Just to clarify - "oceanview" can be either side of the ship. Starboard is the right side of the ship when facing forward, and the other side is called "port."

(Remember port = left, both have four letters).

But just because it is called port it no longer signifies the ship will dock on that side of the ship. I guess it once did (google it) but nowadays a ship can dock equally on either the port or starboard side.

I did not know that was why they called it the port side that is interesting
