    I'm wondering whether port or starboard offer better views as you come into port on the Fantasy for a Western Caribbean itinerary. The ports are Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Castaway Cay.

    Thank you!

    There really isn't any one side that is better then another as the ship can dock at any port any way she needs to for maintenance or safety drills or weather conditions. Some people want to have the "perfect view of castaway cay" well it is possible to get it, you may be on the one cruse where the ship has to dock differently for one of the above reasons.

    I did some Googling and found satellite pictures of the ports. Look at Costa Maya in Google Maps. There are three ships docked, and the photos are so detailed you can almost see the people on the deck.

    In Costa Maya the dock was to the starboard side with the down on the other side of the ship and the portside looking out to sea. In GC you tender. In Cozumel the ship has docked all four times with the dock to the portside and the town on the other side of the next ship and the view of the water to the starboard.
