Last I knew, $249.95. Plus $50.00 if you wish all the photos printed as well.

I guess it depends on how many photos you plan on having taken.

It is prorated.

7 night $349.95; 4 night $299.95; 3 night $249.95.

It's a set cost for a set number of days.

It's not really very fairly pro-rated...less than half the days of a 7 night cruise, but only $100 less doesn't seem right.

I've been playing around on the new website the Shutters company has up now. I'm not sure if it's the same price onboard, but pre-paying for the CD with all pictures through mycruisephotos.com is $229 for both a 3-day and 4-day cruise. Prints add-on is still $50. I will definitely be doing this when our January cruise becomes available for pre-purchase.

Where are all of the photo opportunities that would justify such a high cost? I know there is in the main atrium but where else?

We boarded the dream with expectations of getting the cd for a 4 day cruise. Price was 249. However there just were not many photos. I was used to CCL and RCCL that take pics like crazy. But we had maybe 5 photo ops. We bought 2 photos of what we did get. Def glad we didn't prepay for the cd.

There's multiple sittings in the atrium, both for character greetings and posed family portraits. We've done 4-5 sittings in a single night before. The photographers also take candid shots around the pool deck and on Castaway Cay in addition to the scheduled character stops on the island.

We've gotten the CD on every cruise we've been on, including a 2-nighter, and never regretted it. But we also do a lot more photo ops than just 5. Especially given what we would pay a professional on land for portraits, and for only one sitting, it's a great deal.

We are taking a 3 day on the Dream and plan to buy the CD I just hope it's worth it. We are a sucker for pics and figure this is the best way to go. I am pleased to hear the price since I was told it cost $350. They must of been on the longer cruise.

As well as roving photographers in the MDRs (and Palo, I think). Plus, I've read where the characters make appearances in the kids clubs, sometimes (with photographers).

And you can have multiple shots taken at the locations (well, within reason, it's not a private session).

And possibly AquaDuck photos if functioning. Check kiosk.

We can only hope they will offer AquaDunk photos too, on the new Magic.
