A terrible cruise
Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28 Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryWe missed 2 port visits because of weather (40 - 45 knot winds) and rough seas. We did get an overnight in Nassau though, but the shops close at 5 - 6 pm so nothing else to do but drink after that.
The problems with this cruise were not all weather related though. The atmosphere and entertainment (or lack there of) was also to blame. Oh yeah, and all of the drunk college kids!
Never again on Carnival and certainly not on Destiny!
Food and Dining
The buffet food was mostly disgusting, even for buffet food. The "scrambled eggs" werent fit for a pig to eat. Although the omlettes were good in the morning and the burgers were surprisingly good. The pizza was good but a bit under cooked.
The "caribbean" band was also dissapointing. We expected authentic caribbean music, but just got American songs with a caribbean beat. Shame on you again Carnival!
Service and Staff
The decor was hideous, and dark, but from what I could tell it was fairly clean and in OK shape considering the age.
Cabin / Stateroom
Thank God for the balcony because 3 full days a sea with horrible entertainment, we spent a lot of time in our room. The balcony was great for having a few beers on and relaxing.
Pros: The band Deshay was good.
Cons: the food, the ship itself, the entertainment, missing 2 port stops.
