Experienced cruisers, what's your opinion? we'll be on the western caribbean route in December ; which side of the ship is better for views?

Probably port. That being said, I booked on the starboard side in a hump cabin for my Aug 31 trip.

I really never noticed any difference. Some ports have the best view on the starboard, and some on the port side of he ship. Even giving it some thought, I wouldn't choose a cabin for what side of the ship it's on.

I agree with Sonny on this one. Which side of the ship a cabin is on should be the very last of your considerations. It simply does not matter since there is no gaurantee of which side will be facing the "view" while in port. ANd even if you could know for sue in advance, then I ask you what you how much time you would be spending in your cabin looking at the view while docked in port? Very little is the answer.

Thanks guys !
Can I ask another question? ...
when I look to book online, a handful of cabins are given for selection ... am I getting the best of what's available or is that just a random selection? Is there a site that tells you what cabins are available and the room's size, etc?
Haven't found any thing like that on RCC.

If you call Royal Caribbean direct they can tell you what's available. You should know what catagory you want to book. Do you want an inside, outside oceanview, or a balcony cabin? Which deck to you want? Just because a site online doesn't shows a cabin is available, it doesn't mean that it isn't.

A really cool site for deck plans, cabin sizes and descriptions, etc is www.cruisedeckplans.com

It's a site I always have open at the bottom of my screen for fast reference when I get questions from clients about where, how large and other inquiries about cabins. Just go to the public version of the site to see the ship layouts and description info.

Cheers, Neil

After you bring up the public site put your cursor over the cruiseline of choice and a drop down menu appears. You can then click on your ship and it's all right there a click away. Another useful tool is when viewing the deck plans you don't have to search the color code thing. Just move your cursor over the cabin and it'll tell you what category it is.

Cheers, Neil
