Default Question for picture takers

Do any of you know if the Dawn has a way to download camera cards to cd? I have seen a device on other cruises, but never used it.

Miss Vicki takes LOTS of pictures but I don't really feel like bringing the laptop along (you know, the trying to get away from work thing).

Thanks in advance

Yes they do it for you for a price. Quite frankly, its far cheaper to buy a 2 or 4 gig memory card ( wont run you more than 50$ for a 4 gig now a days) and in the long run will save you money as you wont pay for them to put the pics on CD for you. I just bought 2-2 gig cards for 39.99 Canadian funds.

or if u have a phone that will accept memory cards you can email them to yourself or use the internet time you can purchase to do the same just bring a twenty dollar card reader. **************BEWARE*************
that cell phones at sea charges for sending emails etc get very expensive,I had a $1300 phone bill for our new years cruise.

Default Thanks for the ideas

I had considered another flash card, and it it is probably a better idea than trying to keep a cd safe.

And thanks for the warning on the cell charges, I will make sure to leave it off except for the one or two pics i may take with it, for the whole week.
I still want to avoid the work thing, and that will be a good reason for them not to call me!





Next Cruise

You can turn it on to load your pics.
It takes a few more steps and dollars to connect to the internet.

Wife and I enjoyed a couple drinks while reviewing the days pics.
