Great Service on a Tired Ship

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The Destiny is a tired old ship but the crew does their best to overcome that weakness. The only real failing is the public restrooms. The staff makes effort to always call the guest by name and show a valid interest in how they are enjoying themselves. Nassau is a good place to stay on board unless you like constant pressure to buy things. Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay were great.

Pros: Well trained personnel pleased to serve\, Well presented stateroom\, Excellent food

Cons: Ship is old (going for refurbishment in Feb 2013)\, More focus on selling than entertaining

Recommends Carnival Destiny (RETIRED)? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship is scheduled for complete refurbishment enough said.
Food and Dining
Buffet is typical and something we avoid. The dining rooms are wonderful with excellent food and service. Room service is free and available 24 hours a day.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom is good size and kept clean.
Service and Staff
Friendly and helpful and makes effort to call guest by name.
Shows were somewhat amateur and shopping was the big deal and not our interest.
