This photo is looking toward the stern. You can see the Main Deck passageway to the left and the stairs up to Upper Deck to the right. The expedition team and crew spend a lot of time going up and down the stairs of the ship. Oftentimes, because you make lefts and rights as you descend into the ship, it's takes a moment to think about whether you are facing aft or forward in a cabin or if you are on the port or starboard of the ship.
