Onboard Spaces circle

The array of public spaces on the ship have been adapted to serve as lecture halls, classrooms, offices, workshop rooms and rehearsal areas. Students from the Global University, International Student and Global English and Espanol Training programs use the classrooms, and the ballroom and lounges are ideal venues for public speaking, functioning both as lecture halls and stage spaces.

Participants are also free to use the various areas around the ship for self planned events, such as educational presentations, displays of artwork, sports clubs, dance practice or planning campaigns for peace activism.

At the hub of Peace Boat’s activities is the Peace Center or “P-Cen,” an office space used by both staff and participants to coordinate onboard events, edit videos, produce posters, plan campaigns and publish the Peace Boat newspaper.

As well as these working spaces, the ship also offers a variety of places to relax, including a sports deck, gym, library, cinema, swimming pools, coffee shops, bars and a sunbathing deck.
