Traditionally, the port side would be preferable. However, when the ship calls in port, you could be docked (or sometimes anchored) in any direction, and in places like Glacier Bay, the crew will turn the ship around 360 degrees so everyone can view the glaciers. Good for you to choose a balcony cabin, though! IMO, that's the only way to cruise Alaska on a large ship.
