A great relaxing vacation!

Sail Date: April 30, 2012

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The staff, service were all excellent. The only annoying part (which hurt my rating) is that events weren't described very well in the program; so we went to certain events that we found out didn't apply to us, etc. Also the best entertainment was very "lewd" - it would have been nice to have family-friendly entertainment that was equally nice. Also although the service was excellent; the food was "good" but not excellent.

Pros: service by staff

Cons: events were not well-advertised so I wasted time thinking certain events would be applicable to us that weren't.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? Yes!

There weren't enough "good" activity choices that appealed to me. The highest-quality activities were extremely lewd; and there was no family-friendly equivalent. Also the events were not described well in the schedule so hard to know whether we should plan on attending; we wasted time attending activities that didn't apply to us.
Children's Programs
Most of the "family friendly" activities were boring and repetitive - only a few of them were actually worth the time. The "better quality" events were all extremely lewd.
Food and Dining
dining service was excellent; food was "good" but not excellent
Ship Quality
great; I only wish they had a deeper, bigger pool; but everything else was really nice!
Cabin / Stateroom
our room was very comfortable and nice; no complaints
Service and Staff
they were all very helpful and no disappointments at all
