Hi - I'm asking a lot of questions because we are leaving in two weeks and I am just getting time to do my homework on this cruise. I have a digital camera with a 512 card. I can take about 300 photos at the pixels I like. I am wondering if in the Internet cafe you can take a CD and download photos off the card - or if the photo department does this for a fee. Another thing is does anyone know if the cards can be damaged going through security? I have not been on a trip since I got this camera. Thanks.

As with us, we are new to digital cameras. On our last flight the security people assured us that the cards are safe. Both our 512 and 1 gig cards made it through no problem.

On our last cruise we were still using film. I am sure that you could have a CD burned for a nominal fee at the photo center. Also, one could have the same done on shore at a photo lab. Would be interested to hear from others about the exact CD fee on NCL.

I took a small 20 gig. hard disk made for this purpose.
It is called FotoChute, made by Smartdisk.
Dimensions - 3" x 2.5" x 0.75". It has 2 USB sockets, one to connect to camera, one for uploading to PC.
There are two models, one with LCD, the other without. The LCD is for monitoring transfer status and capacity, not for viewing pictures. The better model was $247 with battery charger in Canada. A bit expensive, but we came back with almost 1000 photos at between 3 and 4 megs each. When uploaded on to computer, erase pictures from portable drive and start again.

Hello everybody,

I have an X'S-Drive VP2160 image tank which cost approx. US$ 200 including a 40 GB harddisk half a year ago. Works very well for me, and it is also possible to use it as an external HDD.

Bridgette, If I remember it right, on the Star, the photo department would perform these services for your personal camera. I would call NCL and ask if this is the case on the ship you'll be sailing on-Hope this helps-Happy Cruising!

We brought our laptop and had a wonderful time downloading the photos each night onto the laptop and then labelling them.

Hello all. On the Norwegian Dream last week the internet cafe would download your pictures from a card to a CD for 19.95 US$

Thanks Pacman,

Could you tell me if there was a special for a second copy? Any restrictions or limits we should be aware of? Do you know if you can combine downloads, as we will have 3 different cameras with 3 different card formats?

I would urge you to take a laptop with you in that instance, as the cost to download would be 0. Donnar made a great point. It is very difficult to remember each shot after you get home but if you download every night and name the shots, it is much easier.

I use my notebook for:
Pictures: I download every day
Music: I bring speakers for my Itunes and play "Shuffle" the entire cruise.
Work: I can get more accomplished on a cruise than anywhere else.
Entertainment: I bring movies, just in case of inclement weather.
Communication: on most cruises, Wi-fi is available. I use SKYPE (http://www.SKYPE.com) to stay in touch.

I could go on, but now I am embarrassed.
