Thread: Safe to bring DSLR to cruise?

  1. #1

    Default Safe to bring DSLR to cruise?

    I mean does cruise ship have safe deposit box?

    And got time to take photos? Or just just bring a point and shoot will suffice?

    Not sure about Star Curise, but Royal Carribean does have a safe box (like those in the hotel) in the cabin. But I think you will most likely carry it everywhere you go cos got lots of things to shoot. If you intend to leave it in the safe box (will means you will not be shooting most of the time) then don't waste time, bring a PnS will do

    If you are so worried, don't bring.
    When I do right, no one remembers. When I do wrong, no one ever forgets.

    Why cannot bring? It's just like any other of your valuables. You take care, can even bring to Afghanistan.

    I suggest you bring CPL filter along as the daylight can be very strong to cause reflections etc if you want to capture sea and clouds.

    Dude... Just bring what you can bring. You'll want to enjoy your cruise, not remember how you lugged an entire camera store onto the cruise.

    You can bring your entire gear, purchase every single lens at your preferred store, bring just your dSLR and your favorite lens, bring a point-and-shoot compact camera, a phone with a built-in camera... the list goes on...

    So the bottom line is, know what you want to shoot, and just bring the required equipment. Want some "seascapes"? Then maybe a CPL. Just you and your family & friends having fun? Anything will do.

    Which brings me to my second point. Whatever equipment you eventually choose to bring, just make the most out of it.
