Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very clean, no trash anywhere. the staff was always cleaning something.
Food and Dining
The food was awesome! Fruits, salads, seafood, desserts, steak, grilles, chinese, sushi...something for everyones taste and noeone went hungry.
Cabin / Stateroom
WONDERFUL! Our steward cleaned our roon twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, then turned down the bed at night with a towel animal every night. We choose a balcony size room, anything smaller would not have been good. The rooms were really small on the inside of the ship.
Service and Staff
We met a casino host that followed us around the ship and joined in the fun of picking on my Everyone was always willing to help, very friendly.
The had a showgirls and comedy show each night of the cruise. We stopped to see a little of both. Awesome! Bingo, hairiest chest contest, talent contest, blackjack tournement & slot tournement to name a few. Stevie Wonder made a guest appearance on our cruise during the talent contest!!!
Nassau, Bahamas
This was not one of my favorite island in the Bahamas. Very commercialized and busy. We bought an excursion to snorkel for gold in Blackbeard's Adventure, which took us to a private island. That was awesome! You are not really snorkeling for real gold but if you do find one of "their gold bags" you win a prize in Nassau.
Don't Miss: Blackbeard's Adventure, swimming with stingrays
Grand Turk Island
Clear geenish-teal waters called our name to snorel and swim. We also shopped in a few of the islands shops available to the cruiseline.
Don't Miss: Margaritaville
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
This is a private island owned by Carnival Cruiselines and we we transports by smaller boats to the island for a wonderful day of powdery sand and clear waters. They brought crew members to the island as well and cooked lunch for us a BBQ. No shopping on this island.
Don't Miss: Small Bahamian church, horseback riding
