7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 08, 2007
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago
We recently sailed on the Carnival Destiny for the first time, I must say i wasn't impressed. After booking our cruise, we read about the ship and had feed back from previous guess on Destiny. It wasn't positive feedback. Foods in buffet area wasn't that great. I ate must lunches at Happy Valley. However Dinner in the dinning room was excellent.

Balcony was very small, no refridgerator in our stateroom. Ship ride was a bit rough.

Night shows were OK, not of the best. Checkout was very slow.

Staffs were wonderful. I would highly recommend booking vacation with BJ's Vacation, but don't think i will sail again with Carnival.
