Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
ship was old but clean. No "welcome to port ' announcements. pools and hot tubs were too old and small, over crowded. not enough lounge chairs to lay in the sun... long, long, long lines at buffets. kids were in adult hot tubs.. Need supervision and adults only pool and hot tubs. kids do not pay for the cruises, adults do!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
food in dining rooms was very good, most of the buffets were good. but sometimes it was the same stuff every day. need more variety.


3 out of 5
Professional shows were very good, but a passenger talent show? Really? it was good.. but we didn't expect to see that.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
waitstaff and Maitre D' were excellent.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
ship was old, not always easy to navigate , i.e. to the dining rooms, the galley blocks some of the hallways, so you need to make sure you go on the correct elevator.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
no fridge, no clock, no flat screen tv, no control for the ac! Toilet didn't always flush in the early am (@8am). we had a balcony room ($$$), you expect more.

Pros: Shows, dinners

Cons: ship was old, small pools. Long wait to get off in Grand Cayman if you don't buy an excursion. Jamaica is unsafe to walk on you own, continual harassment by people trying to get you into their taxi to show you the island. Difficult to walk away, they follow you too.
