Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? Yes!

We saw a comic...ok, but not great. Went to two shows in the big auditorium. Well done, especially in consideration of the venue.
Children's Programs
The kids activities were just ok, but this may have been because our kid wanted to stay with us the whole time and pushed back on being left in camp.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food was fine. Breakfast was a standard-type buffet. Lunch could be either burgers & dogs or you could go to the dining room for something better. Dinner was very nice as they had an "everyday" menu next to a daily special menu. No, it's not four star, but it was very nice, served quickly & hot, and the service was very personable.
Cabin / Stateroom
Get the balcony. Very clean and quick attention.
Service and Staff
The crew went out of the way to make sure you were remembered and welcomed. While I know it is a skill/system, it still felt wonderful.
