I have cruised two other times and was very disappointed in Carnival Destiny. The ship looked old and not well maintained. It was either too hot or too cold in the indoor areas. The rooms were well stocked and beds turned down nightly. The food in the dining room arrived lukewarm and the food on the Lido deck was discount buffet quality. I was looking forward to the elegance and fantastic food that I thought was standard on cruises and felt let down. Also the dining room did not enforce the dress code and many diners were super casual in shorts, t-shirts, and flip flops.
