Default photo - burn cd from memory card?

Can the ship's photo ship burn a cd from my digital camera memory card, like they do at Walgreen's and if so, what's the cost?

Taken from the FAQ section on Carnival website; it appears only on select ships; see below in bold. They don't mention the costs... it wasn't available on the ships that I recently sailed with them.

How much are photos on board?

The Ship's Photographers take both candid and posed shots all during the cruise. The photos are then put on display, usually the very next day, and are available for purchase (with a Sail & Sign Card), prices vary by size. Special requests can be made by appointment and are available for a fee. Film is available in the Duty-Free shops for purchase.

One-day developing service is available for the following types of film. Drop-off boxes are located at the Photo Gallery:
35mm film
Disposable cameras


Panorama and APS Advantix Film can be processed on select ships; check with the Photo Manager for details.

Developing film onto a CD (select ships: Spirit Pride Conquest Legend Glory).

Developing film onto a CD (select ships: Spirit Pride Conquest Legend Glory).

They are not developing any film. Just making a CD/DVD from a memory card.

I don't know if that statement applies or not.

There was a kiosk like machine set up on the Ecstasy where it was clear one could put memory cards in and see/print images. We didn't use it but we did note that it was a nice addition. Likely there was a cost involved, sorry we didn't get any details.

Save the money and do it when you get home instead. You can change the names of the pics if you do it your self. I had a 8 in 1 card reader on my old computer (as well as the cables for the camera) and I changed all the titles of the pics so I know what they are years from now. I have the phots burned to uhm, five different discs, just in case....ok, so two of them were rescued from the old computer, but one can never be too safe. I can always show off my pics to people at work cuz I got one disc at work!!! (Work is the best place to keep data back ups in case if a disaster at home).





I hope the tickers worked this time....

Next question,

How big of a memory card do you need, want, or gotta have? If you are going on a 7-day cruise and plan to take lots of pics...are you bringing several memory cards....if so what size?

I hve a 2 gig memory card and at the middle of the 3 resolution settings it will hold approx 2550 photos. I also have 2 256-meg cards. If I set the 2 gig card to lo resolution, which I may do for close ups, I can get 13,000 photos on it. Since I will mostly be doing photos but also a bunch of quick 5-second video shots, I think I'll be covered. however, I'm a huge shutterbug so I'm planning to buy another 2 gig before the trip.

Someone on this board recommended using a few smaller memory cards, so if the camera is lost or stolen, your photos are not! Makes sense to me.

ClevelandRocks is correct about several smaller cards. I have had sd cards go bad for some reason. I was not able to get any info off of it. Now I use several smaller cards, or my portable hard drive and download each day. just another way to do the same thing.
Good Luck
Gary

I am considering bringing my laptop so I can download the photos every day, ensuring they are backed up. And the camera (very small, thin and lightweight) is going to be in my pocket or shoulderbag. Not likely to get lost.

My wife has two 2.0 gig cards and she did not fill one up! We are taking all photos we have and all the ones that the group we had and putting them on one CD. Then I am going to make slide show and a DVD with music! When you get back you can download your photos rename them, crop them and clean them up!

I have a cheap laptop that I bought on ebay just for this type of travel so I can backup my pictures. All you need is a real cheap laptop and a 2 GB USB drives (About $30). Between the laptop and the camera memory I have a real good backup, good way to document my trip, and don't too much if it gets stolen.

several of the ships we have been on have a kiosk where you can burn pics to a CD, we paid $9.99 in 2005 when we were having problems with our camera midway through the vacation, better safe than sorry but now we take the laptop. Realistically if $9.99 was the cost of having my photos safe from a bad memory card, it's 10 bucks well spent.

Better yet, send them to people who own DVD players. The photos will appear on your TV screen and an entire room full of people can view them at once. At the first prompt, select "JPEG". That's the file format of the photos and just press the next button on the remote to cycle through the photos. This may not work on some of the very cheap DVD "player only" units but it does on MOST.
