The prints are the ones they print out and have on display. If you're buying the CD and prints (hard copy), you pick up the prints and give them to the Shutters staff. They put it in your cabin folder. At the end of the cruise, you pick up the whole packet of photographs and the CD of digital images will be available either in the last evening or just before you disembark.

Make sure you read all the fine print....

The prints are ONLY ones they have on display. They do NOT include every picture taken of you on display. The photo book does NOT include all pictures taken of you either. The disk does not include any pics taken off ship. So, purposely, certain groups of pics (ie off the boat, etc...) are missing from each package. I would believe that this is intended for people to buy every single package they have which is the only way to get every pic.

I read the fine print on every page through that darn picture website (yep took long, agonizing). When I realized that, ultimately you had to get the album and disk to truly get all pics, I had a sour taste in my mouth because I feel that is a creepy thing to do to people. I am sure many people don't know that because you figure that a disk of all pics is truly a disk of all pics, and it is not.

On the website it says...

that they do not print every picture. This isn't coming from me, it is stated in fine print on the website. If you think about it, it makes sense because to print and display every pic from everyone on board, oh my! I'm just letting you know what the site says because I thought about this as well and now, no way. Obviously they can print what you want but you pay per pic, but if you buy the print package, not all pics are included, just the ones they decided to print and display, (as per site). Actually all of the fine print and purposeful leaving groups of pics out of every package so people buy more than one package to get all the prints really doesn't sit well with me.

Ok...I just got off the Magic at the end of July and this was my 4th cruise. We did the CD and prints deal. We got EVERY photo that was taken on the CD and EVERY photo was printed off. Even the crappy photos were printed off. Even the photos taken off the ship were printed out and on the CD.

We did this 2 years ago and again, every photo was on the CD including many taken on excursions. We also did this a few years ago on our first cruise. Nothing was excluded.

They even managed to print photos from a corrupted memory card. The photos never got printed but they showed up on the kiosk when they finally recovered them from the card. When I asked about them, they told me to just go to the kiosk and ask for a "reprint"....and since I was getting the "unlimited package", there would be no charge, despite what the kiosk said. Good to their word, I got the printed photos in my bunch of hard copies...AND it was on the CD.

I'm not reading their website but speaking from experience. Every time we've done this, we've had all the photos on the CD and printed. If they weren't on the CD or the kiosk (you need to make sure everything is there by periodically checking the kiosks), it's usually because their facial recognition software hasn't worked or there's been a mistake....but you rectify that by telling the Shutters staff and they find it and fix it.

So reading through more on their terms & conditions, it appears if I buy the CD for my stateroom, they will add the kid's stateroom for free because they are less than 21 (sorry, can't post the link right now to the FAQ). You have to do this once you get onboard. (My kids are in an adjoining room with my mother aka built in babysitter). It also says that large families can get additional CDs for 50% off (as PP posted). I'm curious to know if that's true, cause then i can split the cost with family & this makes this a phenomal bargain for a 7-day cruise.

Smile Prepaid photos: Photobook plus all pictures incl disk

Hello,

I am a little confused on the Photobook plus the FREE photodisk. Supposedly, it is an on-line only offer. I am looking to go ALL OUT and get the Photobook + all pics + disk. However, if the disk comes FREE with the photobook, does the disk ONLY contain the photos in the photobook or ALL photos of the cruise. In other words, can I save money by just purchasing the Photobook + ALL Photos...and get the disk FREE (which would contain ALL Photos).

I think it would save $50.

Does anyone know how this works?

Thanks, Charles

I'd love to find out about this as well. My two kids are each in a different room with a grandparent so 3 rooms. We have a group of 6 cabins all together though so I'm wondering about this deal.

I believe I read that the CD included with the photo book is only stock DCL pictures (the ship and various venues onboard). Not the actual photos of the people buying it.

And the regular CD does include all photos take by Shutters photographers (except for special group/family sittings set up with the Shutters group).

Personally, I am going by the website. Perhaps you got lucky. I would hate to think I received all picks only to find out I didn't. The site says specifically that off ship pics are only included in the photo book, not the cd. Again, that is as per the site.

So in order to get photos of you and your family (traveling party, etc) on CD, you have to go with the $229.95 option? I'm not really interested in prints or photo book. I just want digital copies and printing rights to photos of me and my family/traveling party.

Some one reported (sorry, can't remember who) that the photo CD included with the photobook is stock photos from DCL (ship, characters, venues onboard, etc), not the photo CD with actual photos of guests.

I don't think I got lucky 3 times ... if so, I should be buying lottery tickets. Because that's how many times I've bought the CD.

Where on the website does it say that Shutters excludes excursion photos?

Talking Has anyone purchased the photobook? Is it worth it?

I realize if you order online you get the free photobook CD with the photobook. Is this worth getting? If I purchase online, can I still decline the entire package once on board and get a FULL refund?

Also, what is the quality of the Photobook? For $149, it better be a quality product!

Thanks, Charles
