The new embarkation prices were due to demand from cruisers and the cruise line is also refunding the price difference back to guests who purchased the higher price earlier in the week. John Heald has been keeping everyone updated:

In addition, in response to guests’ requests, we are now making these packages available to guests onboard on embarkation day only at special rates (Pixels Essentials: $119.98; Pixels: $239.98; and Pixels Plus: $299.98).

For those guests who had purchased the Pixels photo packages from April 16 -18, we will offer an onboard credit for the difference in price. We will also honor the original Pixels Plus Digital package for those who purchased it before today.

We appreciate our guests’ feedback and are happy that we can provide this great opportunity to preserve their cruise memories with photo packages that meet their needs.

Carnival Cruise Line is moving forward when it comes to digital prints on USB. Ships are moving away from the traditional way of providing photos. Carnival Horizon, Carnival Vista, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Conquest, Carnival Magic, Carnival Victory and Carnival Paradise all offer this new digital photo experience so far.
