MUSIC AND EVENT VENUES
CONSTELLATION LOUNGE, GRAND FOYER, RENDEZVOUS LOUNGE, AND POOL PERFORMANCES
You will not need to present your Stateroom Key Card at the entrance to these venues as none of these shows are color-coded and are open general admission. Seats are not assigned and can be selected on a first-come first-served basis. Guests are advised to come with their entire party as we don’t allow the saving of seats.
CELEBRITY THEATER PERFORMANCES
Every guest will have the opportunity to see a nightly show based upon the designated keycard color (gold for early show and silver for late show). To ensure that the entry and seating procedure is both fair and easy, we have adopted the following policies and procedures:
- You must present your keycard to the ushers at the entrance in order to enter the theater for the appropriate show time.
- There are four entrances to the Celebrity Theater, two on Deck 4 and two on Deck 5. No other entrance is available for guests.
- Doors will open for each show approximately 30 minutes before scheduled show time. Seats are not assigned and can be selected on a first-come first-served basis.
- Guests are advised to come to the theater with their entire party as we don’t allow the saving of seats.
- Guests who interfere with the fair and safe entry into the theater may risk forfeiting their rights to attend that show or other shows. Our goal is to provide the best entertainment experience for all our guests, and we request that you treat all guests and staff with respect. Any behavior that disrupts the enjoyment of other guests will result in removal from the show by security staff.
- The taking of flash photos and recording of the shows violates our contracts 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 theater during shows.
