Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

By far the worse cruise I have taken!! Food wasn't good (one night; most of our people didn't even eat their dinner), staffs were cold, the room was a little stinky (urine smell), limited TV program/channel, and the shows were a bit too much for youth.

Pros: Port of Calls activities...which didn't have anything to do with the cruise line

Cons: Food, Crew, Stateroom condition

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.

Service and Staff
Unfriendly crew members (mostly of them anyway)....from waiters/waitresses, bartenders, house keepers, to the guest service operators. Fun ship alright.
Ship Quality
Guess it is for their cleaning convenience. Great amount of the ship was covered by bright purple aluminum wall/plate....lost the ship elegant and felt caged. Oh, the hot tub is COLD, and nobody were available to fix the problem.
Cabin / Stateroom
bathroom smelled like it pretty much ruined my trip.
Food and Dining
Nothing that I could care was either uncer cook or over cook (even the deserts). Ice cream just tasted like ice with color.
The comedian saved this section....he was the only one worth to see. Dancing show was a bit rate PG-13 or higher. The entertainment during dinner fell below past experience.
Key West, Florida
Weather was perfect....nice buildings. Hemingway's hosue is recommended to go visit.
Don't Miss: this place
Cozumel, Mexico
Tried different activities this time on this island; 1st time snorkling & clear kayak were absolutely delightful and fun....water was amazingly crystal. I could stay there forever.
Don't Miss: this one too
