Cruise Photos--What do you want to see in a review?

I don't spend my entire holiday fretting over the photo documentation of our travels. My memories are mostly kept inside my head...spending my time relaxing & enjoying the break. You miss a lot when you are worrying about the next photo-op.

However, the next time I write a review, I would like to include some photos that others would deem helpful & appreciated. What would those photos be for you?

I like to keep some pictures for memory/ scrap booking (If I ever get the time!) but I always like to see/take pictures of the boat itself, some hot spots/activities (pool, bars, restaurants), the room (which I never remember to take for a review) and a few of the ports. With a review, its more of a quick glimpse/feel for the ship and cruise itself... trying to impose myself, or live vicariously through another.

I would like to see photos of the ports that you stopped in and from excursions that you took. I can look the ship up on a bunch of web sites to see photo's of the ship and the cabins (I really don't need 5 photo's of the ships bathroom unless your in the grand suite)

Definitely of ports and locals. Shops and such. It is helpful to travellers to see through other peoples lenses what to look forward to or what to avoid. All of those silly bathroom pictures and cabin pictures have been way over done! Stuff like this, shot from the VIP Serenities Resort in Punta Cana

Photos of ports and beaches

My first 2 reviews have no photos yet, but I have them all on FB, just need to save them so I can upload them to the review and share with everyone Happy

You get points for posting pics Big Smile just please fill in the ship and port.

Well, I'm a scrapbooking-crazy-lady. I love taking tons of photos, and buying special photo albums that have the same theme as my vacation. I love seeing the photos of other fellow cruisers, because the photos can be helpful and can give great ideas.

That was me on my first 2 cruises! I took pictures of everything, but what I put on my reviews is just a watered down version of all the selections

Funny you mention about documentation of your travels, my wifes grandmother just passed away and we inheritted her travel journals. So I have taken it upon myself to transcribe and print into books for the family. They are pure gold! Photos are fine, but actually writing down what you are seeing and feeling at that moment. That is worth 100 photos!

I mainly like to see pictures of the ports & excursions. If they are from a port that I haven't been to, it will give me some idea as to what there is to see.
