Cons: The entertainment was not very 'family friendly'.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

Not very family friendly. I didn't stay for the entertainment in the main lounge. The costumes were very revealing. The jokes were a bit 'off color'. I did not attend any of the 'adult only' events.
Ship Quality
Very good layout. Some areas were, however a little tricky to get to. On some decks we needed to go up or down a deck to get from one end to the other. It took a few days to figure it out.
Food and Dining
The dining room food was sensational. The deck on the lido deck was very good, as well.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very good. You don't expect lots of room in a stateroom on a ship, but it was adequate. Pleanty of storage room.
Service and Staff
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Our room was always clean, the waiters were wonderful - they called us by name by the second night of the cruise. They even remembered that I drank coffee after dinner every night.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Beautiful beach.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
I enjoyed seeing the fDunn's River Falls, even though I didn't climb it. It was worth the time to see. Beautiful.
Don't Miss: Dunn's River Falls
