Room Type: Inside

The Carnival Destiny ship staff were friendly, courteous and promptly helped when help needed. This was our first cruise. Our stateroom was maintained like a queen's room. The safe in the room was too small for a laptop; we had difficulty trying to access the Internet some of the time. The ship had a lot of entertainment, especially for days "at sea." The food was excellent, and some available 24/7. Each day, we were given the schedule of entertainment for the that day and helpful information. We were given free post cards and free maps of each Island. The phone in the stateroom had an optional easy alarm setting.

The tour of Jamaica, "Spirit of Ocho Rios," was excellent: it covered a lot of the Island, the bus tourist guide had a microphone so in the back of the bus, we could hear every word, and the tour included historical information and museum, a pottery factory, the rain mountain, etc., and toured a lot of the Island (see Internet "Spirit of Ocho Ricos" tour list).

However, the tour, "Best of Cayman Island Tour," seemed like stops at Tourist Shops, more Tourist Shops, and more Tourist Shops. The bus tour guide's voice didn't carry very well at the back of the bus. It seemed like we saw only a part of the Island.

Pros: The Jamaican Island tour was excellent.

Cons: The Cayman tour, "Best of Cayman Island" was disappointing
