We never buy the ship's photos. They are not very good and way too expensive. :eek: We have the waitstaff take ours at dinner. We have also asked a staff member to take our pic on the dramatic stairway on formal night. Sometimes we exchange picture taking with other pax.The pics taken by them and the other staff have always been better than the ones by the pros....and don't cost extra!
I will say that X doesn't take quite as many photos as RCCL--no pirates in the dining room, lol.
You will have your pics being taken all over the place. There are display racks in the photo area and you can find yours and decide if you want them, take them to the counter and pay for them right then. If you don't want them they ask you to put them in the trash cans provided to make room for the next day's supply.
