Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.

We were not able to dock for 3 days so we were stuck on this ship. The planned entertainment was "cancelled" for the 3rd night at sea. Now the people that were to perform didn't get off the ship. so why cancel the show. There were no announcements telling us anything. not a good thing.
There was absolutely NOTHING in most of the lounges. In the ONYX Lounge there was nothing going on for the entire trip.Maybe 2 yrs ago there was Jazz & big band music. There were people in their 50-60 and there was really nothing for them to listen to. No Jazz or dancing, nothing. The two comedians were in the Criterian lounge and there wasn't enough seating for everyone that wanted to see them to sit. The comedian should have been in the EMPTY theater where there was plenty of room.. When there was finally a jazz preformance it was at midnight the night before we got into Miami. bad planning. It just wasn't good. There was very little going on at the pool, entertainment there was sporatic at best.
Food and Dining
I've been on this particular ship a number of times and the food this time was only OK, service was excellent
