Worth Every Penny!

Sail Date: January 31, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is beautiful, we had an ocean view room. We had a large window to view the ocean, the moon, the stars and land when we approached.

Pros: The FOOD WAS AMAZING! Fine dining every night, exellent Buffet's during the day.

Cons: Not thrilled about the dancers wearing G-strings with children at the shows.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
our room was beautiful, spacious and VERY CLEAN
Ship Quality
This ship is VERY clean, the decor tasteful and plenty large enough to find a quiet place if you so desire.
Food and Dining
Can't rave enough about the food - EXCELLENT
We entertained ourselves most of the time, but there was plenty to do if you are interested in that kind of stuff.
Service and Staff
The most courteous, pleasent, hard working staff you will find.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Be prepared to fight off vendors at tourist spots ie: Dunn's River Falls. It can be scary and they will "give" you a "welcome gift" to Jamaica.... then follow you or catch you on your way out DEMANDING MONEY. They are very clever at luring you into their little village and sucking the dollars right out of your wallet!
Don't Miss: Dunn's River Falls
George Town, Grand Cayman
Sting Ray City and Coral Reef Snorkeling - Best part of our land vacation.
