4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 01, 2011
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 6 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Nothing that I could care for...food 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.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
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

1 out of 5
bathroom smelled like urine....so it pretty much ruined my trip.

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: None....love this one too

Weather was perfect....nice buildings. Hemingway's hosue is recommended to go visit.
Don't Miss: None...love this place

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

Cons: Food, Crew, Stateroom condition
