Carnival Destiny Cruise Review by Kristpin
- Sail Date: November 2012
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
The food left a lot to be desired. The ship had the typically hot dog/hamburger & French fries all the time. The lunchtime & dinner buffet was wishy-washy and bland. The main dining room dinner was the best food on the ship.
Casino service was excellent. Blackjack dealers were amazing and always brought me good luck.
Spa had a raffle the first day. Make sure you show up for the drawing. They give away a ton of gift certificates but you have to be present. The spa is very clean and relaxing. They were running amazing spa specials all week so watch for different deals each day.
Gift shop: The gift shop told us that they were running a special on the alcohol on the first day of the cruise and the prices were going up the next day but they never went up. Don't buy you liquor from the cruise ship, buy it in Ochos Rios at the store outside the gates at the port. Prices are MUCH cheaper.

Beach BreakWe decided to Jump into a cab and go to seven mile beach. It was a $ 8 cab ride and about 5 minutes. It was the best decision. The water was crystal clear, sand was clean and they had public bathrooms, bar & restaurant, chair & umbrella rentals. Completely relaxing day. Easy to get back to the ship because cabs were constantly filling the parking lot. It was a very safe beach tooView All 146 Beach Break Reviews

We decided to book our tour threw Courtney based on the amazing reviews on cruise critics. And let me tell you that everyone is correct in saying Courtney is the best way to go when visiting the island. We went down the white river and although they said it had rapids they were medium but fun and inbetween the river was lazy.
