Normally the port, (left side), of the ship, the cabin numbers will be even numbers. On the Starboard, (right side), of the ship your cabin numbers will usually be odd numbers. From my Navy days...the only boats are lifeboats, small boats and submarines...but we use to call submarines targets. (My Destroyer days).
We almost always reserve a port side balcony stateroom. I normally can take the best photographs from that side.
We love anything assocated with crusing and traveling. We are retired U.S. Navy...and loving it, "Been there...done that"! (almost).
