What are the entertainment choices on the Adventure of the Seas recently?

The same as they have been. Shows most nights in the theater, ice shows on certain days, etc.

And:  Schooner bar (deck 4), Boleros (deck 4),  Duck and Dog pub (deck 5), Imperial lounge (deck 5), plus a pool band sometimes. I'm guessing the deck 14 Blue Moon (Viking Crown) is a disco at night since the old "dungeon" lounge has been removed from decks 3 and 4. Sometimes the Royal Promenade (deck 5) has music or parades or parties.

If you have not done so already, you should do your online checkin now.

 

Back to the entertainment, when you board you will find a "Cruise Compass" in your cabin. Every evening your cabin attendant will place in the cabin the next day's Cruise Compass. This is a daily schedule of events, including all entertainment and live music schedules and locations. The Cruise Compass is also available next to Guest Services (deck 5), and available on interactive screens in most of the public areas near the staircases. (I've not sailed on Adventure but I would think they have these screens by now.) There might be only one theater show the first and last night. Other nights there should be two (2) shows, scheduled around the fixed dining times -- early diners go to the later show (after dinner), and later diners go to the early show (before dinner).

 

Live music times vary but are usually something like 9pm until midnight, with 15-20 minute breaks ever hour or so. You do NOT need to buy a drink to see the live music -- just sit down (if you can find a seat) and enjoy. I don't think the Adventure of the Seas requires nor takes reservations for shows.

 

Ice Show -- Some cruises I've been on had free tickets for the ice show (but not reserved seats) -- those with tickets get to enter first -- but my last cruises have not done this. Hint: The first 2 ice shows are usually more crowded than the others. (My cruises have 4 ice shows -- 2 one one day and 2 on another.) Guest services can tell you when the ice shows are scheduled. The ice show is usually a "don't miss".

 

There should also be a "Love and Marriage" game show, which is "newlywed game" but with one newly married couple, one couple married around 20 years or so, and one couple married over 50 years -- On my cruises this as been mid-cruise around 10pm in the theater, with no main theater show that night.

 

Towards the end of the cruise (usually the 2nd or 3rd to the last night around 10pm or so in Studio B deck 3) is the Quest game show. This is for adults only, and can get close to R rated. I like this show, but my wife does not. You can find some youtube videos of this -- for example, youtube video ID 2wzuicolClk on the Liberty of the Seas. Ships without studio B do the quest in the lounge, which I actually prefer. In the lounge you have lots of groups -- 30 or more -- each with only 5 or 6 people, so everyone participates. In Studio B, you have only 8 to 12 groups, and most people are spectators and don't participate. It is still a lot of fun, I think.

 

The ship's 9-piece big band usually does at least one dance set, probably in the deck 5 forward lounge. There is usually a "jazz" set also another night with the ship's singers.

 

Check for daytime events, such as the men's belly flop contest or the women's hairy chest contest. (Just kidding about this last one -- it is men!). There are usually trivia contests on sea days, and sometimes even on port days -- no charge. There are also games with a fee, such as bingo.

 

If you want to use the casino, bring some cash. You can use your cruise Seapass card (which is your room key and charge card on the ship) to get cash, but there fee -- 3% I think. And the casino will likely be smoky since this is one of the few areas for smoking.

 

Enjoy your cruise.

I remember that lounge from years ago. What has taken its place?

Hi Jim,

 

I met you and your wife years ago on a cruise out of Galveston.  I went to Covenant for years.

 

I saw the thread you started earlier today.  There was an active thread yesterday but folks got so nasty that I guess the moderators shut it down.

 

Really a tragic situation!
