I am booked for my first TP from Vancouver to Japan in Sept 2022.  I would like to have sunonmybalcony as much as possible.  Should I books the port or starboard side? Thanks


Without knowing the ports, I will assume some type of Great Circle routing that probably visits some Alaskan ports.


For the initial few days you would be steering NW'ly courses, with sunrise on the Stbd qtr and then sun on the port side for most of the day. Going across the top, steering predominently W'ly courses, you will have sun (on the rare occassion you can see it) on the port side. Heading down into Asia you will have sunrise on the port side and sunset on the stbd side.


Accepting that you may rarely see clear skies and the sun, I would book the Port side.
