I did an 11 day Med cruise with my 7D and two or three lenses. Used them both on and off the ship, never had an issue. Why buy a camera and then leave it at home when you want to take pictures?

Bermuda is a very safe place with much to see. Ride the public transportation (bus) on the highways or rent a moped - no car rentals (at least the last time I was there). I rode the bus with the locals and enjoyed the travelogue when I asked a question. If the weather is clear, you get a fine view from the lighthouse.

Hah. Nice.

I've never been on a cruise, but I'd definitely bring a camera on one. However, I'd probably bring a cheaper one if I had one just on the off chance that it got lost.

I had been told "Stories about what happening in cruise ships are all true".
So there is NO point to bring DSLR, but P&S for non-stop PARTIES.
And consult your doctor for STD prevention ;)

I cruise a lot to the Caribbean and never take my DSLR. I take my G11 and honestly typically take a few shots here and there but I'm too wrapped up in the activities to spend time on photography. It's not a nonstop party, but there's always something to be involved with or if there's not I'm relaxing near the pool. Not that I pay close attention, but I've not noticed many with full photography gear. Point and shoots abound.

If I were cruising in Europe or to someplace exotic/port intensive, I'd take the DSLR for shots off of the ship.

I just got back from Bermuda less than a month ago. I took all my gear I could fit under the seat in the plane. lol
Be sure to take a circular Polarizer. The color of the water and sky demands this.If you go near a beach, take a blower of some sort to blow off sand from around the lens area before you change lenses. Sunsets and sunrises are awesome. Be near a shore at both times each day.
A neutral density filter - like a ND400x would be killer. I didn't think to buy one and wish I had.
If you like birds, the Bermuda Long Tail is a very nice one to shoot.
Finally, Be sure to have a Bermuda Rum Swizzle and while you are at it, stop by the Frog & Onion Pub for a "Golden Frog" drink.
Have fun!


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.
Canon 7D and a bunch of other stuff
