Wonderful cruise, 18 days of bliss. If you are unhappy on shore then you will be unhappy cruising. A few points: 1. Being chilled does not make you sick. Diseases make you sick. 2. Hand sanitation was everywhere on board. ... Read more

I did have some reservations about this cruise. First of all I assumed since the the ship was heading to Italy for conversion to Carnival Sunshine, there will be work done on the ship during the cruise. Second, I did not consider Carnival ... Read more

We have enjoyed 26 cruises, 4 of them transatlantic, and all of them have met or exceeded our expectations. Just because the Destiny was headed for refurbishment, shouldn't have meant the passengers had to deal with the de-construction ... Read more

So this review maybe a waste of time as Carnival Destiny no longer exist. But after reading the first couple of reviews from fellow passengers on my cruise I had to write. I'm not sure we were on the same cruise. First off I agree the ... Read more

This cruise was the 10th cruise for my wife and I, and we were a little disappointed. Carnival is our favourite cruise line up to this point, but I'm not sure if I would do any cruise more than 7 days with them again. There was no ... Read more

This was my 8th transatlantic cruise. Previously I had high marks for Carnival. PRO: 95% of staff were aces. CON: By day 4 I had asked if I could get an airlift from the ship to our first port. The activities director would be good ... Read more

This was my seventh transatlantic sailing and I know what to expect. I saw this cruise on Carnival and the price was good so I booked it using my personal vacation planner at Carnival. I am a platinum sailor and very familiar with ... Read more

The cruise that me (and ALL the other passengers) booked was to Half Moon Cay, Nassau, and Grand Turk. At the last minute Carnival changed the itinerary to Key West (anyone can drive there) Freeport and Nassau. Their reasoning is that ... Read more

On reaching the pier we heard for the first time our ports of destinations had been changed, a little late to make any other plans so off we went. Pleasant experience checking in and we reached the lobby in no time. We first checked on ... Read more

We went on our first cruise eve aboard the Carnival Destiny. The experience was so bad we will never cruise again, at least not with Carnival. The staff was extremely rude and inattentive, we were told constantly "I don't know" by multiple ... Read more

I was somewhat apprehensive (for lack of a better word) about going on this cruise after reading some of the other less than positive reviews of the Carnival Destiny on Cruise Critic, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Embarkation at ... Read more

That was my first cruise, and for a reason of timing I could choose another cruise line even if some friend warned me about Carnival. I have to say that I could notice that the ship was in need of an overall make over. No reason to ... Read more

The ONLY reason that we booked this cruise was to go to Turks and Caicos. That was one place in the Caribbean that we had not been. We are from FL and could have cancelled and gotten our money back when we learned at the last minute that ... Read more

Yes, Destiny is due for it's makeover to become the Sunshine but I wanted to take the time to give some positive feedback. I have always had the image of these big ships as being very crowded and unmanageable. With a little work and ... Read more
