Good cruise!

Sail Date: May 31, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise experience and overall it was great! We loved the ship and all of the space it had - from the decks outside to the room with a balcony. The staff on the ship was amazing and so eager to help in any way. Dinner in the dining room was one of the highlights of each day. The food was fantastic and the service was incredible!! The only thing we didn't like was that it seemed to be a party ship - a lot of really young people (people that looked way underage even) drinking and partying at all hours of the day. I'm all for having fun but some of it just seemed over the top. Even the cruise director was constantly making jokes about drinking and being drunk as well as a lot of sexual jokes.

Pros: Great dining room experiences!! Great balcony rooms!!

Cons: Party atmosphere - some things a little too crude and over the top

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

We didn't participate in most of the activities they offered but there was a huge selection of things to choose from every day.
Food and Dining
The dining room had superb food. I wasn't disappointed with any of it. The buffet areas had good food but the quality didn't seem to be as high as the dining room. Still great food though!
Cabin / Stateroom
We loved our room!! The balcony was great and room size was perfect!
Ship Quality
Beautiful ship! Nice decks with plenty of room, beautiful balcony rooms that were more spacious than I expected, and a beautiful interior that was fun to walk around and look at. :)
Service and Staff
Great staff!!
Nassau, Bahamas
We didn't care for Nassau. We felt very uncomfortable walking around because so many people were coming up to us trying to get us to buy what they were offering. It was also very dirty and seemed like a scary area.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
This place is paradise on earth. It was the most beautiful place I think I've ever seen!! Absolutely stunning!! The only thing that was disappointing was that there were no fish right off the beach so we couldn't snorkel on our own.
Grand Turk Island
Beautiful port!! Unfortunately it started storming while we were there so we boarded the ship before it left port. It has a great area for snorkeling (on your own), a beautiful beach, and a great area of shops for souvenirs.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling right off the beach
