First off I want to say I love cruising but this Cruise was the worst cruise I've ever been on. My Husband and I were excited about going because this cruise was our birthday cruise and our 1 year wedding anniversary cruise. The week ... Read more

Forced myself to suspend my general dislike of cruise ships and Carnival in particular. Sailed on the Fascination in 2004. Always been one who prefers spending time at the destination rather than on getting there, which is why I prefer air ... Read more

Being skeptical of sailing on Carnival due to past experiences, including being served urine flavored Sea Bass, I was talked into sailing with my sister-in-law on the Carnival Destiny. Which actually this ship is probably appropriately ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise overall and 2nd with Carnival. Both of our cruises with Carnival have come since the economic melt down so I don't know if is due to cuts that Carnival has made and perhaps RCCL has done the same thing, but it felt ... Read more

5 night cruise started great and were told of itinerary being altered because of Hurricane Issac (went to Cayman Islands first). Embarkation - went fast and boarding was orderly. Good well designed terminal at Port of Miami. Cabin - ... Read more

This was our second and third trip on Destiny as we did a Back 2 Back Last time was 2010 where we had a Aft Balcony. During the summer, we know that we like side balconies a lot more. My D/W and I are both platinum members on Carnival and ... Read more

This was our second trip on Destiny. Last was 2009. 5 days from MIA. We are both platinum members on Carnival so we did get some extra service and attention. Aug 20 to Aug 25-- we missed the stop at Cayman, which was the main reason ... Read more

I traveled to Miami the night before and treated myself to the JW Marriott Marquis. If you are traveling out of state, I highly recommend flying in the night before! It takes away most of the stress the morning of embarkation. I got to ... Read more

My wife and I took our first cruise August 11th to the Western Carribbean on Carnival's Destiny ship (5 days). We set sail from Miami with stops in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman. Now I understand why so many people enjoy cruising! ... Read more

Sure, you get what you pay for, but even a frugal cruiser should expect a clean ship and air conditioning. My group (3 inside cabins, one balcony) endured this cruise in sauna-like cabins. My balcony cabin was barely tolerable, but the ... Read more

The Carnival Destiny is a beautiful ship, nice cabins at good prices, nice entertainment choices in the evening. We had a lovely time (how could you not on vacation?) and thoroughly enjoyed our balcony cabins. Watching the ship depart ... Read more

There have been several negative reviews of the Destiny -- and just let me say she does need some refurbishment, so the drydock and move to the Sunshine is needed soon -- but overall it is a great ship and we had a FANTASTIC time. My ... Read more

Let me just say that I am not a seasoned veteran cruiser, nor would I consider myself a complainer type person. But I will say this--it's a good thing that Destiny will be undergoing a makeover in the next few months. The floors ... Read more

Just back from my 1st cruise with my fiance, brother and sister n law. We sailed to Ocho Rios Jamaica & Grand Cayman. I read several reviews and spoke to people that have cruised with Carnival and was conflicted about what to expect. I ... Read more

Getting to the ship was a nightmare thanks to the parade for the Miami Heat. I really feel sorry for all those who had to work and drive around the Port of Miami. Why the celebration was scheduled for the middle of a work day is beyond ... Read more

This was my second sailing on the Destiny in a year. The first was to Cozumel and Key West 9 months ago, and my 3rd Carnival cruise overall. While I was extremely impressed with my first Carnival cruise in 2003, I noticed a decline in ... Read more

Pre-cruise, boarding: We flew to Miami the night before and stayed at the Marriott's Spring House Suites. This hotel has a free airport shuttle and also a shuttle to the cruise terminal which costs $5 per person. I thought this was ... Read more

The Port of Miami really had its act together when it came to getting on the ship. We arrived at the port about 12:30 and were on-board in less than 15 minutes. Very fast, even compared to Tampa and Galveston, which I thought were very ... Read more

This was my third cruise. I was severely disappointed by the lack of service, quality of food and general ambiance of the ship. Having been on the Splendor, I made the mistake of thinking every Carnival cruise staff was trained with the ... Read more

Just got off the Carnival Destiny last Thursday after ports of Jamaica & Grand Cayman. The reviews that we read prior to leaving for this trip had us terrified that we made a huge mistake in picking this ship! Take them for what they're ... Read more

This was the first cruise for me, DH, and our two kids, ages 8 and 10. We booked the Destiny because of the length (5 nights) and the ports of call (Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau). We had a fabulous time and have mostly good ... Read more

This was our first cruise so take it at that face value. We have traveled extensively so we are picky at times. Carnival Destiny fit not only our budget but also our timeline for this short vacation. We are heading to Europe in the ... Read more
