Sail Date: December 01, 2012
Ship: Carnival Destiny (RETIRED) 28
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 5 years ago
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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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.

Shows were somewhat amateur and shopping was the big deal and not our interest.
