A Mixed Cruise

Sail Date: December 13, 2010

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was lovely, as usual....Wonderful food and staff...However, people do NOT move fast enough in the buffet lines!!! You sometimes have a 20 min-30 min wait!!....The shows were only the first 2 nights and the last night....They should have some show every night...Also, don't have blasting videos on Deck 9 all the time...It gets wearing...Also, they should have the comedy acts in the large showroom...They were waiting lines for every show, yet the main shows were rarely packed...

Pros: beautiful white sand beaches and warm water

Cons: Nassau--the people

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

Ship Quality
Have more quiet areas
They should have entertainment in the main room every night. They should add some more small activities, like Battle of the Sexes, etc. They should have different types of music, eg Irish, French, etc. Also, they could have an acoustic folk room..
Food and Dining
A few more choices would be nice, but the quality was very good...
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
We loved the beach, right near the ship!!...Nice BBQ too...
Grand Turk Island
We loved the beach...The museum was wonderful!!...Very friendly people....Good if you do a lot of water activities (which we didn't)...Not much of a downtown...just a few huts...
Don't Miss: Museum
Nassau, Bahamas
There isn't a whole lot to see....The people there can be very rude and surly...
