Review summary

We were very pleased with the renovation of the Destiny....very unique décor thru ship.

We were equally pleased with the boutique food concept....the Italian and Asian eatery as well as the Blue Iguana were way above average cruise fair.....But, the best was Guy's burgers...we split one every day.

The amount of deck space devoted to adults has increased dramatically....but the pools on this ship are lacking in capacity.

The dinning was excellent as always and the service impeccable....aesthetically however the dinning rooms are nicer on other ships in the fleet.

Our cabin was only an ocean view but renovated and nice and roomy.

The bars on the ship all offered unique drinks and fantastic staff....most unique is the Alchemy Bar.

The main shows in the Liquid Lounge were unbelievable.....we have been cruising for years and never have been impressed this much with the singers, dancers, choreography, and set production...Fantastic!

The ports of call rotate but we were so happy to be able to visit Aruba and Curacao again and we were totally impressed with Grand Turk.
