Wrong side of this ship...

This is probably the silliest post ever, and I do understand that if this is my biggest problem, nobody's going to feel sorry for me, but I'm saying it anyway.

In August, I sailed the Dream concierge. We were in room 12508. Loved the view from the balcony. We waived to the folks ashore when we sailed away, we were right in front of the fireworks (I've heard they don't like people on the balconies during fireworks- but that wasn't a problem in August) and we were on the CC side when we docked.

This coming August, I got the last cat V on the 12th deck...room 120something. I'm on the wrong side of the ship for all of that.

I guess nothing is perfect.

Well now you get to see what the others see. Seriously I am sure it was a bummer to not have the same great view but I am sure it will all be a wonderful trip. I envy you.

Thanks. I can't wait. We're going for my birthday so it's a big splurge and I'm working a lot of overtime to make up the price difference. Oh, and this year it's on the Fantasy, not the Dream.

Be happy your on a cruise and enjoy it!
Waste no more energy on what side your on, just enjoy the atmosphere, and since your on the Fantasy, you may be on the island side or bay view side of your other ports than Nassau so celebrate that and go up on deck to watch the fireworks!!!

You will be in different ports, so may have the port view. Also, at CC there will be CMs on the dock waving at you with Mickey gloves -- just like at the terminal. We make sure that we pack our Mickey gloves so the kids can wave back to them.

We prefer the port side for more than a few reasons. Not the least of which, I do not like to see CC when I am at CC. From our cabin at CC, we overlook the wonderful expanse of the open sea. It is such a peaceful way to end a weeklong cruise.

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

I ordered them from Disneystore.com years ago. They also have them in the parks & I think onboard now. We took them for the sail away part for the kids to wear also.

At CC Starboard side, at Nassau it depends on what ship is next to you if you have one! Other port's also depend on what berth is assigned and the ships direction is subject the prevailing winds as well.

I wouldn't worry too much and enjoy the view you get!

We're somewhat partial to the port side, especially when we fly, but we're looking forward to experiencing the starboard stateroom that we were just assigned to on our upcoming cruise. No disappointment here, we just hope that the weather will be conducive to docking at CC.

Glad to hear 12508 has a great view...We're staying in that room in March! Tell me about the balcony...It's one of the larger ones, right?

To ease your fears, we stayed on the other side of the ship last year, and we still had a great time.

If you don't like what you have, let inventory control know that you are interested in moving should something open up. And then, enjoy the fact that the sides are port and starboard, not right and wrong.
