One of the reasons for inviting Blackbeard on Allure of the Seas is that he is a better photographer than me, and also has an iPhone which he can pull all sorts of cinematographic tricks with. Like these videos from our day in Labadee.
He captured some of the activity on Barefoot Beach in the clip above, and you can watch the ship’s departure from the island in the short film below.
No doubt he would ask me to point out that they are stop-motion videos, using an app which takes a picture every second and then assembles them all together. And they were shot through a fish-eye lens which clips to the iPhone – hence the curvature of the horizon. Incidentally, you would not normally see passengers on the forward deck and helicopter landing pad. On this occasion there was a private party for suite guests.
They’re best watched in full-screen mode, so click the symbol bottom right of the frame. Enjoy.
