Not at all. I usually don't buy pictures on board anyway.

I think it would be a great option for passengers when they return home for say 1 month availability when maybe past passengers will have more funds available to purchase them.

Since they are digital it would be nice to at least review them on the shipboard CCTV system - if not on-line from home. I guess they are afraid of people pulling them off a website + they lose some of the chance to do the upsell, though many options could be offered online as well.

We usually like to buy a photo on our cruises but only if we like it. I hate searching for us amongst the crowds.

i do like the idea of being able to sift thru your pictures at your own time and not have to fight the crowds at the photo stations, but the cruise lines are counting on you to impulse buy and to be affected by the others around you, so i don't think it will happen anytime soon

I read elsewhere that P&O-UK are doing a CD with pics on....now if that was reasonable & all the photos taken were there + maybe a bit of stock (actual would be too much to hope for) footage of the cruise, I think most would be happy.
Some answer questions...I also question answers

I think it would be a good idea. Maybe somebody would change their mind and wish that they had that bording photo afterall. Or maybe they have a film camera and accidentally ruined their photos and would like a few for reminders. They do charge too much so we don't purchase.
Photo sites put watermarks on the site so you can't try to steal the photos. When you purchase you'll get the "clean" version.

I think that would be awesome! I love photos, and we can't always afford to buy all the ones we liked during the cruise. I always think about how much waste there is after the cruise from unpurchased photos. Seems to me they could use monitors or a system to search for your photos my room number or something. Definately would be interested in a CD with all the photos as well!
