DON'T BUY EXPENSIVE JEWELRY ON CRUISES!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
As far as the cruise on the Destiny Room 6280... It was the least favorite cruise that I have taken. However the Destiny Customer Service was very quick to respond and offer us solutions or concessions for our issues. The night club one level below us was so loud the floor in our cabin vibrated from the noise More until 2AM each night. We were told our cabin was a 'night owl cabin'. Then the ship was renovating the floor above us and drills and hammering woke us at 8AM each morning with electrical cords dangling from the balcony above us. They offered to move us to another cabin but we were traveling w friends and didn't want to be separated. They gave us a $95 credit to our cabin acct.
My final assessment would be the Destiny is old and dated but was very clean. Customer Service was responsive to all our needs. The waitstaff was polite but didn't understand English very well. (Asked for Lemonade, was brought a plate of lemons) The food was average for Carnival. Evening Dining service was rushed and took forever each night! Pizza was the worst thing I had on board. Carnival Cruises are cheap but you get want you pay for. IMHO the guests on the cheap Carnival Cruises do not dress appropriately for a cruise. They look sloppy in tank tops, baggy shorts, cut off jeans, flip flops, baseball caps. Note to ladies... Skin rolls are not the same as curves.
If I book another cruise with Carnival I will opt for one of their newer ships and will keep my boyfriend/husband away from the 'blue enhanced' diamonds on board! Less
Cabin review: 6280
6280 is A NIGHT OWL cabin because it is right above the Disco Club that is open each night at least until 2AM. You will hear the music and bass thumping! Bed and closets were great! Bathroom was very clean and newly updated. I would rather have been mid-ship and closer to an elevator.
Port and Shore Excursions
Small shopping area. Very expensive Margaritaville Restaurant. Pretty beach but very rough coral once in the water.
Princess Reunion Cruise
No personal service
Fantastic retirement cruise
