Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

We thought it was a wonderful ship and crew. We had 2 cabins for a family of 5. They were very spacious, clean, and the attendant was very responsive. My 11 yr old twins were very adventurous with dinner. My 14 year old had a great time as well. There was always something going on.

Unbelievable clear blue water, soft sandy beaches. Hot, take advantage of shade. Bungalow seemed like a steal after the fact.
Don't Miss: Swimming and snorkeling

Not there very long. Cruise center was very nice, as well as snorkeling off the beaches. We saw lots of exotic marine life.
Don't Miss: snorkel right there at the beach.

Did a 3rd party excursion half day snorkel. The drive there was long, but worth it as we snorkeled in 3 different locations, the last being above large sharks. Very exciting and scary. Once in a lifetime experience. The transportation should have been coordinated better by Stuarts Cove. The didn't have enough buses to accommodate everyone coming back from Stuart's Cove, so we had to take an extra hour getting back to the ship/port.

Pros: Big cabins, plenty of activities, many food choices, clean

Cons: Some long lines on Lido Deck
