Hi all!! I just got back from the Carnival Destiny last night and wanted to say I had a blast!!
The ship could use a little remodeling in places, but all in all it was a good time. The shops are nice, the staff was great and so helpful to us! We had two small children with us and everyone was just great with them.
Our cabin steward, Dee, was awesome! She wanted to know everyone's name when we got there and she remembered everyone's name the whole week. I just thought that was amazing with the number of people that come and go from the ship!
Our head waiter, Asim, was fantastic as well! He was very knowledgable about food and food service and shared some great stories with us from his home country of Croatia. He has been on the ship 7 months now....I can't imagine it!
I think everyone on the ship works very hard to make the stay as memorable as possible! Jorge the Cruise Director was great too. I still think he was a comedian in a former life! The shows that I saw were pretty good. Just wish they would start them a little earlier than 10:30. By the time I toured the island and ate dinner, I was tired and never made it to 10:30 most nights!
! I'm a party pooper!
So, all in all it was a good trip. My favorite islands were St. Thomas and Barbados....would love to go back to those two some day. Martinique was o.k., but just not a lot to do there! And Aruba, well, I could do without that place! The winds are so strong and the sand just pelts you and it hurts! I had welts on my legs and it hurt for a few days! If I don't ever go back to Aruba, I would not be heartbroken!
The Destiny was a great ship and I would highly recommend it!
