As I posted in my personal experience example above, pictures of JUST the person who is not a part of the immediate parent+minor children family purchasing the CD for the primary stateroom will NOT be on the CD. Any photos of the Mom or Dad or Son or Daughter, or any combination thereof, that also happens to have Grandma in them, WILL be included on the CDnot because she is Grandma, but because of the other person being assigned to that account that purchased the CD. A total stranger could photobomb the picture and if it has anyone else in it authorized for that CD, it will be on the CD.

Also, Daughter being assigned to the CD is NOT automatic; you have to go to Shutters and point out that she belongs to Mom and Dad and not Grandma. Otherwise she will be attached to Grandma's stateroom for picture buying purposes.

I wish they would change it so you could add another family stateroom for a discount. If me, my parents and my boyfriend travel in two separate rooms, we have to pay for two discs. If two parents and four children travel in two staterooms, they only have to pay for one disc. My parents and I are still a nuclear family!

I see why they do this, but in practice there are flaws.

But you are in a different stateroom because you are an adult who wants your own space. That's not a flaw. If there's only four of you, you could absolutely stay in one stateroom together and pay for one CD. You and your boyfriend are your own family now that you are grown up. The parents+minor children is because the minor children cannot book a room of their own without an adult present in the room.

Adding other families at a discount means anyone could claim another family just by linking together (as huge numbers of DISers do for dining) to abuse the system for the discount. Dining doesn't cost DCL or Shutters money. Discounts on merchandise does.

What kind of arrangements do you need to make? We have two cabins booked, I'm in one with DD#1 and DH is in another with DD#2. Do we just tell them to join the accounts?

I don't know how they do it exactly. You just go to the Shutters desk and explain who is in which cabin related to which cabin is buying the CD, and they do it in their system. As long as it is parents+minor children only, they should do it. Doublecheck the sheet of picture thumbnails you get when you pick up your CD to make sure they did it correctly, because the kiosk can sometimes be inaccurate (as a PP experienced).

Thanks. It is just us, so hopefully it isn't an issue and we can get all of the pictures on one CD.

This is good to know as DH, myself and our four children are spread across two cabins.

But where does it end? Another room that has an adult brother of yours and his girlfriend? Yet another one with an adult cousin who is like a brother or sister to you? How about a whole ship full of people on a family reunion cruise? IMHO, their policy is entirely fair now and makes sense the way it is.
