I just got off the Fantasy. It's definitely no photography at all now. And it was very strictly enforced. There was someone at the back of the theater watching. As soon as a video screen appeared, the CM took off towards that person and tapped them on the shoulder. They were literally jogging towards the person as soon as they saw it.

. I have a Benro travel angel tripod that can fold up and fit in my camera bag which I carry on. I usually always have it with me. Regardless I'd still bring a tripod. The last 2 cruises I put it in my suitcase on the last night to lighten the load for the morning trek back to the car.

If your camera had no eye viewer, then you could take pictures AS LONG AS YOUR VIDEO SCREEN IS OFF. (Emphasis is theirs, not mine). In December 2011, the announcement was NO PHOTOGRAPHY.

I believe it's still no photography at the shows.

In February 2012 there was a note on the navigators stating no photography in the shows period. Which was a departure from the usually no flash which was the case in Oct 2011. I'm just speculating here but, there has been a surge of DSLRs that shoot HD video coming to the market. Which would make it tougher to police video recording of the shows.

Nice! And it is strong enough to hold a heavy camera body with a big (heavy) lens?

I have a canon 5DM2 and my older tripod could not handle the weight of that with my 70-200mm lens.

I will be lugging all my camera gear with me on board, but I am thinking about checking the manfrotto tripod in the bag with my luggage. That would just be way to much for me to be lugging around for that long. DH will be carrying the laptop bag and probably a day bag.

Probably for the best anyway - now I can just sit back and relax and enjoy the show instead of snapping away.

The spec sheet lists the load capacity of the travel angel just over 13 pounds. The ball head is quite nice considering it came with the legs.

For extra stability I will hang my camera bag from the hook of the center post.

I have a set of Manfrotto legs that could stand up to a hurricane (kidding) that I rarely use because it is over 5 pounds.

To all you folks who routinely post pics here. My hat is off to you. You have an amazing eye. I just love your shots.

I really hate they no longer allow photography (non-flash) in the shows. I loved having pictures from our last cruise. I don't know what I will put in the scrapbook this time for the shows.

I totally agree. Now, if we could just do something about those light up drinks they sell before the shows.

Took this while snorkeling off of Christmas Island while DCL was stopped in St. Thomas a few weeks ago:
