Default Port or Starboard - booking now... adivce appreciated


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 think it is pretty much a push - half the time you are going south & half time your head north.

It also depends on how your ship docks/tenders. Its really a crapshoot. There is usually cool things to see from either side of the ship. If you dont like the view from your room just go up on deck to see it all. Getting yourself an umbrella drink will make it that much better!
