Table.  My last cruise was a World Cruise and all those traveling the entire journey we re invited to dine with the Captain in a specialty restaurant.  On our night there were about 35 passenger in the restaurant but only a few of us actually sat in a separate room with the Captain, his wife and a couple of Senior Officers.  We were lucky I guess. None of us were famous or important but we were regular cruisers with the cruiseline.

 

So how can you, too, get invited.  Here's a link with some suggestions.
