POSH is actually an acronym that evolved at the turn of the 20th century when the English were traveling frequently to India. Wealthy [and pragmatic] passengers would choose cabins on the Port side of the ship traveling from England to India and the Starboard side for the return trip. This kept them safely out of the blistering sun while making the 30-plus day journey.Tickets were stamped P.O.S.H. (Port Out Starboard Home) and people began using the acronym as a word to describe luxury travel and elegant accomodations.
