We are taking that exact same cruise itinerary in September 2009, I choose the right hand side of the ship (E2 balcony 7318) if you are standing facing the front of the ship. So, since I really don't know, is that the port side or the starboard side??
All references are made as if you are facing the front (bow) of the ship with the back (stern or aft) behind you. In this case your left is the 'port' side and your right is the 'starboard' side. The ships lights at night have a red light on the port side and green on the starboard side. Now there are 2 easy ways to remember all this.
1. All the short words are on the same side LEFT, PORT, RED, so all the long words are ths other side.
2 A handy mnemonic is 'There is some RED PORT wine LEFT in the bottle'
