Default Best views - port or starboard


I am ready to book a family cruise on the dream. I am debating about what rooms to book.

If I book a regular balcony room, should I be on the port or starboard side (right or left)? I would like to see the BEST views of the islands as possible. We are visiting Rotan, Belize, Costa Maya, and Cozumel (if that helps anyone figure out which is better).

Thanks very much. All help is greatly appreciated.

I'm sure this isn't fool proof, but I always do an internet search for the port I will be going to and then you can see which side of the ship has the best view. It's always worked for me.

honestly it doesn't really matter, because most of the time you will be pulling into port early, early in the morning, and what you don't see coming in you will see going out.

The best side, is the side you are on. ....go up on deck for wraparound views.
