Wonderful Last Sailing - Comedians Galore

Review for Carnival Destiny to Transatlantic

Wonderful cruise, 18 days of bliss. If you are unhappy on shore then you will be unhappy cruising. A few points: 1. Being chilled does not make you sick. Diseases make you sick. 2. Hand sanitation was everywhere on board. Everywhere. The highlights: 1. The comedians the first 9 days were outstanding. They did shows over and above the call of duty. Very funny, very giving, ...

I had write this review and let everyone know that the last cruise of the Destiny was great. I did the research before we booked and knew that the ship was going to be refitted. In preparation of any remodeling, there will be things to do in order for the remodeling to go smoothly. I expected some renovations to take place while we were on board ship. I will try to address some of the issues ...

So this review maybe a waste of time as Carnival Destiny no longer exist. But after reading the first couple of reviews from fellow passengers on my cruise I had to write. I'm not sure we were on the same cruise. First off I agree the HAVAC system did not seem to be able to produce heat and yes the cold air blew pretty hard into our room until they came in and repaired it perfectly. And yes ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was my 8th transatlantic cruise. Previously I had high marks for Carnival. PRO: 95% of staff were aces. CON: By day 4 I had asked if I could get an airlift from the ship to our first port. The activities director would be good on a 3 day cruise. No direction, no organization, short sighted on planning and bottom rung entertainment. If you enjoy bingo, trivia, knitting, crafts and ...

We have enjoyed 26 cruises, 4 of them transatlantic, and all of them have met or exceeded our expectations. Just because the Destiny was headed for refurbishment, shouldn't have meant the passengers had to deal with the de-construction zone inconveniences and noises throughout the night. Other passengers have described the poor food and entertainment and sealed-off elevators, etc. However, ...

I did have some reservations about this cruise. First of all I assumed since the the ship was heading to Italy for conversion to Carnival Sunshine, there will be work done on the ship during the cruise. Second, I did not consider Carnival Cruise Line as a top tier cruise line since it makes it's money on four to seven day "party cruises" (some friends have call Carnival "a floating trailer ...

The cruise that me (and ALL the other passengers) booked was to Half Moon Cay, Nassau, and Grand Turk. At the last minute Carnival changed the itinerary to Key West (anyone can drive there) Freeport and Nassau. Their reasoning is that the "ship was broken and they were unable to parallel park" (this is not the passengers issue and they should do maintenance on the ships with all the money they ...

We always look forward to a cruise as we seek out unique cruise itineraries with no real expectations other than to find a good & pleasant time enjoying the moment of any cruise. Again Carnival exceeded our expectations. This cruise had scheduled to leave at 11:59 at night from Miami. They finally posted boarding time from 1 PM to 11 PM. Embarkation: Very smooth as we arrived at 11:45 to wait in ...

This cruise was the 10th cruise for my wife and I, and we were a little disappointed. Carnival is our favourite cruise line up to this point, but I'm not sure if I would do any cruise more than 7 days with them again. There was no heating in our cabin and there was nothing that anyone could do about it. The only choices for climate control was a knob on the vent on the ceiling which regulated ...

This was my seventh transatlantic sailing and I know what to expect. I saw this cruise on Carnival and the price was good so I booked it using my personal vacation planner at Carnival. I am a platinum sailor and very familiar with Carnival. Boarding was a breeze and there we no lines at all. Went directly to my outside stateroom which was nice and big, clean and updated. We had nine ...
