The Carnival Destiney is a fine ship. Very well maintained, well layed out, and clean. It appears tp have been recently renovated.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Our dining room was excellent. The open dining area/grill was fast foodish and crowded. Some type of service is available 24/7, and our dining times were convenient.


5 out of 5
On board shows were entertaining and scheduled at convenient times. Good variety of entertainment.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service as it should be. Simply the best I've ever experienced. Courteous and cheerful all the time.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship is large enough to offer everything, without being too large to wander about. The decor is modern and tastefull.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our first stateroom suffered some kind of plumbing malfunction. We suffered a day of a very strong sewer smell before we complained. After alerting the crew, we were in a new stateroom within 2 hours. I can' think of anything the crew might have done differently to correct the problem.

Looked like a slum. We chose to stay on board, as it was only the first full day of the cruise. Other passengers seems to enjoy the day ashore.

Honestly, we were disappointed in Nassau. Except for The Atlantis Resort, what we saw was like any other tourist trap location we've been to, only slightly less affluent. Think Colon, Panama or Cairo.

Pros: Clean ship, excellent service

Cons: First cabin had a strong sewer smell

Recommends Carnival Fascination? Yes!
