We sailed on the Destiny on 10-22-06. We had a great time and a lot of fun. We had read some reviews and became a little worried that we had made a bad choice, so we were a little suprised that we enjoyed it so much, especially considering what a bargain we got for 7 days with a balcony room. We found that the air-conditioning worked well, the dining room food was very good, the entertainment was good(the second big production show was a little lacking), there were a lot of Puerto Ricans that spoke only spanish but that didn't really present any problems for us, the hallway carpets were stained and need to be replaced (the things that were supposedly really bad about this ship) but none of these things kept us from having fun. The only suggestion I have is eat most of your meals in the dining room not the buffet because the lines were very long(our cruise was pretty much full) and the crew couldn't seem to clean the tables fast enough.
