That is why the CM on the maiden told me they had to enter the room number after they saw the previous raft pass the camera on their video screen.

We just got off the Fantasy yesterday (9/29 sailing) and the camera was working. Pictures showed up in our digital file, but were not printed unless we requested it (and paid for it). Not all of our pictures showed up; only some of me and my son and none of my husband and son. When we learned it was all done by facial recognition, we did our best to do our most regular smiles, eyes open, so that we "matched" our regular photos as much as possible. It worked! We got about four different shots.

We used it a few times. My wife made sure that she put in our cabins for the kids.There was 1 or 2 days that I do remember it being out but I know it worked(in theory anyway) several times we were up there.

They never said anything to us about not using that one and the CM using the one on their side. I think at 1 point they may have said wait until the raft is a certain distance but I honestly dont remember.

It seems to be hit or miss as to whether that computer is up and running.

It seems odd to me that the Fantasy is having issues with this,6 months later, but the Dream apparently is not.
