Deck Seven Promenade
The Island Princess Cruise Ship
On A Panama Canal Cruise

The promenade deck is a deck found on several types of passenger ships and river boats. It usually extends from bow to stern, on both sides, and includes areas open to the outside, resulting in a continuous outside walkway suitable for promenading, (i.e., walking) thus the name. On modern cruise ships with superstructures as high and broad as the hull, the promenade deck is often largely enclosed, with railing-lined "cutouts" and wooden decking to recall the old days. The promenade may be used for jogging as well as walking, and signs indicate the mileage. [from wikipedia]

The promenade deck was wide and open to the sea. One could walk or jog below suspended lifeboats.

The promenade deck was open at night. One could could sip a drink while seated on a deck chair and watch the dark sea run past. Or one could step out for a breath of fresh air after an evening gambling in the casino.
