Carnival Destiny image
My husband and I were especially pleased with the quality of the food on the Destiny Carnival, as well as the professional, pleasant and helpful waitstaff. We traveled April 4-9 to Nassau, Grand Turk and Half-Moon Bay. Our server, Nunu, and her assistant, Rajuvita, were both exceptional. The American waitstaff industry could learn a thing of two from the very gracious SE Asian staff on the Destiny. The only downfall -- loads of sunseekers on deck, so it was often difficult to find a spot in the sun to hang with our newfound friends. Otherwise, a superb experience. Thanks, Carnival. What a wonderful week full of memories.

positives of cruise Positives of Cruise
Great quality shows - the dancers were excellent, and the costumes amazing. However, if the female dancers are going to flash their rumps 90% of the time, why can't we see more of the male dancer's rumps? Fair is fair... (I heard lots of comments about the bare rumps -- including that the girls were in excellent shape and their rumps didn't jiggle -- but it remained an awkward part of conversation, none-the-less.)

negative of cruise Negatives of Cruise
I felt crowded on the decks when trying to soak in the sun while onboard.

Forewarn travelers that Nassua is NOT a shopping mecca as we'd been told. If it hadn't been for our jaunt to Atlantis, I would have been completely disappointed in Nassua. It was dingy, dirty and people were mean at the Straw Market - obviously a depressed society.

Instruct fliers with 12 noon or earlier flights to take luggage with you. We had traveling nightmares over lost luggage on the carrousel after debarkation.

I would reccomend this cruise to others.

I think this cruise is suitable for Couples.
