Default Carnival webcam

I wonder why Carnival's webcams are always down. This has been a problem for so long, you would think they would fix them by now.

Besides Magic, Splendor also seems to be working.

I think the problem is that no one shipboard every checks the webcams so they don't know when they are out.

Plus the depend on the Internet connection, and on the computer sending the pics being connected to the network. So many variables...

I've been trying to watch the Carnival Dream and being that it's so new, I thought it would be one that works. Seems like last year it worked better, but it could be my imagination.

The cameras almost never fail and if the ship Internet goes down, it usually isn't for very long. I think Carnival let the contact expire with the company on land that was hosting the pictures and that is part of the problem. They are either shopping for a new partner and/or negotiating with the old one. When it comes to contracts, Carnival takes their time until they get exactly the deal they are looking for.

That makes sense Zydecocruiser, you're probably right.
