As someone who has just started planning a wedding on the Carnival Conquest for May 2008 some of these post scare me quite a bit. The earthrise post helps. Obviously pictures are an important part of every wedding and as someone who is a photographer for a community newspaper, its an area I am (and will be) pretty critical of. I understand that Carnival requires the use of one of their photographers (which I think is pretty lame.) Did anyone have an experience where the Carnival photographer objected to guests taking pictures?
