Carnival Destiny Dining

Editor Rating
Dining
3.0
The two-deck main dining rooms -- Universe Aft and Galaxy Forward -- offer two seatings for dinner (6 and 8:15 p.m.), and open-seating lunch and breakfast. The majority of tables seat four and eight; there are tables for two available, but not enough for the large number of passengers. Nightly entertainment by the waiters is part of the "Fun Ship" experience so look forward to a singing maitre'd and dancing busboys. The service in the dining room is efficient and professional. Menu selections are varied nightly.

The Sun and Sea, the lido buffet adjacent to the main pool, is a popular spot for breakfast and lunch though we found the selections limited and lines long. Breakfasts on port days were very crowded. Asian and Mexican stations (selections change each day) and a hamburger grill were quick alternatives to the regular buffet. A 24-hour pizzeria and Caesar salad bar were hits with the late-night crowd.

Also available on all of Carnival's ships is The Chef's Table dining experience, which affords a dozen passengers a multicourse dinner with a master chef, a private cocktail reception and a tour of the galley and its operations. This dining option usually takes place in a nontraditional venue, such as the galley or library, and it can be booked onboard at the information desk for a per-person cost of $75.
