A vacation on a cruise ship with your
spouse, family, or friends is a great way to create some wonderful memories.
Like most people, you will probably want to preserve those memories
long after the cruise is over. Learn to take some great photographs
so reminiscing about your trip will be almost as fun as the trip itself.
Whether you’re an amateur with a disposable camera or a professional
with some serious equipment, everyone can benefit from a few helpful
tips that allow those photos to turn out fabulous.
For starters, the number one mistake most people make in vacation photographs
is not capturing the spirit of the vacation! On your cruise, what would
you rather remember- your kids lined up stiffly by the rail of the boat,
or your kids in the middle of a fast and furious limbo competition?
Grab those candid shots- don’t worry about poses, smiles, or saying
cheese. Smiles are more natural- and usually much happier!- when they’re
not forced. Simply turn on the flash on your camera so you’re prepared
for any lighting conditions, and snap away. The occasional blurred
shot or cut-off background will not be a big deal compared to the looks
of involvement on everyone’s faces and the memories your candid snaps
will capture. Of course, do your best to frame the shots nicely and
capture as much of the scene as you can- but sometimes, the spur of
the moment far outweighs the importance of a technically perfect photograph!
Another important thing to remember when taking photos aboard your cruise
vacation is this: Since you’re certainly not on board a ship every
day, do your best to capture your surroundings. The huge expanse of
water around you, the fancy chandeliers in the dining room, and the
crew in uniform will all be things you will love to look back on years
later. But use a little imagination when it comes time to take photographs
of your surroundings. If you take a picture of the water around you,
try to grab the edge of the ship or, even better, a faraway island or
stretch of land, in your photograph. It will help put the view into
perspective, show the true size of things, and remind you of the circumstances
under which the picture was taken.
Most importantly, don’t stress too much about taking vacation photos
on your cruise! Even if you have lots of photographic equipment, this
might be the time to leave it at home and invest in a disposable point
and shoot. This will remove the worries about keeping your good equipment
safe, and it will also cut down on the hassle of feeling you need to
create the perfect photograph. Vacations are meant to be non-stressful,
so don’t spend your entire vacation stressing over creating memories
of it! Grab a camera, turn on the flash, and snap some candid shots
of whatever strikes you. Years from now, when you’re remembering the
great time you had, even that slightly blurred picture you took when
you couldn’t stop laughing will bring back the moment and make you smile.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
