So you're OK with the lady ahead of you at Shutters getting a CD with 5 different rooms on it, but you can't get the extra room with Grandma & Grandpa in it on your CD?
I doubt that they would say no to the very next person in that situation.

Youre turning one person's Magical Moment where a CM did something nice for them, into a nightmarish scene of entitled jerks all demanding special treatment.

And honestly, Id rather them get one CD instead of 5. Data adding takes a few seconds, burn time takes way longer. In that situation, I believe the CMs were helping the greater good.
Didnt someone say theres a limited run of CDs per trip? Why waste 5% of the total trip disc volume on mostly duplicate images?

Anyway.

The limited run of CDs was only on the extended 2-week cruise, specifically stated to be because of the higher number of images. So apparently data addition IS more effort than just burning, because there were less people on board than normal.

Also, those four discs they didn't sell because of that Magical Moment? Lost them $800-$1600 in revenue (depending solely on cruise length) because there is a limited number of people onboard who are going to buy CDs. It's not a fluid demand like a shoreside retail store that would allow them to make up the lost revenue later.

So yes, I do believe that they would say no to the next person in line, and that there are plenty of people on this board who will use stories like this one to cause a stink for future Shutters CMs by expecting such deals instead of simply hoping for the pixie dust.

I actually found all the prices in the DCL site! If you go into your booking, and then go to the section where you can buy gifts for your staterooms, there's a photo package section, and it gives the prices! I think for a 3 night cruise it was $129 for a 39 page scrap book!
