Strangely enough your explanation, although it fits in this case, was not the reason for POSH. Sure it was Port out Starboard home but was invented because of the lack of air conditioning in the ships taking passengers to India and the cooler side was the northern side of the ship so going to India one stayed, if one could afford it, on the northern side which happened to be the Port side and Vici Versa on the way back from India. A premium was charged for these sides therefore it was only those with money or a prominent position who could afford it....hence posh people. Regards. ....Neil.

I agree Port side!! We did same trip on QM2 in May 2006 and had balcony stateroom. We unfortunately had a force 10 storm so didn't get to use balcony at all or even go out on deck for most of trip until we reached NY when we rose early and stood on our balcony to enter NY harbour. It was a fabulous trip though and such a beautiful ship. Great memories.

My Getaway on Getaway

We had a lovely couple of days sightseeing and used the hop ...

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
