What's the best side of the Ship for island views

I'm going on the Pride of America and I want to pick the best balcony cabin. What side of the ship has the best/longest views of the islands. I prefer not to look at endless water.

Looking at your itinerary it shouldn't make much difference due to most of your ocean sailing being at night. However, you will get the best shore views from the starboard side going into Maui early in the morn and when you do Hilo to Kona and later partly circle Kuai, the port side would be best, but it is really splitting hairs. If you are on early seating for dinner you will miss the good sail away's anyway.

We always book with a carnival rep. Use the same one for years. She always books us on the port side. So far so good

The outside of the ship will usually provide the best views.

I’m telling ya, you can’t buy quality answers like this.......BUT WAIT ! NOW YOU CAN ! In my new book, Obvious Answers for the Oblivious Cruiser. here’s a sample

Which side of the bed should I sleep on ?

The top side of course

Which deck has the best views ?

The annual Playboy Playmate Poker Deck

Should I have reservations for the steakhouse ?

Experience has shown me that on ships, the steakhouses are excellent dining options. I never have reservations about dining in them.

Those and hundreds of other FAQs and not so FAQs are available for the incredibly low price..........of $14.99 on Amazon.

Since I've never been to Hawaii, I can't comment on those islands, but we have noticed that the ship can be docked with either side toward the island. We took the same itinerary months apart and decide to book the other side of the ship for the sake of variety. Wouldn't you know, the second ship was docked the opposite direction from the first and we got the same view. Oh, well....Big Smile still beautiful!

I can't believe Aunt Pinkie has never been to "Paradise". Be a lot of fun to read her reviews when she eventually makes it. Since you live in the northern latitudes, sort of like us, my suggestion is to try and make it around the end of February, the first time anyway. Nothing like getting off the airplane into a land of Technicolor, odors of coconuts and pineapple and singing birds, after a winter of cabin fever and black and white horizons.

Thanks! While it is on my "to do" list, the DH has little desire to cruise there. I'll wear him down eventually.Wink
