7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 08, 2008
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship seemed old , the windows were not clean enough to enjoy a nice ocean view ,, with streaks on it ,, there was some squeaking in the cabin , which kept me up a couple of nights ,, we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary ,, I expected a cake or a bottle of champagne as courtesy as we were 7 of us , friends who came on this cruise to celebrate my anniversary ,, but my friends had to pay to buy us a cake and the dining room staff did attempt to brighten up the mood . The food was good but went twice to the lido deck which I understand is by the pool area ,, but seeing young teenagers running in and out in their swimming trunks and some people just strolling in with 300 plus pounds on them without a towel or any covering just their swim costumes made me loose my appetite to dine in the restaurant .

3 out of 5
Visited the waterfalls ,, kinda okay and the botanical gardens were a waste of money and time,, my backyard has more plants than the botanical gardens on 40 acres ,,total waste ,, the govt needs to step up to the plate and make it a proper garden to generate revenue ,,
