We are booked into 4 staterooms on the Seaside in June 2018. Two grandsons will be in our stateroom. This is my question: since the photo card is per stateroom will I have access to any photos that these 2 grandsons are in and also photos that they are in with their siblings and parents (another stateroom) or cousins (booked in 2 other staterooms)?

I have read somewhere that only one person in the cabin needs to purchase it. I can't confirm this though. It sounds like a great deal if true

Does any one know how this card works? Do you get a thumb drive with all photos? Can i print them at home or do i pay $99 for the card and pay extra for each photo i want from it?

After reading another review, what I understand is the $98 package is per cabin and you chose 100 photos that they print out for you (8x10's and 11x14's). You may chose any picture with anybody in it as long as one person from the paying cabin is in it. You do not get a thumb drive or CD, but the 100 printed photos (of great quality) is well worth the price. This info is not from personal experience but from gathered information from other posts. I will be getting this package on Seaview for July 2018. Hope this helps....

From my understanding the photo package prices have increased but I have not been able to access our future cruise information on the website for the last 3 weeks. Ugh!

We did purchase the $98 package on the Divina in July and the information here is correct . It includes 100 printed photos with no CD, however they will permit you to upgrade to a bigger package that includes the CD .

I am not sure what photo packages are available for the Seaside . In fact I kinda frustrated that I can not "enhance " my cruise on line right now. I know I could call them but I figure the customer service representatives are busy now with storm Irma problems, so I will wait for a while . I don't sail until June .

I was also told we would be provided the digital images (CD). The digital images would also be available immediately and also online when we get home for a period of time. No mention of print photos was made by the customer service rep as part of the package.

It seems that the photo packages are different depending where you are from and where you are cruising, I can enhance my cruise with drinks, meals, internet, photos, laundry, spa and OBC nearly 10 months in advance. On my profile page I see the "All inclusive 100 printed photo package" at 50% off for $98usd and the above mentioned "VIP Sea Card" also 50% off at $52usd, but it doesn't mention how many photos?
