Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28 Cruise Review
The flight to Vancouver from L.A., checking in at immigration and then filling out papers at embarkation, all of that was a tedious nightmare. But.....once we were onboard, everything greatly improved.We had a balcony room next door to our friends and it was a very nice room. Quite spacious compared to the Carnival ship we had been on 10 years before (this was only our second cruise).Our first night at dinner was amazing. We had a lovely table and were seated with wonderful people. The wait staff was friendly, smiling and very helpful. One day at lunch they had key-lime pie but they ran out before we got there. We mentioned it to the maitre d' and he told us to ask our dinner maitre d' about getting some. We did and the very next night we had a whole key-lime pie brought to our table by our waiter. There were a couple of food items that we didn't care for but all in all, the food is great!We were all impressed with the roomy, spaciousness of the ship. We never once felt crowded while we were on the ship. We could go anytime of the day and find a lounge chair to sit on the deck. As a matter of fact, rows of lounge chairs. That was also true of all the common areas, including the different lounges. We also noticed that the only time we seemed to see children was at mealtimes. They must have really kept them busy with their kid's program.We really enjoyed the entertainment, especially the stage productions.The bad news is, they lost a major piece of our luggage and it has, to date, not been found. Fortunately, it happened on the last day of our cruise. Unfortunately, in contained all my formalwear and warm clothing for the next leg of trip as well as all of our formal photos taken on the ship.That having been said, it was still a terrific cruise and I highly recommend the Summit.
