5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 02, 2011
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was very large and well-maintained. Elegant color pallette. Dining rooms were classy. Pools seemed a little small. And it took me a couple of days to figure out the paths to and from places. But overall a lovely ship. We had a great time. I was aprehensive about our teen children getting bored, but in their words... "funnest vacation ever." They didn't even do any of the planned youth ativities or ever go to the youth spaces. We just bummed around as a family and had a great time. We found this a wonderful oportunity to introduce new foods to our picky eaters as well. Our water, Wi, in the Universe dining room was OUTSTANDING! He made every dinner an event for us. Thanks Carnival and Wi for a wonderful family vacation.
