Default Sunny side of ship - Grandeur of the Seas

Hi
Can anyone advise which side of the ship would be best for evening sun on the Circumnavigate Australia cruise Feb'09 ? We will cruise from Sydney to Freemantle via Cairns then up to Darwin etc. then Freemantle back to Sydney via New Zealand, just can't seem to get my head round this one lol...

I most certainly do, since the GR will be sailing the Caribbean during the time you mention
So perhaps you will be sailing the Rhapsody of the Seas instead

The sunny side of the ship will be the side facing East in the morning and facing West in the afternoon.

Yep, good answer Dave. I figured it would depend on which day, as it'll be going all the way around Australia, so any given day she'll be headed a different direction, and the sun will be on a different side of the ship! I'd say, that you could take any outside cabin, and some day you'll be on the sunny side!

For Info
Just some additional info someone else kindly gave me

Sydney to Darwin, port side.
Darwin to Perth, starboard.
Perth to Melbourne, port.
Melbourne to the bottom of NZ, starboard (stern).
South NZ to Auckland, port.
Auckland to Sydney, port side.


Basically you do a full anitclockwise circumnavigation of Australia.
Then head South East to NZ then mostly North East to Auckland and mainly North West to Sydney.


The sun will be setting in the North West part of the compass, sometimes more west than North over the top of Ozzy and then in the Kiwi area it will be a lot more towards the Northern part of that sector.
