5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 02, 2012
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

This is my second time on this ship but the overall service has significantly declined in quality. The ship is very old & needs to be out of service. There were parts of the ship that was leaking, scratchy from wear & tear etc. The captain, per the crew, tends to be consistently behind time with arriving & ports. As a result of this & combine with old ship features there was a lot of ROCKING & RATTLING when sailing. More than half the ship was sea sick from this.

Noonan the cruise director sucks! Played the worst games I've ever seen on a cruise and to top it off he did not even come prepared with the quarters to play his game. Very Low Budget!

Pros: the ports

Cons: the ship swaying back & fort and the low budget entertainment
