7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Sail Date: February 18, 2007 Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28 Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Large Group Reviewed: 11 years ago
The crew on the Carnival Destiny are some of the friendliest people in the travel industry. I was very impressed with the attention that was paid to my young son during the trip. Any questions we had were answered quickly. The number of dining choices, as well as the quality of the food were terrific.

The lack of diving excursions was a dissapointment for some people travelling with us, especially since we were cruising the southern carribean.

They are terrific!!!

This ship is extremely well kept, considering its enormous size.
The people were extremely informative and helpful with respect to helping the divers in our group try to find a dive boat (unfortunately, the ship pulls into this port one hour later than the other ships, and therefore the dive boats are already out by the time we arrive). The beaches are breathtaking. I plan to return for an extended vacation in the future
Don't Miss: Private snokel adventure, or a visit to Jolly Harbor Beach
The town immediately near the port is in ruins. Vagrants are all around, and get nasty if you refuse to purchase what they're selling. We walked half a block from the port and quickly became uneasy. We returned to the mall in the port and were greeted by vendors who seemed to be put off if you asked them a question. I wanted to go on this cruise specifically to visit this island. I will NEVER return!!!
Pros: The staff was friendly, great activities on board
Cons: Lack of diving excursions considering we were in the southern carribean
