Deck 8 is as high as you can go on a promenade room. You'll almost be in the center of the promenade deck. Your windows will be at an angle so you can look straight down. You'll have fun watching people roam around. It's great to watch the parade from you cabin also. There is no noise; in case you're wondering. I was in a promenade room on deck 6 on the Navigator in March. We liked the room.
