Default Port or Starboard on AOS to southern?

I’m having a hard time remembering the docking arrangements in Curacao and Aruba.

Just got back from southern carib. on the Adventure and I believe you disembark on the starboard side in both ports.

I guess I should have worded my question better. Im looking for the side with the better views from a balcony while in port.

In St T port would be better as you would be over looking the port and not the dock. St Mrtn is a crap shoot as to what side of the pier you'll be on. I believe port side would be toward the other two islands also but its been a few years since I've been to Curacao and Aruba so I was wondering.

Seadog, I was on the AOS sailing 9/16-9/23. Who was your cruise director? We had Pierce, whos title was actually entertainment director but one of the staff told me he was just filling in for the week. Was just wondering. Bob

Back to the question at hand by the OP.

The dock side in Aruba was the starboard side, the view from the port side was of the water. IMO, starboard was the better side with a view of the dock. In Curacao, dock side was the port side, also IMO the better view. Hope this helps.

Thanks JL.

Have a good sailing! In Aruba there was some construction in the peir area. From the looks of it, a shopping complex that was mostly complete, but barricades were still up. Contruction near the pier in Curacao was of the new Renaissance Hotel.

ragtiki2005, sorry it took me so long to respond I've been trying to play "catch up" on some loose ends. In answer to your question Pierce was the entertainment director for our cruise. I thought Pierce was kinda' corny at times but overall he was ok. It was a pleasure meeting you at the meet and greet. I had a great cruise and am looking forward to my next one in April.
