Other than the view of Castaway Cay - any big differences in side of ship for our verandah.....fireworks, sunsets, other islands on western itinerary?

No, as the ship can dock in either direction in Cozumel and Jamaica and tenders in Grand Cayman.

Fireworks can be shot from either side, based on wind direction, and you cannot be on your verandah anyway if you have a stateroom that would provide a good view because of safety concerns.

Fireworks are usually shot so that people can see them on the starboard side. Not guaranteed, but that's the most common.

We were on the starboard side (midship) and sat on the balcony during fireworks. It was amazing!!

I know most people prefer starboard for the view at CC, but I prefer port for that. I like seeing the dock side, and there have been times we have been able to hear the music being played down below.
