Default Alaska--port vs. starboard room

I am sure this has been asked before, but I can't locate any info. Is there a real difference?? We are on the Baja deck--catagory BC on the starboard side in September. Is this one of the larger balcony rooms??? Looks bigger than the Caribe deck balconies. Thanks a bunch.

Annie,

I'm not persuaded that it will matter whether you are on the port side or the starboard side. When you are in the inside passage or the fjords where the glaciers are, there will be land on both sides. The rest of the time, you will be out of sight of land since the ship has to go into international waters (twelve nautical miles from land) to open the shops and the casino.

Norm.

If you are on a roundtrip cruise it really makes no difference. On a one-way however, the Port side will face the mainland southbound and Starboard cabins will face the mainland on the northbound route. In places like Glacier Bay the ship will turn so that both sides of the ship will get a view of the glaciers.
