Carnival Cruise Lines Carnival Destiny Southern Caribbean April 14, 2001

Let me say that I really enjoyed my cruise despite being on the Destiny. Our ports of call were San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Lucia, Aruba, Curcao. The islands were beautiful and the weather was fantasitic.

The Destiny was my second cruise. My first thought when we arrived at the Destiny was that this is one big ship. I really enjoyed the room I had. We were upgraded to a outside cabin with a balcony which my wife & I really enjoyed. I also found the room to be larger than my previous cruise on Celebrities Mercury. I also enjoyed the ice cream machine & all night pizza.( my waist line still hasn't recovered) That's about all the good things I have to say. I found the Destiny to be to big and have to many people. I usually used the stairs as I could walk 5 flight before a elevator would become available. There was a constant bad smell like garbage in the aft elevator area. I found the food to be incredibly average. One night they had creme broule(hope I spelled that correct) on the menu. I couldn't wait for desert. When they brought out desert I recieved what had to be the worlds worst creme broule. The salads were as good as you can get at mcdonalds. Yes they had all the food you could eat, but the quality was bad. On the last night when they offered us a copy of carnivals reicipie book I almost started to laugh. I really enjoyed our dinner guests and they agreed with us that they would never go on the destiny again. One couple said they had sailed with Carnival before and had a good time, they just thought the ship was to big, ie. to many people.

If you're looking to get drunk and eat bad food and don't mind people letting their kids run wild go on the carnival destiny. I won't be there.

To be fair I loved the ports of call and can't wait to go back to the southern carribean.
