We went on the Destiny 5 months after its maiden voyage and stayed on the Lido deck. We absolutely loved it! It was great being on the same deck as the pools, food and bars. I don't remember being bothered by any noise at all. That cruise spoiled us and now we measure all others against it. We will be sailing on the Spirit to Hawaii in less than a month. I just hope it can compare to that cruise on the Destiny!
