A wonderful cruise!

Sail Date: February 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I found it to be a beautiful ship\, though I hear it will be even more splendid when it becomes the Sunshine.

Pros: The evening shows and the efficient\, friendly staff

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28? Yes!

Ship Quality
It was very clean and easy for us to move around in. A couple of the carpets were a little worn in places and they were already painting some slightly rusty spots. However\, these little things had no bearing on our overall enjoyment of the cruise! I still maintain it was a beautiful ship.
Food and Dining
Delicious and served hot by our friendly waiter Richard and his excellent backup staff.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were in room 2212\, which was quiet and very clean. Our excellent room steward was Kadek.
Service and Staff
Kudos to Kevin Noonan\, the entertainment director who somehow was everywhere at one time doing a fantastic job! Also hooray for Shorty who worked with Noonan\, Anita and her backup staff at the Universe dining room reception for our romantic tables for two\, the young woman at the New York Deli who always made excellent sandwiches to our liking\, and the entire courageous dance troop for their perfect\, spectacular shows despite the movement of the ship in the middle of the Atlantic!
Spectacular shows! (See above)
