Default Carnival Destiny

I was just wondering why everyone says the Carnival Destiny is such a bad ship? My family and I are going on the Destiny April 9th 2006.

Well - first of all - not EVERYONE says that. There are a few, granted - but it woudn't matter what ship you were talking about - there is always going to be somebody that doesn't like it.
We haven't gone on the Destiny yet - we are scheduled for May of 2006. But I've read plenty of good reviews - and many people say that they would not hesitate to pick the Destiny again.
I think the problem is the age - the Destiny is not one of the newest ships - but it doesn't have to be new. We went on the Inspiration last year - and she was about the same age... we also had read some negative reviews - but we have a fantastic time and had nothing to complain about.
I have no doubt that I (and you) will have a great cruise on the Destiny. If you go looking for a fantastic time - you will most likely have one. Just don't believe everything you read.
Happy Sailing....

hi. i was on the destiny this past nov. having gone on a few other cruises before, it was a little bit rough on the edges as any older ship would be. BUT, IT WAS A GREAT CRUISE. you will have a blast. a real party ship, with great entertainment and a lot of activities. and the ports of call are the best in the carrib. enjoy

The Destiny had a lot of neat features that its sisters/cousins didnt- like the swim up bars, staircase from nightclub to the Onyx room... the layout of the dining rooms was a little confusing, but otherwise it was a great ship (I concur with the great nightlife comment!). Have a great cruise!

My husband and I are also booked on Destiny on April 9th. We are anxious to cruise on a Carnival ship again. Don't believe everything you read. I have come to the conclusion that people love to complain about everything.
We love the ports on this cruise.
ENJOY!!!

The ship is fine. I personally didn't care for the decor; very sterile compared to her two sisters.

But we had great food, interesting ports, and a good time all around.

I read really good reviews of the Destiny and really bad reviews. I'm going on the Destiny in March. It'll be my 5th Carnival cruise so I'll let you know how it compares.

I'd like to know also as were sailing on her the 29 Apr 06. This will be our 5th cruise all with Carnival...and I have never been disappointed with them. I plan to have a great time and also planning to stay in San Juan for 3 extra days after the cruise. Remember is what you make of it, so enjoy it. Val
