Dress Code and Attire
Three types of clothing are recommended for a Celebrity cruise: casual shipboard attire (day wear), conservative port wear, and eveningwear.

Daywear includes the following: slacks or pants, blouses or shirts, knit tops or polo shirts. A pair of sneakers or rubber-soled shoes (for deck sports), and a swimsuit cover-up (for cool areas on the ship).

Port wear for women includes: a casual dress, skirt and blouse, or pants outfit. Port wear for men includes: casual pants or walking shorts, and polo-type shirts. Comfortable walking shoes are a must.

Eveningwear is broken up by Celebrity Cruises into two main categories, Smart Casual and Above and Formal. Celebrity Cruises classifies Smart Casual and Above as follows: For Ladies: Skirt or pants complemented by sweater or blouse. Gentlemen: Pants (no holes, rips or tears) with sports shirt or sweater. Shirts must have sleeves. T-shirts, swimsuits, robes, bare feet, tank tops, baseball caps and pool wear are not allowed in the main restaurant at any time. Shorts and flip flops are not allowed in the evening hours. Celebrity Cruises classifies Formal attire as follows: For Ladies: Cocktail dress, gown or dressy pantsuit. For Gentlemen: Tuxedo, suit or dinner jacket with slacks.

Children Programs
Celebrity Cruises' youth program is called the X-Club. This program is available year-round and is based out of a section of the ship known as the Fun Factory. The program starts in the Fun Factory at 9 am each day during days at sea, or 30 minutes prior to arrival in port during port days. The Fun Factory closes at 10 pm each night. The X-Club is in a five-tiered age-based system as is as follows:

Todder Time (under 3 years old)
Ship MatesSM (ages 3-6)
Celebrity CadetsSM (ages 7-9)
EnsignsSM (ages 10-12)
Admiral TsSM (ages 13-17)

Children participating in X-Club events must be at least 3 years old and potty trained. However, if your child is under 3 or isn't potty trained you can accompany them to the Fun Factory to take part in activities. On the first day of the cruise there is a Open House event, so that parents can get all the information they want concerning the program. Popular features found in the Fun Factory include various crafts, games, toys, arcade games, music, karaoke, a ball pit and more. There are special teen events and explorations scheduled for the older members of the X-Club.
