I see you can purchase a Carnival Photo Coupon for $15 - and you can get 3 5x7 photos. Is this a good deal? What's the price of them normally if you don't buy the coupon ahead of time - and pay for them on the ship?
Most of the pictures are offered in the 8x10 size, not the 5x7 size. I think we have bought a total of 3 of the smaller size on our 4 cruises because all the formal pictures are printed in the 8x10 and you have to buy that printed one first before you can get any reprints.
Something to think about. Our TA always gets us a $15 photo credit, it is just a $15 credit towards any photo purchase. So they also have those available.
When you embark the ship initially and get off in the ports and they take pics its the 5x7. At the dining room table they do the 5x7. Pics with the various "characters" are also 5x7. On the average we buy about 3-4 of that size in addition to the 8x10, so the $15 coupon could be a good deal.
As just mentioned, there are plenty of photo opportunities to purchase 5x7 pictures. The $15 sounds like a good deal and nice gift to give someone, too. You can pre-purchase them on the Carnival web page under Gifts & Sevices but you must have the Booking Number and all cruise information including cabin number. Also there are Bar coupons, Happy Anniversary packages, etc. Photo's do add up but are a nice souvenir of a great vacation.
