tmitchell82I use a monopod to keep it steady, light weight and easy to pack. Yes Vegas is wild, do you go over to creative cow???
All your points are well taken on taking good video -- using a good mic and tripod and so on .. On sea days you can control things somewhat and get shots around the ship etc and take the care needed --- but while on tour? .. Well that is a different story. That is a huge challenge to keep the video steady while trying to keep up with the group. One answer is to use a wide angle lens which is much more forgiving if you are a little shaky. Most video camera do not come with a very wide angle. I know I've added a wide angle adapter to my XR500V with good results.

Nice videos! .. Don't you love Vegas!
Windows movie maker is a free program That's the good news. I tried it myself but didn't like it. Very basic. I think it very worthwhile to learn Vegas or PowerDirector or the like and find a great user forum for questions.
