Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28

Traveled As: Large Group

Review Summary

The upkeep of the ship was not kept up. You can tell that the maintenance of this older ship was not a priority. Several things did not work and there was rust everywhere. There were stains and tears on the seating throughout the ship. The food in the main dining room was okay but not what you would expect from a cruise line. Since there are several other cruise lines that are able to maintain their ships, I would not choose Carnival again.

Enterainment was basically non existent. When there was entertainment is was very poor.

Service and Staff

Staff did their job. No one really went above and beyond except the golf pro who organized our golf excursions.

It was nice to see the island but this island would be a one time visit. Not much there.
