Excellent Hospitality, Loud Cabin Rooms

Sail Date: May 02, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Ship was old and outdated. Not sure if stabilizers were in use as the boat shifted and moved all over sea. Not good. Rooms were noisy and their was poor planning in the design of ship. Engineers placed cabins adjacent to places where live and very loud music pulsated through the room. Should have thought that through a bit more. We moved cabins only to find the new location was worse! Yikes. Very frustrating.

Pros: Food was outstanding; destination beaches were epic, workers were fabulous

Cons: Paper thin cabin room walls, boat was a rockin', wanted to blow chunks most the time

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? No.
