Good cruise

Sail Date: October 11, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall the cruise was average. It was a quick getaway weekend for us, so we were just looking to relax. Adult only area was not reinforced which was frustrating (as we normally don't get a chance to use them because we have kids). The ship seemed to be a little dated from decor. Food service was vastly improved over our last sailing with Carnival.

Pros: The intinerary

Cons: The adult area was not reinforced.

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? No.

Ship Quality
This ship needs to be updated and my understanding is that is going to updated by next year with a massive\, dry dock overhaul.
Food and Dining
Much improved over what we had last time with Carnival. Could use additional dining options tho. Also seemed as tho the food service did not always follow the schedule.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room with a window and a door. The room seemed very small compared to other cruise lines\, figuring that this is due to the age of the ship possibly?
Service and Staff
The crew was not overly outgoing (with exception of dining room staff which did a great job). Minimal interaction with room steward\, etc...which was ok. With other cruise lines it seems as though they are more attentive making sure you don't need anything.
The entertainment that they did have was very good\, but the choice of activities was poor.
