Social Distancing impacts. 
 

There is one ice show and one theater show due to the reduced capacity of the theaters. Each plays 4 or 5 times. While it may be hard to see, this is Studio B. There are 5 sections (2 on each side and 1 and the entrance end) of about 140 seats. Because of social distancing requirements, those sections only will seat about 24 people. The section may look sparse, but except for a couple of seats, it is at max capacity. All seat with white covers are blocked. The first two rows are fully blocked. Every other row is blocked.

At least you have an unobstructed view. 😊

I know this was a hot topic before the pandemic….do they still have plastic straws? Trying to determine if I should bring my own reusable straws.

I understand the cruise lines are doing this to be ultracareful due to the bad press they received early last year.  But this just seems over the top to me.  Knowing how virtually every other major tourist area is right now (i.e., no social distancing now at Walt Disney World, no reduced capacity at Universal parks), I hope the cruise lines quickly reduce or remove a lot of these measures over the next few sailings.

Question on the app.  My husband doesn’t like to use his phone on vacation.  Any chance I can use the app on my phone for us both?  Thanks!

If needed. they will provide you with a paper menu.

I recall them having paper straws on my cruises jan/feb 2020.

I bring my own reusable straws. I hate the paper ones. They break down too fast. Or else I drink too slowly.

There's a lot of over the top going on (like the person staffing the soda machine). Hopefully they relax things as time goes on.

other than the cruise compass, the rest is just useless advertising

And it’s all available to read on your room television on that channel.  You don’t  even need a smart phone…

It’s funny that everyone was happy to use an app or a video on the room television for the muster drill. 🤔

A fantastic, high energy ice show

Interesting note your 2nd pic down, the girl in the green dress looks like Jordan Bauth. She is a vlogger and ice skater in the show. She does a nice job vlogging her time on Adventure. Seems very nice and of course is a very professional ice skater. Here is her latest where I recognized the green outfit.

Hi Bird,

When guests are walking the pier to board in Nassau is there a golf cart to shuttle folks that need assistance? Thank you for the amazing and super informative review! I can't wait until Saturday when it's my turn.

This is a max capacity theater. Blue seats are blocked for social distancing (first two

rows of theater, every other row, every two seats). Protecting the unmasked performers as much as the passengers). In bars, performers and piano players are behind plexiglass and rope barriers.

Cool Art… Hot Ice…

 

A fantastic, high energy ice show. National and Olympic ice skaters from Russia, US and Canada take you on a fusion of art and skating.

almost forgot how much I miss those fantastic ice shows, certainly one of our favorites

Bryan Cheatham was tonight’s entertainment. 
 

“From the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip (Chippendale vocalist) this season 3 “America’s Got Talent” semi-finalist brings you soulful sounds from Motown, pop songs, love ballads and his own spin on Disney classics.”

The ship is remaining on eastern daylight savings time and not rolling back to Cozumel time. Standby for mass confusion as people turn on their cell phone and they sync with the local carrier.

Sorry if I have missed this,  but what is the logic behind not having the windjammer open for dinner? Surely having another venue open for dinner would only help to space people out and improve social distancing ?

Short on staff is the only reason I can think of, but that doesn’t make sense either. Would seem logical to have it open. 🤷🏼‍♀️

 

I see Bird just explained it.

Will we have the first pier runner instance of 2021?

Good Morning Adventure of the Seas!

 

After two relaxing beach days, it is time for a relaxing sea day.

Best location on the ship IMO.

Not worth prepping all that food for both the buffet and MDRs for only 1000 people.
