I was curious if many of you buy the video that is made while on the cruise.
I didn't but it on the one and only cruise we went on last year (1 year ago this week) but I contacted the video company a couple of weeks ago and received it yesterday. This may sound devious but one of the reasons I sent for the video is to get my DH "in the mood" to book a cruise. We have an event coming up the end of April that could be quite costly and until that is over and we know how much it is going to cost he won't even talk about going on another cruise. Can you tell he is the saver and I'm the spender? :-)
I'll let you know how I make out!
You go Girl! I say use all the resources you have available. All's fair in love and war. He probably wants to go on another cruise but doesn't know quite how to bring it up so as not to make anyone think he wants to spend money. That's okay, you don'tmind taking the blame, do you?

Good for you!! I did buy the video of or Carribean cruise on the Carnival Glory, and I do bring it out to look at. The best thing is that when hubby sees it, he is usually ready to book a cruise!!!!
We don't buy the crusie video that was done on the ship, but the promo one for where we will be going next. We have the ones for Alaska, mexico, carribbean, and Bahams.
I take my own camcorder and tape the family and friends who are crusing with us.
If fact I'm in the market for a smaller one. does any one have a recommendation of a brand,etc?
yes...definitely. I think buying the video takes any pressure of having to record any events of the cruise successfully. My dh and i often bring out our video and long for the seas once more. We are on another crfuise in Aprila nd will probably buy this video as well.
NO, because it is usually DH who is always in the cruise mode, so he waits for me to say something then jumps into action. He and our TA are friends, so they get their heads togehter and before I know it we are booked again!!
My DH is the same way. He doesn't want to spend at all. I just hinted (for 3 weeks straight) that I thought a cruise would be fun again. AS SOON as he said "Well, I guess that wouldn't be a bad idea" *BAAAMM*! I hit the "purchase cruise" button. hee hee I'm so bad!

I HAD to buy the video from our first cruise, on the Conquest. DH was in the hairy chest contest, and although he was "runner-up" he was def. a crowd favorite. I needed to have video proof for those that would never believe he would dance like a Chippendale stripper for a plastic ship on a stick!
