Alaska Soltice cruise 7-13 Which side of ship does it matter ?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at taking Wife for 25th anniversary, experienced western,eastern,southern cruisers on RC but wanting to do Alaska. Is this a good time and is there a preference to a side ? I think Starboard (right) ?

CruiserBruce has it right.


You will enjoy lots of views from the public decks where you can quickly go from one side to the other.


I would place more emphasis on where on the deck you are (eg, midship for less motion) rather then what side you are on.


Congratulations on your major milestone anniversary.


We have sailed Alaska several times and for our 25 wedding anniversary we also sailed Alaska.

From my research it seems that on a round trip cruise it really doesn't matter. If it is a northbound cruise starboard is popular and for southbound port seems to be favored. I booked a room that will be on the mainland side for a majority of our sailing. I think the room location on the ship is probably more important; away from the noise but close to popular areas.
