Hellish Destiny

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 ...

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. ...

That was my first cruise, and for a reason of timing I could choose another cruise line even if some friend warned me about Carnival. I have to say that I could notice that the ship was in need of an overall make ...
