Review for Carnival Destiny to Caribbean - Eastern

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was our first cruise and we were so excited to be going to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay and Nassau. We met people on line and had our tours booked and was ready to go. Then the day before we get an e-mail stating that our itinerary had been changed. Our new port included Key West Florida (they couldn't take us to another port outside of the USA?). We were sad but decided to go anyway as we ...

10+ Cruises • Age 2020s

The ONLY reason that we booked this cruise was to go to Turks and Caicos. That was one place in the Caribbean that we had not been. We are from FL and could have cancelled and gotten our money back when we learned at the last minute that there was a change in two of the ports. We are a retired couple with lots of cruise and general travel experience, and had never been on Carnival but decided ...

I booked the klove Christian cruise early as it always sells out. This is paid out over the year and when you go it's all paid for and you are so ready to go and spend some premium time with the Father,and theSon. Lay on the deck in the sun and just reflect on where your life has been and where you and Jesus are going together. My hubby and I also were looking forward to some quality time with ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

On reaching the pier we heard for the first time our ports of destinations had been changed, a little late to make any other plans so off we went. Pleasant experience checking in and we reached the lobby in no time. We first checked on shore excursions as ours had been canceled, worked this out with great help from the staff and were informed of the credit we would receive because of the change. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

As stated in my subject line, I'm a first time cruiser, but prior to my cruise I did an extensive amount of research so that I made the best out of my trip. And thanks to Cruise Critic for a lot of good advice in my research. I was a bit apprehenive about cruising on the Destiny as it had not received the best reviews. But my girlfriend's boss and family had already booked their cruise and ...

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and that the Destiny will no longer be the Destiny after her refurbishment in February when she will then be renamed the Sunshine. We chose the early saver option and chose cabin 2311, an aft interior stateroom. Having never stayed on the lower decks on any of our other cruises I really did not look at the location except for the fact it was close to ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My husband booked a Carnival Cruise on the Destiny as a surprise for my fortieth birthday, so I didn't have a chance to research the ship extensively. Upon arriving at the port in Miami, we stood in line and got through security quickly. The staff were efficient and friendly. We had brought a case of water which was pulled aside for a 'water check' which consisted of them taking several ...

Decent Ship with Very Good Crew

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

As noted Adults Only, and there were very few kids on board because it was Oct 1-6. Of our 5 prior cruises, 3 were with Kids, and this was a BIG difference - normally we take 7 day cruises, I'll break this down into logical segments as follows: Ship, Stateroom, Destinations, Food, Crew, Entertainment. SHIP: We had the advantage of previously cruising on Later editions of this Class of ...

DON'T BUY EXPENSIVE JEWELRY ON CRUISES!

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Cruising is is fun vacation BUT don't be taken in by the 'deals' on board! Jewelry on board is from a 3rd party vendor (Starboard Cruise Services), NOT CARNIVAL. The "UNCONDITIONAL GUARANTEE" Return is NOT EASY. My boyfriend purchased a $2,500 ring on board for me and we decided to return it before the cruise was over (we found something prettier in Grand Turk) HOWEVER the 'Carnival Destiny ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

My cruise on the Carnival Destiny was my fourth cruise. Three of the four cruises that I have taken have been on Carnival Ships. I cruised on Labor Day because my daughter got married on the ship before it left the port. We had to arrive at the port early and board at 10:30 a.m. because of the wedding ceremony. Getting on board of the ship went smoothly. If you are carrying water or soda ...
