Open for breakfast and dinner nightly. Lunch will be open only when were at sea. a As you check in on March 11th, you will be given your Seapass Card, which will either be SILVER (Early Dinner Seating) or GOLD (Late Dinner Seating).
Yours election of either Early Dinner Seating or Late Dinner Seating has been made to ensure that each seating is equal in size. Though this is important for the dining room, it is critical in terms of seating for the main shows in the Celebrity Theater. Early Dining opens at 6:00pm and Late Dining opens at 8:30pm.
Dining for each seating will be open seating, meaning that once guests have their full party together, they should proceed to the Cosmopolitan Restaurant on Deck 4 to be seated.
In the spirit of the ’70s Rock & Romance Cruise, guests with smaller parties will be seated with other guests.
Guests who have previously made dining requests with our offices should proceed to the Cosmopolitan Restaurant on Deck 5 with their party, and will be seated at their assigned table.
Please note as both dinner seatings are completely full, we will be unable to accommodate any requests to switch dinner seatings.
If you have special dietary restrictions, please call the StarVista LIVE reservation office at 844-466-7625 by March 3rd so we can inform the ship and accommodate those requests.
CELEBRITY THEATER PERFORMANCES
The major nightly shows will be performed in the Celebrity Theater, which comfortably holds half of our guests. For this reason, every performer will perform twice during the week, sometimes on different days. Admission to these shows will be divided between those holding SILVER Seapass Cards (those who dine at Early Seating and then go to the show) and those holding GOLD Seapass Cards (those who go to the show first and then dine at the Late Seating).
Celebrity Theater Policies and Procedures
To ensure that the entry and seating procedure for the ‘70s Rock & Romance Cruise is both fair and easy, we have adopted the following policies and procedures.
There are 4 entrances to the Celebrity Theater on the Summit. They include the following entry points to the Celebrity Theater: Deck 4 (Portside and Starboard) and Deck 5 (Portside and Starboard).
You must present your Seapass Card to enter the theater. This card also serves as your charge card and room key, so everyone should have that card with them at all times.
Celebrity Summit staff will be posted at every entrance to check your Seapass Card. Guests will select their seats in the Celebrity Theater on a first come, first served basis. StarVista LIVE staff will be located inside the Celebrity Theater to assist with any seating concerns.
Since both the General Admission and Special Assistance Guests are admitted on a first come, first served basis, it is likely that guests will line up at the various entrances in anticipation of the shows. Guests are asked to line up in a respectful manner and each guest may reserve one (1), and only one place in line for your traveling companion. Guests who attempt to “swell the line” or otherwise interfere with the fair and safe entry into the Celebrity Theater may risk forfeiting their right to enter the Celebrity Theater for that show or other shows.
The taking of flash photos and the recording of the shows violates ourcontracts with the performers. Since it is impossible to easily discern what type of equipment can record, no electronic equipment of any kind will be allowed in the Celebrity Theater during the shows.
