The boarding, departure and the service aboard Carnival Destiny was excellent. For an older ship it was in great shape. They could look into cleaning the dinning room windows though. The staff was great. They remembered your names and went to great length to make you happy. We had three adults and two children in a single stateroom with a balcony and felt that accommodations were spacious enough for us. They kept the rooms neat and tidy servicing them twice daily. The staff was never pushy or rude. I highly recommend the itinerary. Half Moon Cay was a great place to visit. It was like an excursion. The private beach was awesome. The Grand Turk snorkeling was spectacular. The Bahamas Atlantis excursion was expensive and fun and perhaps not worth the costs but we still had a great time. If I had to do it again I would probably book another snorkeling excursion in the Bahamas. Regarding the BJ coupons: Recommend you provide less but better quality coupons people will use. (i.e. 15% off any purchase from the ship stores; 10% off your 1st bottle of wine; 10% off one excursion.)
