Cheffy, when you're not sitting still you can see which way you're moving if you can see the water. Guess if you're at port and directionally challenged it wouldn't really help much to see the water.
Those little things like the carpet on Princess and signs on RCI are not always common knowledge for new cruisers. Ever seen the lost souls wandering aimlessly down the halls of the cabin decks and when they get about half way there they stopp and look dazed. Then start wandering the other direction. And I'm not talking about the ones leaving the bars at 2:00am.

I know you knew that, but I couldn't resist.
I wasn't sure at the time, if the port side was on the left on the Brilliance of the Seas. Thank you though!
This applies, of course, only on ships operating in the Western Hemisphere. As you know, water and weather goes in the opposite direction in the Southern Hemisphere (ever watch the water in the bathtub go in the opposite direction in Austrailia?) - so the Port side is actually on the right side south of the equator.
Neil, your post reminds me of a mind-reader, or "Mentalist", as he billed himself, that did shows on Island Princess eons ago. He was good; we (the band) were on stage behind him night after night and never could figure out his stunts.
But almost every night after the shows, we would find him wandering the halls, looking for his cabin. "Ricky! Ricky! Which way is my cabin?"
Thanks for the invite. I see it's still a while off and I'm beginning to get the itch to go. I'm just not all that sociable on vacation, I have to deal with people everyday at work. I'll consider it but it's not yet high on my vacation priority list.
There are a few here, you included, I'd love to meet.
You see, the thing is, I deal with people all day-every day too; I'm not in travel but I deal with complaints and problems and have to do it all with a smile and at least act like I give a****! But here, and on vacation, I can be myself; if I don't like what you say I can ignore you; but I think as you can tell from the banter here, a lot of us get along famously--even if we don't always agree. So give it some more thought; I/we would love to see you come along.
