Bub- Really doesn't matter which side you are on. I think they ported equally on each side of the ship.
I'm not 100% sure on the frig thing. We had a suite on our Victory South Carib trip and it had a mini frig. I would think the balconies do too.
It is an exhausting cruise though but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I enjoyed the ports. The wife and I thought it would make for a great back to back cruise if you could get the time off. That way you could do half of the ports one cruise and the other half on the next one. Since you already paid air fare to get to PR
, its not too bad of a deal...
