RCCL's prototype for its new line of "Voyager" class ships accommodates 3,200 passengers and a 1,200-person crew. The four-story-high, atrium-enclosed, pedestrian street on the luxurious new cruise ship is FDA's latest venture into entertainment design for signature public space.

This "Royal Promenade," is lined with a mélange of cafés, boutiques, casinos, and pubs which surprise and delight the passerby with bold theatrical effects from every angle, including overhead. Every evening, parades, jongleurs, buskers, magicians, and mimes mingle with passengers along this space. Atrium-view cabins, which replace viewless "inside cabins" on other ships, afford a clear vista along the promenade, while the Captain's Bridge is a prime spot for passengers to see and be seen.

The Royal Promenade can be found on the following ships:
 - Voyager of the Seas
 - Navigator of the Seas
 - Mariner of the Seas
 - Explorer of the Seas
 - Adventure of the Seas
