Alaska cruise on Celebrity Solstice

Going on Alaska cruise in July. Please advise, departing and returning from Seattle. Which side of the ship has the best viewing/advantages, starboard or port? Also, are higher decks preferred ? Not familiar with the ship or Alaska! Thank you for providing your help.

Higher decks are balcony decks. Is this what you mean? We always opt for a balcony and especially for Alaska its nice to have.

I can't say if one side or another is better. We had no issues though I don't recall what side we were on.

We were on a sister ship of the Solstice and it, the Equinox was the nicest ship we've ever been on.

Cheers, Larry

As you're doing a round trip, the side is not terribly important as you'll be returning on more or less the same route. I suppose I'd opt for the starboard side as it will be the one facing Vancouver Island (as opposed to open ocean) as you sail northward.
