horizontal atrium, is two football fields in length and four decks high.
With a wide selection of shops, restaurants and entertainment the Royal
Promenade will be the place to be.For starters, Royal Promenade has more
shopping opportunities than any other ship at sea. You'll find boutiques

street festivities, you'll find an ambience comparable to that of New
York's Times Square or London's Burlington Arcade. The Royal Promenade

questions of our time. With a visit to the Lab, the Explorer of the Seas
