M.S. Destiny (Vacation of a lifetime)

Sail Date: June 24, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The Carnival Destiny was built in 1996. In the cruise ship world, it is considered to be old. However, the ship does not look old. It is clean and offers a walth of amenities. I was very impressed by all of the different activities that the ship offers. I never felt bored on the ship.

Pros: The staff on the ship, the ports, the ship, the food, and the entertainment

Cons: None

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
St. Thomas has a lot of places to shop! Havenside Docks had great places to buy gold and diamonds. Liquor was also cheap here. Black Beard and Blue Beard's castles weren't as interesting as I thought. The skyride up to Paradise Point provided breathtaking views of the entire St. Thomas/ St. John's area.
Don't Miss: Havenside Docks shopping!
Dominica
Dominica is a very poor island, but the people there are wondeful! They are more than thrilled to show you around their island paradise and tell you about its history. Dominica is home to beautiful waterfalls amd towering mountains.
Don't Miss: Trafalgar Falls & the Pitons
Bridgetown, Barbados
Barbados has an old town colonial feel to it. There are a lot of churches and historic buildings in Bridgetown. The beaches in Barbados are beautiful and inviting. While in Barbados, be sure to sample food from a local Chefette's restaurant! Be sure to visit the new cricket stadium in Bridgetown, too. It's a short walk from the cruise ship terminal.
Don't Miss: surfing at Batheba beach

St. John's, Antigua
Antigua is going through a huge Renaissance. Everywhere you look, they are building new buildings and improving old ones. The beahces are beautiful. The sugar plantations provide a lot of history and insight into the slave trade. The dockyards were also interesting because they showed how boats are constructed.
Don't Miss: Nelson's Dockyard, Shirley Heights, and Nest's Beach

Castries, St. Lucia
St. Lucia is similar to Dominica. It has a lot of mountains and volcanos. To see the entire island, be prepared to endure hours of winding mountain roads. The volcano there is interesting. This island allows for beautiful photography.
Don't Miss: Soufrire volcanos
