It will shine on the port side. The expression 'posh' comes from 'port out, starboard home', and was the recommended cabin assignment for Brits travelling to India in colonial days, in order to stay away from the hot sunny side of the ship. You're going the other way, so only go 'posh' if you want to be on the sunny side!
