Lost memory card

We just got off the Fantasy yesterday. The trip was a dream come true. While on a tour in St. Maarten my memory card in my camera became full but we found an electronics store in Marigot and bought a new one. I put the used one in my container that held money and our IDs and didn't think about it again. While unpacking this morning I realized that the memory card was missing. Obviously I was extremely upset. I called DCL who gave me the phone number for Lost and Found. The person I spoke with didn't think they had it but said she'd check and call me back. About 1/2 hour later I got the phone call it was found on the pier in St Maarten. It must have fallen out when I took money out to buy a souvenir or to take our IDs out. I am so thankful. Pixie dust definitely was good to us. But seriously, if the person who found it and turned it in reads the DISboards, THANK YOU!!!! I am extremely grateful.

Glad you found it. I recently learned a trick (might have even been on these boards). I take the first picture with my name, cell phone and email address and then lock it so it can't be deleted. Kinda just in case I lose the camera or card and somebody honest wants to return it.

WOW! That was very lucky that it was returned to the right ship's lost & found. Maybe they put in in their camera and saw pictures from onboard. So happy for you! I know that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when you think you have lost all your photos. In 2008 I thought that we had lost an 8GB SD card from the first two weeks of our trip to DL & the PC repo. I switched it out the morning we docked in Cartagena. I put the first card in the top drawer next to the closet like I always do with navigators, etc from the cruise. I left that drawer to pack after TWMA the last night, but when I got back to the room it was already empty because DH got a little anxious about us not being packed up. Of course I had no idea what became of the SD card and thought that it went in the camera bag. When we got home I couldn't find it and DH said he hadn't seen it. I called and talked to DCL L&F then set out to collect images from other DISers from the first part of our cruise, sick of our one trip to DL & Universal CA being lost. A month later I went through the suitcases in the extra room before putting them in the attic. I found a bunch of streamers from the shows in the front zippered pocket of one. In one handful of confetti was the SD card!

Our family actually found a blue memory card in St. Marteen that we turned in to Guest Services. Was it yours?

I'm guessing they were the only ship in port that day - that was the case with us on the 5/4 Eastern.
