We had a promenade room once and loved it. It was very quiet -- we didn't even hear the parade the 1st time, but once we discoverd they had them it was a blast to watch from up above. We have since moved to balcony because my spouse dives and there is room for stuff to dry. Considered a promenade last year when my brother & family went, but they book up really fast. Remember that if the sheer curtains are not closed, people can see movement near the windows from the promendade! Have fun!
