Unless you have dinner after 8 PM you have to make a reservation for select dining.  Cruise was nice, upscale and geared towards adults.  No water slides, rock climbing walls,which was fine with me.  Food in dining room and cafateria was typical cruise ship fare, nothing special. Speciality restaurants were expensive approx. $40 per person. Very limited waiter service on deck and it was easier to get up and go to one of the many bars for a cocktail.  While the crowd was mostly middle aged people they were not as old as Holland America line which is generally older. Typical poolside games but you are unable to escape the constant music unless you go to the upper deck on the bow of the ship for some quiet time.  I'm told they replaced the piano bar loung with a speciality beer bar which was empty all the time. I enjoyed not having many children onboard and if you have children then this is not for you. RCI or Carnival might be a better choice.  While this report might seem a little negative i will go back to Celebity in the future. RCI too many kids,  Holland America too old.
