Default Destiny vs. Pride

My husband and I plan to take our 2nd cruise with Carnival for our 5th anniversary in May. I need some help trying to decide between the Destiny(S.Caribbean) or the Pride(Mexican Riv). If you have done either or both please give me some helpful insight. Thanks!

Hi
Just got off the Destiny last Sunday -we went on this same ship last year.
Before that we were on the Pride and before that the Elation before the Pride replaced it out of LA.
We like the Pride as a ship the best of all the Carnival ships we have been on. But we probably liked the itinerary on the Destiny better. And since we tend to go the end of January the weather is better out of San juan than LA. We do love Cabo - but it was always only a half day there and I hate having to be tendered in. We like Aruba the best of all the ports on the 2 itineraries.
The Destiny as a ship is nice but showing it's age a little...the Pride was brand new when we went on and we loved the decorand layout of it.
I'm not sure if you are asking about the ship itself or the ports.
Anymore ?'s let me know.
Linda

Almost forgot on the last post....The water is nice and blue and the beaches have white sand in the Carribean. The sand can be kind of rough in Mexico and the water is not "pool blue" in Mexico. The scenery is much prettier in the carribean and varied on the Destiny itinerary.
