We'll be on the Magic at the beginning of February and I will let how the new kiosks work for us!
Thanks eastcoastgirlinks. Let us know what you think when you get back.
My DW and myself will be sailing on the Dream soon. I will be looking for those kiosks and let everyone know what I think of them if they have them.
Still, my OP was in regard to utilizing new technology in order to reduce the price and waste. From what crustybucket says they are utilizing some new technology to reduce the cost to themselves (the contracted company), but as of yet not passing that cost reduction down to the guests.
I am hopeful that once the new technology is debugged and rolled out fully to all ships Carnival will ask them (the contracted company) to pass some savings on to their guests in the form of price reductions on photos. Right now $25 for each 8x10 is just too much IMHO.
Thanks to all who have chimed in.
My mother always said "If you can't say something nice about someone then don't say anything at all".
But then again George Carlin said "Think about how stupid the average person is, and then realize that half of them are stupider than that."
That explains why it's so hard to do as my mother asked!
