Don't Even Think About It

Sail Date: August 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

This ship is well past its prime. It's falling apart - literally. There was rust on our balcony and the interior of the suite was a disaster area {see additonal comments}. Forget about this ship. It's ready to be converted to be used as an undersea habitat.

Pros: It didn't sink.

Cons: Perhaps that it didn't sink.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.

Service and Staff
While the Eastern European staff were trying, they couldn't keep up with the filth around the ship discarded anywhere and everywhere by the...ship's passengers {'am being kind here}.
The water slide was not operating four of the days we were onboard. The pools are small, cramed with unsupervised children and adults of dubious sobriety.
Children's Programs
They didn't appear to have any suitable program for tweens.
Ship Quality
The 'suite' was in disrepair.
Food and Dining
If eating dinner at 5:45 in the afternoon after rushing to get back to the ship, to shower, change and navigate one's way to the dinning room is your idea of a relaxing 'dinner' at sea... great. Otherwise, you can get in line with the unsupervised children and try to get something from the buffet.
Cabin / Stateroom
The suite was poorly maintained. Tiles were falling off in the shower, there was a crack in the basin, there were half a dozen light bulbs out around the vanity/dressing table and we were told they didn't have any to replace 'em with.
