In addition to the prices returning to the levels first set by Carnival, the cruise line is also now offering them on embarkation day for purchase.  The photo packages have also been slightly tweaked.

For anyone who purchased the photo packages at the increased rates, they will receive onboard credit during their cruise for the difference in price.  This can be as high as $150 for those who purchased the Pixels Max at $399.99.  What prices and packages are now offered on Carnival cruise ships?  Here is the latest as of April 19, 2018:
