Don't think they have CD burners on the computers on board, but you could check. Sounds like you are going to have to buy a new memory card!

Yes. You will have to purchase another larger memory card. There are no such items on board. They won't even download your pictures to a disk for you. You might be able to find a place in one of your ports that could do that. No promises of that though. Your best bet would be to go ahead and purchase another memory card so you won't be disappointed!

I am not sure how your camera works, are camera came with an output RCA cable that allowed hool up to a tv RCA input. We were able to view our photos as we went and deleted the "bad ones". Yes I agree with everyone, buy more memory cards, usually they are on sale in Sunday's paper if you watch for them. My camera originally was set up for 32-64 size memory card. I found the firmware site and was able to get a software patch that allows camera to now handle 128 size cards. Something worth looking into. Don't forget the battery charger for camera (If its lithium type, if not plenty of extra batteries to always have on hand.)

CD burners require attention at the hands of some unskilled with computers. Hence, the internet cafe's do not have them. Spend the bucks to get a bigger memory card or take a laptop of your own. That way you can edit your photos on the day at sea and come homw with a set ready for printing.

Some of the newer ships are doing this. ie: burning your pix to cd, however they are still few and far between. The new Caribbean Princess even will print your pix from your memory card. It's coming, but not yet here on most of the ships. I can't imagine that the new Carnival ships don't have this capability yet. (We sailed on the Pride last year, but I don't remember if they were digital in their photo shop or not) In any case, the memory is not too expensive, so go ahead and buy some just to be safe. Good luck, and happy sailing.

A solution from the Carnival website:

NEW SELF-SERVICE DIGITAL PHOTO PRINTING KIOSKS INTRODUCED ABOARD CARNIVAL’S ‘FUN SHIPS’

New Technology Part of Line’s Fleetwide Multi-Million-Dollar Digital Photo Upgrade


Carnival Cruise Lines has introduced new self-service digital photo printing kiosks providing a convenient and cost-effective way for guests to download and print their digital vacation photos while sailing aboard the “Fun Ships.”* *

The new system, adapted for the shipboard environment by San Marcos, Texas-based Pixel Magic, a leader in digital photo technology, is currently on several ships and expected to be expanded fleetwide by the end of the year.

Pixel Magic’s iStation 150 photo printing kiosks are located near the ships’ photo galleries.*To print their photos, guests simply insert the memory card from their digital camera into a card reader located within the stand-alone printing kiosk. After selecting photo size and quantity, the images are then printed in a matter of seconds on high quality digital photo paper using Pixel Magic’s latest MegaPixel III printers.*

Guests can also customize their photos with colorful borders, backgrounds and other features. To pay for the photos, guests simply swipe their “Sail & Sign” shipboard credit card and the amount is charged to their account.

“With the growing popularity of digital cameras, we wanted to provide a fast, competitively priced means for guests to download and print their cherished memories from their ‘Fun Ship’ cruise vacation. The new Pixel Magic system offers all this and more, while providing a value-added service to our guests, who enjoy the most convenient and sophisticated photo services at sea,” said Bob Woodry, Carnival’s vice president of photo and communication services.

The new Pixel Magic self-service photo printing kiosks are the most recent additions to Carnival’s multi-million-dollar fleetwide digital photo conversion.*The upgrade includes state-of-the-art professional Olympus E-1 digital cameras – the first such cameras ever employed on cruise ships – and the full line of Olympus retail cameras, as well as the cruise industry’s fastest digital photo labs developed in tandem by Carnival and KonicaMinolta.

Also new is a photo-retrieval kiosk currently being beta-tested on the Carnival Pride’s seven-day cruises from Long Beach, Calif.*The new system – the first of its kind in the cruise industry – utilizes ImageWare Systems, Inc.’s innovative “facial recognition technology.”*Developed in conjunction with Carnival, the technology matches a guest’s likeness with stored “Fun Ship” vacation photos shot by the ship’s photographers and displays the images on the computer screen for review and purchase.*

Carnival has also expanded the photo accessories sold on board its ships to include ScanDisk digital memory cards.

I may be stating the obvious, but I recommend bringing a laptop computer. I'm assuming you don't have one, but if you know someone well enough to borrow theirs, do it. Whenever you get back to ship- dump the photos to the laptop, recharge batteries, and then you're good to go for more photos.

On my Destiny cruise I took (literally) 1500 pics. I just took tons and then weeded out the ones I didn't want to keep later.
