7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 10, 2006
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 9 years ago
Older ship, repairs not done timely. Activities on ship needs improvement.
The food was not impressive. We found out most off shore excursions were attended by Americans & Europeans with very few Puertoricans . If I knew that the majority were spanish speaking, I would have not gone on this ship. The fact that we spoke to Americans as well as other Europeans who also felt the same. They are not going to take Carnival Cruise again but if they decide to visit Caribbean will go with another ship

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food during scheduled dining times was better than other meals. I was not that impressed. No specialty restaurants. Ambiance-they had little shows performed by waiters for singing and dancing.

Needs improvement.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Ship staff at first had a terrible attitude but after we spoke to them then they seem to lighten up and became friendlier. They appeared to be burnt out but I think because of the type of rude people they had to deal with.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I like a bigger ship and this ship was older and in need of repairs.

Cabin / Stateroom

Size was great. Air conditiong needed repairs, lights, safe which was not completed in a timely fashion. Found out that they ran special in San Juan and other people paid for balconey rooms for $275.00 while Americans paid $800. Is this fair I think not.
