Default Deck Music

We have cruised in the past with Carnival and RCCL but love the itinerary on the Summit this fall. One of the things we love on the other lines is the Island Music a live band plays on the lido decks every day.
Can someone tell us if they do the same on Celebrity?

Celebrity also has the live band on deck and plays a mix of Caribbean and contemporary music. It is very similar to what you would hear on Royal Caribbean or Carnival but the volume is usually a little lower.

Take care,
Mike

Mustang Sally, I can tell by your screen name you are a music lover!
Yes, Celebrity also has "pool bands". I have to say that the quality of said pool bands vary from ship to ship, not necessarily from cruise line to cruise line. I have heard some great ones, and also unfortunately, some not-quite-ready-for -prime-time ones. How some of these bands get hired when they can only play 3 chords and are tone deaf is beyond me!
However, hope you get a good band and enjoy your cruise!

I hope the pool band on Summit is good and I hope there is also an area for poolside dancing too.

The band usually plays for about an hour in the afternoon and if there should be an evening poolside function.
We have not been on the Summit, but have been on the Millennium 4 times and have always found a place to dance. The dance floor in front of the band stand is usually full of loungers - at least on Caribbean cruises and other warm weather cruises.

Glad to hear that there is an evening poolside party like Royal has.

No dancing area in front of the poolside band :eek:
I'll just move some loungers and make my very own poolside dancing area.

We were on the Summit in August. If you are looking froward to island music, this cruise is for you!!! The band seemed to only know Bob Marley songs. Don;t get me wrong, I like Bob Marley, but how many times can you head "I Shot the Sheriff" in one week!!!

For my tastes, I thought the volume by the pool was low and the selection poor,

We were at the Wynn Encore in Vegas in July and I found the music selection 100x better. YMMV

As Rollerdonna said, bands vary from cruise to cruise, but in general you will find a decent band.
