Default traveling on Carnival Celebration out of Galveston

I have a bunch of questions...I hope someone can answer for me.

1. How would you rate the Camp Carnival staff on the Celebration. (we will be traveling with our 2 year old). What about the program, is it good for young children?

2. Are children allowed into the shows in the evening (like the Vegas type show)?

3. Are children welcomed in the late seating at dinner (we are night owls...even the toddler).

4. Are children allowed in the dining room on the formal night (this is a 5 day cruise)?.

5. Has anyone ever had problems with leaving their luggage in the hallway the night before departing the cruise (like luggage stolen or picked through)?

6. On formal nights does the 2 year old have to be dressed up...would a nice short set be accepatable?

Thank you so much for your help...and offering any oher tips I may not of thought of yet!

Tammy

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.

People with children are encourage to take early dining, but the choice is yours. A

Yes, they are, 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.
