5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 09, 2011
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

This was only my second cruise and coming from the Norwegian cruise i had high expectations. The first couple of days weren't so great. The boat smelled like sewage in most parts and we even saw a baby roach at one point. Every time you would ask the staff something they didn't know much English or they really didn't want to help much. The food had no flavor whatsoever and it was the same thing every night. the boat had no stability everyday you would feel the movement of the ship.
