I have always had some issues with photography onboard, simply with the way it's handled. I would like to see an opt out path, as you get ready to board. No thankyou and walk along the side, onto the ship. Getting off in port,with it's bottleneck can be slow sometimes.
Within the past few years I have seen the formal set ups in the most odd places, like very close to the dining room, with people waiting for pictures, and, waiting for dinner..you just shake your head and ???? There has to be a better way.
Don't get me started on the pirate and the parrot at the dinner table,and when some of us opt out, and, say no thanks..we have had some smirks....just smile .
