We tried snorkeling a few cruises ago and are now hooked. Can anyone recommend the best underwater disposable camera to take with us on our next cruise in Sept.

The best disposable camera, IMO, is Fiji.
We have tried all the others. Fiji's disposable has great clarity and color.

I like Fugi as well, only one I've used but it did a great job. Andrea, I like Fiji as well. You can't beat the south Pacific islands. Just teasing ya a little, I have those moments often.

Cheers, Neil

Thanks for keeping me humble Neil! I'm a doofus.

Problem is... my hands type faster than my brain processes. Thanks!

Me too, and that's a problem since I'm not much of a typist!

Neil, I think you type great! Especially after that booking onboard post.

I too like the Fuji cameras.

We only used the Kodak underwater cameras. I didn't know Fuji made them. At least I have not seen them. I will look next time and try them out.

If you want a NON disposable camera for snorking, look for the Olympus digital camera. It is water proof by design. Its lie a $300 camera, but its a great choice for cruising and going to the beach.

Kodak does a decent job and you can catch them on sale at WalMart for $6.

FYI- Fugi cameras (disposable) are on sale this week at Target. I got 2 underwater cameras for 14.00 with tax. Good luck!

I dont know if they still got it, but in a certain big-box store (that is dominating the US retail market), they were selling a Sea-Life underwater camera for around $25. This camera has a yellow body and a silly looking black-plastic crosshairs target scope on top. I don't remember how deep you can go with it, but I am pretty sure it was deeper than just 10 to 15 feet as labeled on the disposible underwater cameras. And this camera uses the regular 35 rolls; so you can open it to change rolls. (But NOT UNDERWATER )

Of course, if you can afford it, I would go for one of the underwater digital cameras. You can take profoundly more photos than with a 35mm film camera (especially if you use a memory card with 2GB or greater). In my situation, I use the Panasonic Lumix FX-01 which has a underwater case sold separately. This underwater case is really expensive but worth it. I could go more than 100 feet underwater with it and have total control of the camera. I think the FX-01 might be obsolete (I don't see it for sale anymore) but I am sure it has a sucessor. I am more than happy with mine.
