Review summary

I would love to share some photos that the cruise ship took, but too expensive. They offered to do a Black & White photo session, which we did...only to find out it was $450.00 per 8 X 10 print!! Are they crazy or do they think we are?? Outrageous and the disappointing things is I would have bought 5-7 photos is they were reasonably priced. What a rip !! very disappointing.

Beautiful water, but did not get off ship. To rent some protection from the sun is way too expensive
