Default which side of the ship?

We're heading on a Celebrity cruise to Southern Caribbean from San Juan. Is one side of the ship more scenic than the other? We'll have a veranda so want to make the most of it.

honestly it doesn't matter,when you are sailing you are so far off shore that you really can't see much of anything, and when you do pull into port what you miss coming in you can catch on your way out of port

The ship does not always dock the same way round & in case you are wondering "port side" does not mean that side is in to the port.

The only difference on what time of day you'll get the sun.
If your on the port side ( left side looking toward the bow) you'll get the
morning sun up to the Panama Canal and then the afternoon sun after the canal. If the ship aft facing balconies this won't hold true.
