The Worst Cruise Ever

Sail Date: July 31, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

In my opinion, this was the worst cruise I've ever taken. The ship's staff were unaccommodating. The ship had too many people on it. Camp carnival had very poorly planned activities and stuck my kids in smoked filled lounges. As for the adults, there were barely any shows playing. Even the Bingo was a nightly activitiy that was unattendable. Overall, I would not recommend this cruise to a family!!!

Pros: the food

Cons: the ship

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.

Children's Programs
My children were playing in smoke filled lounges. When I asked the staff why, they informed me that the ship was an old ship and not equiped for camp. They proceeded to tell me to take it up with headquarters back in Miami. Very rude
Service and Staff
The willingness of the taff was unacceptable. Nobody knew anything and even bartending staff was hard to get a hold of. Room service took about 1.5 hrs or was non existant.
There was a comedian and/or show scheduled on the 2nd night or the last night. Because the lounges and discos were used for camp carnival, these were not available until until after 10 pm
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food was good
Cabin / Stateroom
George Town, Grand Cayman
Just walked around
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
We took a shore excursion to a beach. The beach staff tried but a disappointment.
