Default Lost Camera On Emerald Princess

We lost our camera on our last night at sea on the Emerald Princess Eastern Caribbean Voyage E003 sailing 01/10-01/17 out of Ft. Lauderdale.
It was a small silver Canon Powershot. It's not so much the camera, but the hundreds of pictures on the SIMM card that we can't replace. If you found it, please contact me so that we can get back some of the memories we lost.

We left behind a cell phone in Dec on the Ruby & I sent an email. We just received a letter last week that everything finally was checked from that voyage & although they didn't fine our phone at least they do check.

I'm so sorry you lost your camera. I hope someone found it and turned it in and it will find it's way back to you .

Here's a suggestion that should work as long as whoever finds a camera is honest and wants to return it (or at least the SIM card). Make the first picture on your camera a photo showing your email, name, address, phone number or any combination of these. Be sure to "lock" the picture.

It's also a good idea to take photos of your luggage (again, lock them) in case it gets lost. It's a lot easier to just show a picture than to try to describe your luggage.

That is a great idea. I will remember to do just that before the next trip.

I lost my camera on RCCL last year. I called the Purser's office and told them exactly where I thought I left it and what the camera was. They told me they "might" have it but I needed to go to the Purser's office. There was a long line, but I figured I wanted to get the camera ASAP so I stood in the line. When it was my turn, I went thru the whole thing all over again. I explained where I lost it and described the camera. They went into the back and brought my camera out. But before I could walk away with it - they made me find a picture of myself on it!! Well, I don't take pictures of myself so I was standing there for 10 minutes (holding up a long line of others needing help). I finally found a picture of a friend in the background of one of the "scenery pictures" and luckily he was waiting in line with me - so I showed them that picture and they let me have the camera. Don't get me wrong....I am happy they didn't just give the camera to the first person who said "I lost a camera"....but I thought they went way overboard (no pun intended) on the ID process. I could have easily told them exactly what the last picture was and that should have taken care of it.

So.............having a picture of my name, address, email, etc as a first picture should help. I will also make sure I have a picture of ME as picture #2!

Another good idea! I don't like to have my picture taken, but will "suffer" for the possible return of a lost camera !

Default Another Way

You can rent an etching pen and etch your name or ss# on the bottom of the camera...
