On the bow of the ship – Just like Jack & Rose

Re-enact that famous titanic moment when actors Leo and Kate fly over the sea. Make sure you have a selfie stick, set the camera to wide angle and snap away for some great romantic shots of you and your partner. Time it right and capture the orange glow of the sunset as it glistens across the sea for extra effect. Cheesy, but cool…

Selfie with the Captain

If you bump into ‘the man’, the captain that is, it is vitally important to snap a selfie with him. Ask him first, then beg. Begin your pose and snap away. If possible, make sure the background is filled with people. It will look more like you are partying or mingling with top brass on your cruise holiday.

Hotspots around the ship

At the bar - take a selfie, early morning run on the track – take a selfie, entering port – take a selfie. There are loads of places on the ship that will make for the perfect picture for you to post to social media and share your experience with everyone back home. Make sure the background tells a story of your holiday and that you have a huge smile on your face, for a fun image.

Characters on board

After the shows, approach an entertainer and request a photo with them while they are still in character. What could be a better selfie showing how much fun you are having than that? If someone is dressed up, grab a selfie. Some ships even have cartoon characters for the kids in dress-up. If you can, you should definitely approach them for a fun selfie shot.

In the action

Whether you’re negotiating the climbing wall, swimming in the pool, riding a slide at the waterpark, winning big at the casino or unwinding on a recliner on one of the decks, you need to be snapping selfies to send home. And whilst you’re at it, you might as well tag us!

It’s all about capturing the moment and showing how much fun you’re having.
