Hi Mr/Mrs Giles. I personally believe that there is no correct answer to this question. There are unbelievable sights to see regardless of which side of the ship you are situated. So my advice is simply choose either side but if possible, make sure you're on deck for the trip down the Hudson River because it is a sight that should not be missed - and of course, if you think you may be missing something you can scoot round to the other side. Have a great journey.
Thank you for responding to my question and your advice.
Depends on whether you are cruising into NYC, Brooklyn or Cape Liberty!
I believe we will be arriving at Brooklyn and we have a starboard side balcony cabin.
