This is my first cruise to Alaska. We are considering Infinity from Vancouver on July 9,2006. One member of our group feels that the balcony state rooms on the starboard (right side) of the ship are preferable going north. I have done extensive research and discussions with the previous cruisers to AK.I am informed that this is not true for a cruise through inside passage as the nature and scenery is on both sides to enjoy, so starboard or port (left side) does not rellay make any difference. I will greatly appreciate if any of you, who have cruised the inside passage previously give me information. I am looking forward for this trip to be a unique and life time experience and want to get the best out of it. I welcome all suggestions. Thanks.
