What side of the ship should I be on for southern Caribbean? Starts in San Juan and goes to St. Thomas, St. Martin, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados. We have a balcony and I want to wake up to the view of the ports.

If it is raining the best side to be on is the inside. LOL. It is hard to decide what side to be on because the ship will not always dock on a certain side. If you have to tender to a port the ship just anchors at sea and sometimes will swing around. Leaving San Jaun you would want to be on the right side to see the walls that make up the old fort. If you cannot see this from your balcony it is worth going to the other side of the ship. Most of the ports are in a bay so sometimes it is better to be on the other side so you can see more scenery and not an industrial port that consists of cargo containers. Be sure to order room service for breakfast on the balcony even if it is just for coffee. I have found that you can write a request in for something that is not on the menu card and they will usually deliver it.
