Skip the boat....stay at an island!
Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28 Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: June 29, 2009
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago
The islands of Grand Turk and of course Half Moon Cay were amazing. The bar staff and most of the deck hands were polite and helpful. We had a few unavoidable issues with our 6th deck balcony cabin (flooding from neighboring cabins, eletrical problems) that were not addressed properly by managment and promies were not followed through on. Met great people at dinner, but other eating arrangments and management disrespect were a turnoff for any possibility of returning. The island of Half Moon and its gorgeous beaches and water were worth the price of admission, but this is basically a racket outside of that. Oh well, I don't regret it, but I would never promote it....
