As stated in my subject line, I'm a first time cruiser, but prior to my cruise I did an extensive amount of research so that I made the best out of my trip. And thanks to Cruise Critic for a lot of good advice in my research. I was a ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers and were not thrilled with our first Carnival cruise which was under a year ago. The wait for food was so long that we left really disappointed and shared our comments with Carnival via email. Surprise, surprise, ... Read more

I have only one complaint about my recent cruise on the Carnival Destiny. The guy making the omelettes has to learn to make more than one at a time. I heard that men are bad at multitasking , but come on man! It was a beautiful 5 days, ... Read more

Being Platinum members embarkation was a breeze. But once onboard you could tell that this ship is really due for help which we knew it is getting. Our room had been refurbished already - flat screen, new bathroom, cabinets seemed ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and that the Destiny will no longer be the Destiny after her refurbishment in February when she will then be renamed the Sunshine. We chose the early saver option and chose cabin 2311, an aft ... Read more

Destiny is absolutely a family oriented ship and we went during Thanksgiving week so I knew that there would be a lot of children on the ship but the kids took over. All the pools and hot tubs were completely packed with kids constantly ... Read more

Cruising is is fun vacation BUT don't be taken in by the 'deals' on board! Jewelry on board is from a 3rd party vendor (Starboard Cruise Services), NOT CARNIVAL. The "UNCONDITIONAL GUARANTEE" Return is NOT EASY. My boyfriend purchased a ... Read more

From beginning to end, this vacation was destined for disaster. The room was filthy, even after the second time they so called "cleaned it". Rug had not been vaccumed then cleaned, sheets were stained and hairy. Disgusting. Not to ... Read more

My husband booked a Carnival Cruise on the Destiny as a surprise for my fortieth birthday, so I didn't have a chance to research the ship extensively. Upon arriving at the port in Miami, we stood in line and got through security ... Read more

We planned on a quick fall getaway and the price of this cruise sealed the deal. We cruise often-about twice a year-and have been on Carnival 3 times before. We usually favor Celebrity and RCCL, but the price for this trip was too good to ... Read more

As noted Adults Only, and there were very few kids on board because it was Oct 1-6. Of our 5 prior cruises, 3 were with Kids, and this was a BIG difference - normally we take 7 day cruises, I'll break this down into logical segments as ... Read more

I was on Destiny back in 2008 and as she gets ready to be transformed into the new Sunshine - I was thinking that perhaps her condition had really gone south - I was pleased at the condition of the ship. The ship was very clean and looked ... Read more

My Fiancee and I had a great time on the cruise. I'll describe some of the highlights. Embarking process: this was fast and easy. We showed up about a hour before the cruise left the port so we had no lines to wait in. We were allowed a ... Read more
