I have only been on the Conquest but may be able to help....
Try the Library if you have one, will be non-smoking, quiet & very few vistors (nice plush reading chairs & couch if you want to doze off!!!).... I also found that as you exit from the Piano Bar the outside decks had very little trafic & empty lounges (one side is non-smoking & smoking on the other side.....
We also liked to set at a table with an ocean view in the restraunt that has the bufet ( on off hours), the coffe, tea & hot chocalate serving stations were open..... Hope this helps, should be the same for the Destiny...

The buffet diner off hours sounds good, you can also try the upper seating area of the buffet dining. There is two levels of outside deck on the very front of the ship not many people know about. You can only access it from the hallways of the passenger cabin area . I "think" its like deck 7 or 8 way up front. If the ship is moving, you MUST be very careful opening the door for it is very windy up there. At night it is very dark, great place for veiwing the stars. Good Luck on your cruise.
I discovered those decks up front. Great spot. I think there is a game room that is quiet. I think that they don't mind if you sit in the disco during the day if it is not in use. The ship is quiet during the morning if you are an early riser. I am often the first one on the deck at 6-6:30.
Ultimately, the only power to which a man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
I too found the quiet deck up front. We sailed on the inagural sailing on the Destiny. try going to the Veranda deck and go all the way front and open the door and go onto the deck there. It's quiet and very few people go there. there also is a deck you can get to through a doorway that is past the jogging track. just keep going towards the bow and youll see it
