I had a great time!

Sail Date: March 23, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

It's an older ship, but very well maintained.
The food was great and the staff was very friendly and warm.

Pros: My balcony and the ports of call

Cons: It's difficult to meet people on board, unless they're at your table or on an excursion.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

St. John's, Antigua
Ziplining was VERY cool. Lots of tourist shopping/markets on this island.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
The catamaran trip is so much fun with music the entire time and dancing on the way back. The crew was phenomenal and the lunch was great. Private beach was cool, and snorkeling was better than Barbados. Open bar always a BONUS.
Don't Miss: The catamaran Fan ta sea.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Went to Orient Bay beach on our own. NO tour. The taxi is about 6-7 dollars per person per way. The beach is beautiful but much more crowded and commercial than Magen's Bay on St. Thomas. Plus, you see boobies of all ages, shapes, and sizes, at the Orient Beach. Those French! :)
Bridgetown, Barbados
Crowded, disorganized, dirtier city than the others.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
no tour... take the cab to Magen's BAY!!!! It's affordable and it's SOOOO BEAUTIFUL. They have a bar, bathroom, live music. The rum punches sneak up on you.
Don't Miss: Magen's can do it without the tour and it's cheaper and you're in control
Don't do the aerial tram. Too expensive for what you see and the tour.
