Default Port side of the ship??

We are going to be on Fantasy in a few weeks cabin E 164. Does anybody know if this is the port side. When faceing the front of the ship, our cabin is on the left side. Our ports are Freeport and Nassau if that helps. Also we are under the galley, will this be noisy? Thanks for any help.

A ship's port side is the left of this ship, when onboard, facing the front (bow).

The right side is the starboard side.

"Port" side has nothing to do with the actual ports you are going to be visiting.

The Fantasy docks at Freeport on the starboard (right) side. The Fantasy docks in Nassau on the port (left) side. There's not much to see at the port in Freeport. I would recommend having breakfast on the stern in Nassau. Enjoy your cruise!

Thanks diverbl and Jwillia. Was a little dissapointed when i found out about the port in Freeport. But we are using this day for our snorkel excursion. Not really intrested in Freeport. Would of liked to gone over to Lucaya but heard to many horror stories about the taxies. Figured a Carnival excursion was the safest bet to be sure we made it back to the ship ontime!

Actually, it varies what side of the ship will be near the dock. When I was on the Fantasy last October, we had a starboard balcony and both in Freeport and in Nassau, we were facing the dock, able to see it from our balcony. I am not sure why it varies just have read that it does.

Sounds like it will be a surprise when we wake up! Freeport dont really care, but it would be nice to port on portside in Nassau.

I found that the rooms above, under, around the galley are going to be a little noisier than other areas of the ship.

Easy way to remember PORT and STARBOARD.
Face the front of the ship
Port and left have the same amount of letters in their spelling. So port =left.

Don't know what horror stories you heard, but the taxis in Freeport weren't any different than taxis in ANY of the Caribbean ports! They all drive like bats out of hell...

We went to Lucaya in Freeport and had a lovely day. Yes, the pier at Freeport is dismal, but a short 20-30 minute taxi ride will deposit you in the heart of Lucaya. There are taxi stands with DOZENS of taxis waiting to take you back to the ship at anytime.

We were on the Fantasy in December 2004. We had cabin U107 which is on the right (starboard) side and like Candy, we had the port both times. Freeport is not much to look at but Nassau was great to see from our balcony.

Also FYI, we did the Tranquility Shores beach excursion in Freeport and it was wonderful. The bus ride over was not that long and we got to see the sights of Freeport. Check out my pictures in the photo gallery under Freeport Excursion author Cheryl C. I think the date is around early January 2005.

I also have some pictures on the Fantasy under Carnival Fantasy around the same date

Even numbers are port side. If you count the letters on "port" and "even" you get an even number. That is how it works. All even numbers are port/left side and the odd numbers are starboard/right side.
There are other numbers to mention but we will wait til later

Good Luck

The reason port is port and starboard is starboard goes way back to the days of long ships and rowers. There was no real rudder, but a kind of oar, a "steerbord" as it was called in northern Europe. For religious reasons the steerbord was always placed on the right side of the ship. For practical reasons, to avoid damaging the steerbord, the left side of the ship would be placed against the dock while in port. And we'll let the vagaries of etymology explain how steerbord evolved into our starboard.

I may dwell on the land, but I live at sea!
