What they usually do with the 10 or 20 digital photos is, you will get the CD (all the photos from the cruise) but with only 10 or 20 of the photos unlocked for your access once home.

If it's still the same onboard, the individual photos (prints) cost $19.95 for the 8x10 (formal photos and roving photographers), and $12.95 for the 6x8 (character photos).

You can't get individual digital photos.

Well, I know you can if you purchase the CD onboard. Probably the same with the pre-purchase one, also.

Welcome to Shutters, aboard DCL ....

Always a $ sucker, always will be. Now if the Aquaduck photos worked... then....

Good luck to all.

Fwiw, we choose to purchase onboard, then you know what you are receiving. Of course all packages purchased pre-cruise I'm assuming are refundable. But perhaps not if purchased prior? ? ? In the past IIRC those pre-cruise $ were applied to any current purchases, although no refunds. ? ?

So are they pre-purchased packages refundable in entirety?

TIA

I agree 100% with you...All the pictures are amazing, I like to actually be in them too(my honeymoon looked like my husband went alone). I usually end up not being able to part with any of them and spent a mint on them last year when this was not offered...I am definitely buying the get all package! And I love paying for everything in advance!

Photos

We went on the Disney Wonder to Alaska last summer and signed up for one price for all photos on the first day of cruise. We took advantage of having pictures taken every time we saw a photographer - it was a good deal. Loved the photos. Thanks!!!

I plan on getting the entire package, CD and prints. As several people have posted, the quality is very good and I can be in the picture! I also love the fact that I can pay for this ahead of time.

we got 593 pics on our CD so along with all the prints we feel we got excellent value for $475 as on other lines we've cruised we have had to pay around $25 PER PRINT with no digital options. There was just the 2 of us and it was the 14 night Transatlantic and we had so much fun at all the photo op's.

I agree. OUr first cruise we did not take advantage of all of the photo opportunities and still had a lot of photos (>100). I ended up purchasing 2 individual prints. It was just my husband and me. Others with families had even more photos! For our next cruise I have budgeted in the photo CD with all of the prints. Really that price is cheaper than us getting professional photos at home & you get character photos. The photos taken by shutters were far superior to any photos that I had taken by random people. I love pictures & they are such a personal souvenir.

This is our 3rd cruise and this time I am going to sign up for the whole package. The photographers ARE great and I think they will also do private photo sessions as well, will have to clarify.

The pictures I have bought in the past have been great memories.

$475 for 593 professional pictures is an amazing price its only $1.25 per photo and I will definetly be taking advantage of this on our EBPC cruise next Sept. This could possibly be the last opportunity that I have to get professional pictures taken with my Mom.

I agree 110%. I too, thought the price seemed outrageous until I realized that I pay much more than that for one sitting with a professional photographer at home. We bought the package on our last DCL trip (June 2012) and I cannot be happier with the photos we received. I got a package of over 250 pictures of our family from every possible photo op as well as improptu candid moments at dinner, at the pool, on the beach, etc and WAY MORE photos of my kids doing silly things on the Aquaduck than I could have ever hoped for. The best part was that I didn't have to take photos myself so I was in the moment (and the pictures for once!). I also found that the photographers were more than happy to take requests for certain shots.
The best part is that with the "all your prints" package you could print out as many copies of the photos as you wanted, and they were included in the price. I had copies of my favorites for all of the grand parents AND didn't have to get the kids' annual individual pics (I have fantastic formal and casual shots of each of them as well as several group shots). I wish I was going on a Disney Cruise every year because it was such a great bargain and the kids didn't complain nearly as much as they do when we have to dress up at home and go to a location to have pics taken.

Wondering if the price for pre-purchased photo is the same as the one on the ship, does anyone know? I am interested in purchasing the CD but was gonna wait till we get there, unless it's cheaper to buy it before....

As far as I can tell, the prices are the same as onboard. I think they're just making it so you can pay ahead for these things if you want to.
