7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 12, 2006
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ports were by far what made Destiny stand out. They were very exotic and breathtaking. Dominica was surprisingly beautiful. This is definitely the cruise for people in their mid to late 20's. The meal food was excellent. The posed pictures were beautiful and the crew was extremely helpful. We had a phenomenal time!
There were engine problems so we go to port late. The communication on the ship before we landed was horrible. They kept changing their story about what they were going to do help. In the end things were fine, but the craziness sucked. 8 weeks later they still have not given us the money they promised as vouchers for food and hotel. Everyone missed there flights and we had to stay an extra day.

Pretty place, but very quiet. Would not go there for a vacation. Food was good by the port.

Such a fine place...definitely want to get a time share in Aruba. There were tons of things to do and the beaches were beautiful.
Don't Miss: Definitely try out the Kooku koonuko party bus if you like to drink. Be careful and don't drink too quickly!

You must go to the top of the ship when you leave the port...the mountains and greens and water all at once is absolutely breathtaking. I ran 2 miles around the track during sunset and when we were leaving and I didn't even feel. The view was just marvelous.
Don't Miss: GO TO THE RAINFOREST!!

Pros: Ports were beautiful and exotic, meal foods were excellent, service top notch, posed pictures were great

Cons: Engines broke and we got in late...communication horrible, desserts weren't good, weight equipment in the gym was bad, spa rates were too expensive like $40 for a manicure!
