Carnival has an excellent kids program throughout their ships, and I wouldn't expect anything less on Celebration. IMHO dealing with a 2 year old you're not going to be getting much of a program, as a babysitting service.
If your 2 year old is good in group situations, it should be OK, but honestly I wouldn't expect to be leaving them in the "program" every day, all day.
2. Are children allowed into the shows in the evening (like

Yes. There are no age restrictions in the show room, other than the X rated midnight shows.
If the child is awake and becomes irritable, simply take him/her out of the room. Otherwise, no problem.

I personally have had no problem with this, nor have I heard of others having a problem with us. BUT, for sure I'd be certain the luggage is locked, and keep any medications or valuables with you for your carry on.

Those baby tuxes are so cute.... but NO, no one will care what the toddler is wearing.
I will say, that with a child this young, I don't believe you can rely on Camp Carnival, or the cruise line to do much more than give you a break (supply a baby sitting service for awhile). With older kids it's a bit easier for parents and kids to enjoy their time together and apart.
In your case I think you should count on yourself more than Camp Carnival, and that may affect your vacation.
