Would not choose Carnival again

Sail Date: May 18, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

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.

Pros: Decent size cabin and balcony

Cons: Food and ship was in bad shape

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.

Ship Quality
Enterainment was basically non existent. When there was entertainment is was very poor.
Food and Dining
Meals in main dining room was average but not what you would expect from a cruise line.
Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was a decent size and the balcony was enjoyable.
Service and Staff
Staff did their job. No one really went above and beyond except the golf pro who organized our golf excursions.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Beautiful island with a beautiful golf course.
Don't Miss: Royal St. Kitts Golf Club
Bridgetown, Barbados
Castries, St. Lucia
St. John's, Antigua
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
It was nice to see the island but this island would be a one time visit. Not much there.
