The Royal Promenade (on deck 5) is the center for many activities. It is reminiscent of a quaint European town. This four-deck high mall area hosts the Captain's Champagne Reception as well as carnival-like parades with street jugglers, dancers, jesters, etc. Passengers can also check out the Duck & Dog Pub, Sports Bar, or help themselves to ice cream, cookies, pizza or sandwiches at the Cafe Promenade where Seattle's best coffee is always available.
In the aft Centrum starboard are the Guest Relations and Explorations desks, while on the port side is the Champagne Bar (with two sculptures by the American artist Helaine Blumenfeld). The Centrum is dominated by a four-deck tall piece of artwork entitled "The Dive" by Lawrence Kirkland. This piece depicted a divers view when looking up from the sea bottom. Another attraction of the Royal Promenade is the 1939 Citroen Roadster – really cool looking car.
