I don't remember which is which so I will tell you left or right, folks correct me if I'm wrong but...San Juan don't really remember but thinking left, St Thomas left, St Maarten we were tendering at that time, Nassua right, Miami right.

We didn't go to St. Martin but in the other ports on the Explorer - Miami - the dock was on the starboard side - Nassau - the dock was on the Port side - St. Thomas - the dock was on the starboard side - San Juan - the dock was on the port side. Our balcony cabin was on the port side and we always had a great view coming into port. I took a lot of pictures from our balcony as we were coming into each port - you can see them at - http://community.webshots.com/user/jean_lynd . I hope this helps. Feel free to email me if you have any other questions.

I think it depends on how many cruise ships are in post and the size of the ships, etc.. In my experiencs, St. Thomas has always been Starboard(right). San Juan, it depends on which pier. Could be either. Miami, too. See attached pic.

You might be able to find someone who has gone recently on the particular ship you're interested in......

Yep oopsy I goofed, I got all mixed up trying to think where my cabin was and where I was facing in port! Sorry I knew I could on someone correcting me. I forget in Miami we were backwards and same in Nassua.

Just got back from Adventure(second time this year). I'm not sure wether it helps to know which way you look in any given port. In our case, while San Juan and Curacao were the same this trip(probably due to both places single-ship terminals), In Aruba and St. Thomas, we were facing the same way but in different spots on the pier. And in St. Maarten, we pulled straight in this time versus backing in last time and that obviously changed the view. I think it really depends on the other ships in port, among other things. But that being said, In St. Maarten, we were the only ship both times so that doesn't explain the difference.
