Fun, but you get what you pay for

Sail Date: December 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

We had a blast on our cruise, but if you want luxury and elegance this isn't the ship for you. Great value if you want to save up your money for excursions (or drinks) rather than spend it on the base price of the cruise. It definitely lives up to the "fun" part.

Pros: casual atmosphere, excellent itinerary

Cons: outdated amenities, mediocre food

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
There's no actual thermostat, just a vent you can open and close (which, if you're short, you do by standing on the bed). The bathroom had a flimsy curtain and weird hard dryer contraption.
Ship Quality
The decor was pretty ridiculous. Shiny pink metal walls? I don't even know what era that is. Public restrooms had tiny stalls.
Food and Dining
A few dishes were wonderful, but most weren't memorable and a few weren't very good at all.
Service and Staff
Loved the variety of excursions and enjoyed the shows. The big movie screen on deck is pretty cool.
