great cruise adventure

Sail Date: July 26, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

It was a good experience for my first cruise, my family and I had a great time, especially at the ports of call. The children's activities were good, although I think there could have been a lot more variety, with more crafts and activities.

Pros: the service was generally excellent, especially the dining services. The ports of call were beautiful, and really embodied the Caribbean experience

Cons: long lines at buffet, and unbearably long line getting on and off the tender(ferry) to and from their private island

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
dining staff was the most excellent
schedule not convenient: many programs scheduled during( late) dinner time; the deck parties were fun.
Children's Programs
programs were closed a lot, usually during early dinnertime, not convenient for late diners; meeting places changed often for 9-11 age group and confusing to keep track of activities; safety and staff friendliness good
Food and Dining
The food was good; there was one main course meat that I did not like, and it was promptly exchanged for something else by the waiter.
Grand Turk Island
taking a tour through the city is an eye opener
Don't Miss: horse carriage ride
Nassau, Bahamas
guided tour of the city is a must see
Don't Miss: atlantis
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
the island itself was beautiful, but line for debarkation, embarkation and food were too long; also the beverage center was not working for about 10 minutes!
