5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 25, 2011
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship is nice and clean but the look is out dated. The pool is way too small and always full of yelling children. The bar staff is super nice and will make any drink for you. The dinning room staff is also real nice and the food is good. The towels need a heavy dose of fabric softener.

our toilet stopped working on the last day and nobody ever came to fix it even after we called several times.

great beach but we wished we could see more of the island and not be limited to the area mapped out by carnival. The food at the only restaurant we had access too was nasty and overpriced.
Don't Miss: The beach and the pool.

it like you never got off the ship. Because this is a private island they give you the same food, gift shop items, drinks, ect. as on board. The beach is great.
Don't Miss: that was a blast...would do it all day

Finally we got to see something other than carnival merchandise. Book your excursions once you get off the ship. The locals offer better deals for the same trips.
Don't Miss: The straw market and just walking around talking to the locals.

Pros: we loved the drinks and the dining room dinners

Cons: not a big fan of the buffet and the all you can eat icecream was not made with cream. It was more of a flavored ice. Also did not really like the way they are always trying to sell you anything and everything 24/7.
