Yes, you get equal recognition in Celebrity's Captain's Club. When I made RCI Diamond I was immediately upgraded to Captain's Club Elite level. I already was a Captain's Club member so I don't know the process for C&A members who aren't CC members. I assume they just activate a membership for you once you book a Celebrity cruise.
I am quite fond of Celebrity. It is a more serene cruise than RCI offers. You need to look at one of the Solstice class ships.

Why would one "need" to try Princess? I have sailed on them 27 times and no more. As the Captained explained to me, since Carnival took them over all that matters is the "bottom line", not service, etc.
The sad thing for baby boomers like myself is that I remember what cruising used to be.Depending on what category your are in on the Soltice, you will have a great cruise experience. However the Italian Steak House did not ive up to it's reputation.
Imagine that. Seabourn is owned by Carnival. By your above comment concerning Princess, I think you are confusing Carnival Cruise Line and Carnival Corp and Plc. Princess and Seabourn both are owned by Carnival Corp and Plc.
I've never sailed on a Princess ship, but I can't imagine it would any Princess ship could match up to Celebrity's Solstice class ships. Then again, I've never sailed on one of those either. As a Diamond Plus member I should get all the perks if I ever sail on a Celebrity ship. I'm still considering a Princess cruise in the far off future. My last cruise on the Radiance was a good reminder why I keep sailing on Royal Caribbean.
