Photos at Shutters

Can't find much on the Disney website about Shutters - how much do the photos cost and are there any packages? Any way to get discounts ? I know how PhotoPass works at Disney World but I know this is a different company. Thanks, Debbie

Here is a price list for a 7 night cruise, the 10 & 20 photo packages are the same prices on all cruises, the CD varies based on length of cruise:

are these prices for all 4 ships? im planning a cruise on the Fantasy in 2014, and would like to get an idea on how much to save up for it. I know the prices will probably change a bit before then, but it cant hurt to get an idea.

These prices are pretty much the same as they've been since we started cruising in 2008. The only changes have been the 6X8 went from $9.95 to $12.95 recently, and the 10 & 20 photo packages were revamped.

Those are the prices for 7 nights. The unlimited CD is cheaper for shorter sailings since you have fewer photo opportunities.

The book sounds interesting. I've read it only allows 34 pictures though.

I bought the unlimited CD in 2009 for $399 (did not get prints included for that price back then) and while everyone says it is crazy, for professional photographs which I can do with what I want (I made lots of prints and used them in a photo book), it was the best souvenir I've ever bought. But I love photos.

The price list posted above is current for the Fantasy (as of a couple of weeks ago). While it can certainly be hard to think about paying that much for photos, they are usually very good and better than using your own camera. Having said that, we used our own camera for virtually every character greeting and they were good, so we limited outselves to the 10-photo package and picked photos that were truly unique (e.g., pirate night; group shop just before getting on the ship; etc.).

If you are planning ahead and expecting to maximize your Shutters photo opportunities, then I would suggest that you take every possible photo you can. We got quite a few but didn't feel like we were necessarily taking every opportunity, and our Shutters folder was still jam-packed. Over the course of seven days, you could have that thing so full that it would absolutely be worth the money just to buy them all. Plus, virtually all the Shutters photos have relevant borders added to them, which makes them a little neater than just the self-made shots. I guess it's all in what you're wanting to budget for. If you're a photo buff, then go for it!

I wish I had planned ahead for our last cruise, because there are some photos I would have LOVED to have. Thats why im planning on finding out how much it is now, and put that money aside for it. What different picture oppertunities were there on the Fantasy besides the obvious ones?

It is nice that the 10 and 20 packages can be on a disc now as well. It's makes it much more affordable if you only have a few pics you want because we hardly use prints.

Hey SHUTTERS - A shout out to you on this subject...

I purchased the 10 photo CD because that was all our budget would allow after our 15 day Disney vacation in October. Since ALL of our photos were included on the CD & we could only "unlock" 10 of them you should be able to find a way to sell additional digital photos to people shortly after they arrive home & catch up on all of the bills.

I would have liked to have been able to even purchase 11 or 12 photos instead of 10 & I didn't even have 20 photos taken. Instead you missed out on any additional money you could have made from us by not allowing a few more photos than 10 or allowing us to purchase other photos after we returned home. When I got home I had other family members that would have liked to pay to purchase additional photos of us, but since you don't have a system that allows people to make additional purchases you missed out on more $$$ from us. Seems like you would want to take my money any way that you can get it.

Ideally Disney would take over the photos on their cruise line & offer "Photopass" as they do in the parks. That would be awesome!!!

Anyone else feel this way?

When I sailed on the Magic in August of this year, I pre-purchased a photo package from the DCL website before sailing. I forget the specifics but it was a better deal than anything being offered on-board.

Photo packages are no longer a pre-cruise purchase option. You can only buy them onboard.

I agree with Melissa- I really wish this was operated by Disney and part of PhotoPass - many people combine a Disney World vacation with a cruise and it would be so nice to have it all as one for making calendars and books. Debbie

AFAIK, the only photo packages are the ones on the list I posted. When the Fantasy entered service the Shutters packages were changed. I haven't seen any of the the mixed size packages since then.

When you purchase the 10 or 20 photo package, you get just that - 10 or 20 pictures. You can opt for either printed photos (sizes are pre-determined), so you may wind up with 6X8 (character photos) and 8X10 (formal night, dining room, etc photos). Or you can get the 10 or 20 photos option on the CD. You receive the same full cruise CD, but only 10 or 20 photos will be "unlocked" for you to access once home. Those you could print out whatever size you want.
