Celebrity Summit Family
You'll never see the kids! The Fun Factory offers a puzzle wall, play area, computer games section, movie room and crafts area, plus a broadcast room and video game arcade. Tower is Celebrity Summit's teen club and disco. Participation in the kids' program is complimentary (with some exceptions) and is broken nicely into compatible age groups. "Toddler Time" (ages 3 and younger) requires parental accompaniment for children who are not yet potty-trained, and potty-trained children from ages 3 to 5 can join the "Shipmates" program. "Cadets" (6 to 8), "Ensigns" (9 to 11) and "Teens" (12 to 17) make up the balance of the groups. Age-appropriate activities are available for each, and trained counselors are in attendance. Facilities are open from 9 a.m. each morning, or half an hour prior to arriving in port for parents who are booked on cruise-line-sponsored shore excursions.

Activities include sports, crafts, karaoke, treasure hunts, theme parties, movie showings and more. LeapFrog interactive toys are available for use in the kids' facilities, or they can be checked out for private use. Video games and late-night dances are available for teen passengers.

All participants ages 3 to 8 must be signed in/out to the Fun Factory club by an adult older than 18, presenting a previously signed password for verification. Children ages 9 to 11 can sign themselves in and out of programs until 10 p.m., but an adult is required to sign them out of activities after 10 p.m. A slumber party is offered in the playroom every evening from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. A lunch party is available on port days from noon to 2 p.m., and a dinner party is available every evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Each of the three parties costs $6 per hour, per child. Pre-registration is required for lunch and dinner parties.

Limited, private in-room baby-sitting is available for children 12 months and older. The cost is $19 per hour for up to three children from the same family. Arrangements must be made 24 hours in advance through guest relations.

V.I.P. passes that allow unlimited access to all program activities are available. They offer 40 percent savings on all individual lunch, dinner and slumber parties, and children with V.I.P. passes will be given an exclusive goodie bag and will have access to exclusive activities, such as behind-the-scenes tours. Infants who sail must be at least 6 months old as of the first day of the cruise. However, for transatlantic, transpacific, select South America and other cruises, infants must be at least 12 months old.

Celebrity Summit's family accommodations are the largest of the balcony cabins, and they easily sleep a family of four. It's also worth noting that there is no dedicated kids' pool, and the ship's main pool is a lap pool that is generally from five to more than six feet deep, so it may not be suitable for younger children.
