Thanks Sherrie for such a great review. Great detail. Those photos are expensive aren't they, but I'm a sucker and end up buying quite a few. I love to have the Island photos when you get off the ship at the beginning of each island stop in my photo album, as well as the theme night ones.
We didn't see any shows on our last cruise so we might take in a couple this time, especially if they're on before 2nd sitting (depends on the weather outside and the socializing of course).
Just have to say, you must see a show! I'm sure you won't be dissappointed. Normal showtimes were 8pm for 1st sitting diners & 10pm for 2nd sitting diners. Some evenings they were altered to 6.15pm for 2nd sitting diners & 8pm for 1st sitting diners.
As for professional photos, yes they cost a bit.
We culled our pics each day and at the cruise's end, culled again (brutally!). I remember a lady in the photo queue one day (about day 4....) screaming out "$435! You're bloody joking!" This was after she was handed the receipt to sign...she didn't change her mind though, just walked away swearing under her breath. I presume they were the only photos she bought! Moral of the story: always ask the cost before you get too carried away!
