5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 23, 2011
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The Destiny needs to be put out to pasture. The ship is OLD and Carnival should be ashamed that it asks people for money to cruise on this behemoth. The ride was rocky on all levels of the ship; we actually saw people stumbling. The windows in our cabin were murky...just overall UGH.

The River Tubing Safari excursion was enjoyable. Would recommend.

The Stingray City Sandbar and Rum Point Beach Safari excursion was a waste of time. The ride to the stingrays was a half hour long, we spent an hour or so there, then rode another half hour to the beach, only to spend an hour and a half there. Lunch was PRICEY! $50 US dollars for two sandwiches and one drink.

Cons: The ship was old and outdated. Could not access Sail and Sign from TV like other ships.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.
