Less than my previous experience

Sail Date: April 23, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

I was completely taken aback by the lack of control with the young kids in the whirlpool and pool. Amazing how parents use these two forms of entertainment as "baby sitters" for their children. The children were totally out of control on all days. Adults had a difficult time even getting in to enjoy themselves. And sitting by the pool/whirlpool was totally impossible without getting totally wet. The kids had glass cups and plastic throwing water out all over the adults sitting by trying to enjoy the day. Where are the parents? Where were the "cruise authorities" while all this was going on? I have been on other Carnival Cruises where this did not go on.

Pros: Housekeeping was wonderful

Cons: No control over hot tubs/pool

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? No.
