5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 10, 2011
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

We cruised on the Destiny and it was a great ship. We had a balcony room and I don't think I would cruise without at least a balcony room. The staff was wonderful, the food was great, and the entertainment/activities on the boat was a great addition to the cruise.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was so much more than we expected it to be.


5 out of 5
It was so nice to have planned activities all throughout the day and the entertainment was great. We saw musicals, comedy shows, game shows, and even bingo

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
There was not a single staff person that was not constantly helpful or had a bad word at all. They were wonderful and seemed to all work together well from the entertainment staff to the wait staff

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was awesome, the layout was very easy to find everything and everyone was so great about helping you.

Grand Cayman is absolutely breathtaking. We snorkled & sting rayed it up. And the shopping is out of this world. This port is a must see.
Don't Miss: Sting Ray City & Snorkel

Ocho Rios was beautiful, however I was not expecting the amount of people that would come to you offering items and begging. Other than that it was a good port
Don't Miss: Dunn River Fall is absolutely beautiful

Pros: I liked the fact that everything was right there that you needed

Cons: I did not care for Jamaica as much
