5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 02, 2012
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship was good and they constantly had people cleaning or fixing things. Even though there was a program for kids, they seemed to just run around unsupervised and the parents didn't care. Didn't make the pool, hot tubs, ge areas very enjoyable for the rest of us becaus rid was over run with teenagers making out in the hot tub and screaming. I spent the last day of the cruise inu cabin just for some peace and quiet.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffets were just ok, the same things every day, got kind of old. The dinner was hit or miss, it was either really good or not good at all.


3 out of 5
Plenty of options on the ship to. Goose from but after day 4 they ran out of options and keep doing what they have done for activities since the 1st day. The excursions were pricey but fun and you can only really see anything more on the islands through excursions. No real options to exPlore on your own.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
