Ship photographer at iFLY?

Recommended Posts

We are sailing on Ovation in October and have booked the iFLY experience.

I was wondering whether the ship's photographers are available to take photos or do we have to arrange our own?

There should be! There was a photographer in June on Anthem. You're not allowed to bring your own camera inside the chamber though so husband and I took turns waiting outside to take pictures of each other and swapped halfway though.

Three staff members for each session. Operator and photographer are in the bench area with you and instructor is in the tube with the person currently flying. Note that since photographer is very close to you that you might want friends/family to stand outside farther back to get better pictures.

On my Anthem Cruise at the beginning of August there was no photographer. Which I thought was very strange since it seems like an easy money maker.

 

I also watched a few sessions the next day and there was no photographer again.

On anthem last year the photographer didn’t show up until the end of our session. Missed most of the divers.

We have always had photographers there. If your worried book 1/2 your party at 1 time and the other 1/2 a couple of sessions later more than a hour apart.

 

Best pictures if you sit on the deck in front of the tube.

 

Also book it early in your cruise (first sea day) then if weather doesn't cooperate you have time to reschedule.
