We're interested in booking a cruise to Alaska for the first time and we're planning on going with RC instead of DCL because of the cost. DCL is just wayyyyyy too expensive to go to Alaska. We planning to go on a cruise that starts and returns to Seattle On the Ovation of the Seas. As far as booking a room, can anyone tell me if it's better to book the left or right side of the ship? This is in regards to cruising and seeing the ice bergs. I know the ship sails to Tracy Arm Fjords and I'm not sure if we dock and have an opportunity to take shore excursions or not. As far as I understand, it just hangs out there but please correct me if I'm wrong. If the ship doesn't dock does the ship stay stationary the whole time or does it rotate for the left side to view the glacier and then switch to the right side to view the glacier? I'm asking because we're planning on booking a balcony room and so it'll be easier to view the glacier form our room rather than deal with the crowds up on deck so I'm wondering if our room needs to be on the left or right side of the ship?
