I always go with the port side, that way you get to see all the ports! Hope this helps!

Our cabin was on the starboard side... the side that faced every port we were in on the W. Caribbean cruise. The only time I wished we were on the port side was in Key West because there are small islands and a lot of water craft to watch from that side while in port.

We always try to book an aft balcony cabin. These cabins usually have much larger balconies, give you a panoramic view, and most importantly, eliminate the need to choose between port and starboard.
