We usually take a bunch of disposable ones, but this time, thinking of taking our own. What do you do?

I took both. My disposible ones were underwater cameras.

we also take both a real good one for use on the ship, and disposable for the beaches, that way we do not have to worry, about it walking or sand getting into it. This has alway worked great for us.

I normally take the disposables because we have the same fears of it getting damaged or lost. Plus it is an extra thing to put in the carry on. I would not want to check it.

Ultimately, the only power to which a man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.

we did digital 100% for our cruise and although i DID get sand in the shutter on the beach and had to pay to clean it, it was TOTALLY worth it because the pictures came out SO CLEAR! plus, my digital camera had a setting for taking "action" shots so the pictures we took on the tenders or driving around weren't blurry. i might pop for a disposable for the next trip to the beach but i'd go with digital the rest of the time for sure!

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.

I always take my digital camera. It's a Canon SD series. It's small enough to fit into your short's front pocket and it takes truly amazing pictures.

We love to snorkel and I tried using disposable cameras for our underwater pictures but they always came out horrible. I ended up buying an underwater casing for my Canon and now take it underwater or to the beach without any worries. And the pictures? They come out so good that people have told me to blow them up and frame them.

We took our digital, disposable and camcorder on the last one.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

If you take a good camera, get one of these! I plan on taking my Canon Digital Rebel everywhere I go. The otterbox was the best insurance you can get for your camera when traveling.

They have them for PDA's, iPods, etc... Go to otterbox.com for more info.
Can't wait to go on my first cruise!
