This was our first experience cruising. We selected Carnival because of price and needed a short duration. Cruise was enjoyable. At the time we cruised, the ship name was Carnival Destiny.

As a first time cruiser our experience was both good and bad. We selected a short length cruise because of price and available time off. This was a mistake because of the number of families with children, many of whom were left unattended and very disrespectful. Jamaica was scary. We had the horseback ride in the ocean excursion and our tour guides were required to carry firearms because of the constant threat of attack. Grand Cayman was extremely enjoyable as we strolled down the seven mile beach and found a place to relax. There we rented kayaks and snorkeling gear. Simply beautiful.

Short length cruises attracts many families with children who cannot afford the longer length cruises. Unattended children everywhere and many disrespectful.
