Destiny is a beautiful ship! No doubt about it. Yes, the decor, in some respects, reflects that Destiny is an older ship. BUT, by no means are you going to get on board and think, "Wow! This ship is old."

The ship is increbibly clean, the crew extremely attentive and friendly, and it is truly a FUN SHIP!

We booked the "Behind the Fun" tour, and I must say --- DO NOT miss this! What a great opportunity to meet AND interact with the crew --- the Chef, the Environmental Officer, the dancers and stage crew, the Facilities crew, and certainly the Bridge Officers and Captain. And last, but not least, Dejan, the guide! What a great guy! So friendly and entertaining!

We truly enjoyed our 1st cruise experience, and would definitely book another cruise on Destiny again!

Service and Staff

EVERY member of the crew, staff, and officers were friendly and always had smiles on their faces. Stewards (Nelson and Erwin) were AMAZING! They took great care of us, and remembered our names from the moment we boarded and entered our cabin. TOP NOTCH crew, staff, and officers!

We stayed in 7198, Penthouse Suite on Empress deck. GREAT room and balcony size! Very clean and very comfortable!

Don't Miss: Again, the beach!

Because we did the "Behind the Fun" tour, which conflicted with one of the tours we had planned in Nassau (cancelled, and DID get full refund! Special thanks to Roy at the Destiny Excursion desk!), we just enjoyed Nassau by walking around and visiting the various shops and meeting/interacting with the locals.

Great shops, friendly people, and beautiful beach!
Don't Miss: The beach, of course!

Pros: Everything! The food, the crew, the excursions, the tours! Oh! And the Penthouse Suite! :-)

Cons: Should have booked a longer cruise!
