Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 24, 2012
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Ms. Anita Andelic and Chefs made sure we received the best service during our dining experience. Our steward, Jean, took time to make our room look so special and clean. Our waiters, Jose and Anthony, both took time to ask about our day and showed sincere appreciation of us dining with them. The ship was clean and maintained (hard to do with so many guests on board!) Activities were few. We would have liked to enjoy more family activities that were not offered.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We have special needs due to severe food allergies. We truly expected to not eat on the cruise and packed our own necessities. We were surprised on the willingness from all the Chef's and staff to make sure we enjoyed a wonderful dining experience. Amazing staff!


5 out of 5
Appreciated having the next day's schedule on our bed. Easy to follow and diverse options. We suggested more activities available. For example, an activity scheduled was "laser tag". Great activity...but only one time. We could not participate at this time. More times and more activities....

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Absolutely perfect! Again, we cannot thank the crew enough for making our dining safe (we trusted) and delicious! Even the Chef in the pizzaria made us a special dough, so we could come and order at our leisure.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Decor was outdated, but all areas were clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Decor was outdated. Size of room for comfortable and bed was roomy. When cruising on the Destiny, we would book same location. Condition of stateroom was clean and met our needs. Room was quiet except for the staff setting up chairs in the morning on the deck above us (we were in room 1017 Spa Deck).

Pros: The service, room, and dining experience.

Cons: activities
