This was my first cruise vacation ever and it left an excellent impression, I really enjoyed sailing on Carnial Destiny and look forward to furture cruises. The experience of sunbathing on deck during the day and walking around in the wind at night was enough to forget about home and work. Add to the amazing food and dining staff, the shows at night and a selection of bars to socialize at, made it one of the best trips I've been on.

Would have liked to have had time in the evening to experience the bar and social crowd. It was very hot but the walk down Duval street was very interesting and enjoyable.
Don't Miss: view from lighthouse was fantastic

Snorkel/zipline tour was very fun, and the resort where it was located was gorgeous. It was a bit of a rushed tour however.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling anywhere

Pros: Dining, Shows, Staff, Relaxation

Cons: Rushed de-embarkation, slow service for served breakfast, a/c too cold
