Port or starboard

Recommended Posts

We'll be taking a southern Caribbean cruise and getting an ocean view room. It'd be nice to take in the islands from our room before starting the day (and when sailing away). In past cruises elsewhere I seem to remember the docks were almost always on the starboard side. Anyone know if there's a list of which ports dock on which side of the ship?

If you go on youtube and type in the ship you are going on you might be able to  see the ship docked in the ports you are going to and that will give you a idea of which side people are getting off.

Port or Starboard?  Yes.  There is no set side that always is against the pier.  It varies.

From an Ocean View cabin you might find it better to visit the highest deck to take a picture of each island.  Better views higher up.  

Grand Cayman tenders (Western Caribbean). 

CocoCay tenders (Bahamas,  pier is nearing completion by EOY 2018).

Cool thanks. Yeah I remember getting a little green in the gills at Grand Cayman... and then of course my shore excursion was a ride on a pirate ship, lol. Looks like that won't be an issue this time around 😄

If you're leaving from San Juan and you plan to be in your room as your cruise begins, you will want to be on the starboard side.  The views of El Morrow as you leave the harbor are awesome.

Ah no, we are sailing from Miami, and PR isn't on the itinerary. That's good to know though, for future sailings!

Now I am confused because we never tendered in Belize before. They have a huge pier. In fact the best bar is the Sandpiper Tiki bar at the end of the pier.

We went to Belize City on Indy 2 years ago and had to Tender

We went on Carnival and had to tender....sorry about that curse word...we've moved past that now and know our mistakes, sort of like Sabrina cruising MSC....LOL

 

We feel your pain. The only bad cruise we every took. 

It has been awhile since we have been to Belize. Did they change where the ship anchors? Going again in Feb.

Probably not.  Belize is an amazing reef system.  That's probably why scuba diving is so popular there.  With that comes the need to anchor way out.  Destroy massive amounts of coral reef to build a channel, harbor and pier - I hope not.
