Review SummaryWe sailed on the Carnival Destiny for 5 days and enjoyed our trip but compared to other ships we have been on, the food was definitely not up to par. The dining room choices were varied but the quality and taste of most of the food we ordered was bland and tasteless, and one meal had to be returned because the fish was just not good. We enjoyed our balcony room and the entertainment was very good. We enjoyed all the shows and how well they were performed.
Now for the warning! Be aware that if you use your ship and sail card in the casino you will find $10 entertainment charges on your final bill. We only used cash in the casino and used our card to take money from one slot machine to another but at the end of the cruise we had (5) $10 charges on our final bill. When I called to protest because we had ONLY used cash, I was told that these charges could not be disputed. If they do that to every person who goes into the casino, then Carnivbal makes out like bandits!!
On a positive note the cruise director, Tex, was fantastic at his job. Always personable and upbeat.
