Did You Know?

"The term "Posh" is sometimes said to have its roots as an acronym for "Port Out, Starboard Home", referring to the idea that on ships bound from Europe to the Far East and back, the land-side cabins were more desirable. While the origins of the word are dubious, it does serve as a useful mnemonic device."

It has something to do about the sun not being on the Port Side Out and the Starboard side coming home. Port Out Starboard Home was the most expensive tickets for that trip.
