Booked this cruise for my husbands birthday. We did have a good time on the cruise. We made our own fun. Not a lot to do on board. Mainly trivia games. Went to the Gym most days. Ports were good. took a tour of Puerto Rico that was great. Just a little bus waiting for anyone. Grand Turk was a new experience and quite educational with the John Glenn Splashdown Information. We cruise a lot, so did not get off at the Bahamas and did a little shopping at the dock stores in St Thomas. Food was good the first 3 days and then seemed to not taste as good after that. Coffee was the best..very strong. Shows were good. I would not go on this ship again. Realized after we boarded that it was the "Destiny" they had painted it and changed the name to Sunshine. That Destiny Cruise was the worse cruise ever! Makes you wonder why they would have to change the name. Ship was still dirty and our balcony door would not stay shut. Crew was wonderful and tried to help all they could.
