Carvinal Destiny

Sail Date: August 08, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Good boat. Slide, big screen tv, shows, magic, comedy, casino. The normal staff and very nice.

Pros: Great boat, 15 percent gratuitity is added to ALL drinks you buy so watch out for that.

Cons: Book you shore excursions through carnival not Cruises Only. The excursions I bought through here were sketchy to say the least. The so called Tour was a guy in a taxi telling us different facts from the tour guides he pawned us off at two different forts. But they did tell the same jokes to us

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very clean, nice
Cabin / Stateroom
The pink sink is a little dated but still everything was nice.
Food and Dining
Great. Be sure to order as many dinners as you want. Chocolate melting cake is the best thing I have ever had.
Service and Staff
Very friendly
Lots to do. Never got bored
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Private beach, like a resort. Very nice.
Nassau, Bahamas
Good, but dirty off the main street.
Grand Turk Island
Scuba diving. Again, book through carnival not here. The excursions on here are not the same as the ones on the boat. Sketchy boat, but had a good time.
