Default Western Caribbean - Port or starboard

Hi everybody!

We are about to book a balcony suite on the Norwegian Jewel for the 14-day western Caribean and we wonder which side of the ship we should book. Has anyone an advice?

Thanks in advance

Looking at your ports, I don't think it will make any difference.
You may want to check and see which side of the Jewel is smoking. If memory serves me correctly it's usually the starboard side. This may not have any impact on you but if so, check with NCL.

It really does not make any significant difference. Your docking may be determined by the time you arrive in port or by the pier assignment.

You may have an island view on port on a southern course but travel is at night so you won't see much.

I would go for ship location vs. port or starboard.

Take care,

I guess I can about say the same. In fact on most cruises it doesn't make a difference. This isn't always the case, just a generalzition.
