After being on a few cruises the photo thing gets a little lame - we seem to by fewer each cruise. DH only has the one suit - he just changes the tie every cruise - so it's wearing thin as far as photo ops go.
Why don't the ships offer real old time photos of what life was like circa the Titanic and all those old liners. The costumes slip on in moments so time wouldn't really be a factor - you stand in line for a while anyway. Old fashioned swimsuits, sailor suits, old uniforms, roaring twenties outfits - well you get the picture (literally ). The backdrop could be the deck of an old ship too.
Just an idea - we get these photos done a lot on holidays - and they are fun. They also make great Christmas card photos for those of us who don't take themselves too seriously lol.

I know what you mean. DH finally bought a new suit, different color, and the pictures looked great. They offered something like you suggested on our last cruise and the waiting line was long. They also had casual photos; couples, familes....sitting on the ground, back to back or similar poses with different props, very cool and black and white photos. These all came out very nice.
