Ship Facts: Carnival Destiny Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Destiny Deck Plans
Enjoyed the Carnival Destiny
Our first cruise ever was on the Destiny to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau and we enjoyed it very much and are saving up for another cruise.

We stayed at the downtown Miami Hilton the night before and took a taxi to the cruise port about 10 am so I think we avoided the crowds and boarded quickly and easily. When we woke up that morning we could even see our cruise ship outside our hotel window.

Our steward, Vilma, was very friendly and helpful and provided excellent service. Our room, 7103, had plenty of closet and drawer space. We even got Miami tv stations in during the entire cruise.

The food in the buffet was good but not great except for the melons which were perfectly ripe and delicious. The food in the main dining room was very good but sometimes was a little cold so I would suggest getting there right on time as I suspect a lot of the food is cooked at the start of the service. The service in the dining room was very good.

We went to many of the shows and enjoyed them. They are not full scale broadway shows but were entertaining.

I think the music onboard the ship was very good. Several rooms on floor five and the center on floor three had musicians playing regularly in the evening and they were all very good and I enjoyed listening to them.

We tried to see the comedian several times but found out that we really needed to get there early to get a seat so we ended up missing him as we never got there early.

We went to the spa the first morning and got a couples massage which was wonderful. We went to the spa raffle the first night and did not win anything but did get a flyer for a good special which we took advantage of.

We also did the chef's table one night and really enjoyed it. it was 7 courses of wonderful food with wonderful service and we enjoyed talking with the chef. It also included wine and a photo and we felt it was worth the 75 pp charge.
