It may not "equal out" on a given cruise, but I'm not aware of any way to predict which side might be better on one cruise or another. You can't even be sure that a ship will have the same berths even on consecutive sailings.

That said, there are plenty of public spaces where you can go to watch as the ship enters or leaves port if your cabin happens to be on the "wrong" side -- or, for that matter, on the inside.

We've always prefered the port side. On our last crusies we were put on starboard against our will and it turned out that that was the best side for most of the cruise.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
