Default carnival destiny 03-12-06 / 03-19-06

Hallo every body who was intrest in my destiny cruise 03.12.06 / 03.19.06

We where leaving on Saturday 11 march with a big limousine too the airport first we go too our father he was verry sick he had cancer and we say him good by for that cruise. We fly with u.s.airways too philidelfia and then too San Juan. It was too do but we were tired after this flight.

Sunday morning we visit old San Juan it was good so far. We saw the carnival destiny in the harbour a big ship.

We take a cab from our hotel Normandie a hotel look like a cruise ship was a good hotel. The cab was about 25 dolllars.

First day on the ship

We have a mini suite cabin nr 7214 so have a vip check in its god too do that they do everything for us. Then we walk in the ship every body is friendly and we walk around the ship starting on the lidodeck. And it was what we ecspect.
We take a little bit chinees food the wife’s take from the counter also good.
After that we go too the cabin a nice one feel good and think that we must have good time in there.

Second day st Thomas.

Virgin islands we took a cab too coral world a nice place too visit and intresting because we all like too go snorkling so we saw there what kind of fish we can sea by snorkling on the cruise.
We take a shoretour too trunkbay it was nice only the wether raining when we are on bourd of the ship too trunckbay but when we arrived it was nice 82 de grease. Snorkling and swimming. A nice day and good carrebean feeling

Third day. Dominica

We will go whalewatch in the morning we must be in the palladium lounch at 8.15 am. We here there that it will be at 1.30 pm because the ship had annchine problems they gone fixs him. So we decide too go from the ship and look for a taxi too go the rainforest a man who look for a cab for us bring us quick too a cab and we paid him 100 dollar after the taxiride we get 20 dollars back.
The taxi driver said its all right. So we take of for a nice ride. We look around the city and we have nice view from the ship laying in the harbour so up too pappa and mama watherfalls a local woming bring us up there. A nice walk with a lot of people there who think the same as we. We saw also twoo walkingwood who were making a third very intresting also for the local girl who was with us.
When we came back we go too the whale watch tour we are waiting a while 1 our and the catamaran came they fixt him. So we get a free tour and was a nice trip but after three times triing too make contact with the whales we smelt smoke fire on board. So we go back and saw after this dolphin it was nice.

Fourthday Barbados

We take a 4by4 tour it was nice and a good time in the car and we go too betsheba a nice place where surfers from all world wil come too surf ther only not today. After that we get punch and go too a other beach for swimming.
They bring us back too the ship.
In the afternoon we take a cab too the city too bay and look around

Fithday on the ocean

A nice and relexingday swimming sunbathing and casino I did it too good a machine with milking cows I get 277.15 dollar out of it.
Food was good cocktails were fine and the shows were great.

Sixday Aruba

A friend of us is waiting in the harbour he took us around the island first we go too the webcam on the beach we wave too our friends in the Netherlands.
After that we go too the lighthouse and look around. We go too his house get some koffee and go then for snorkling and the natural park too look in a gave it was intresting. After this we go too his wife se works in a diamante shop. After that we go too the harbour and do some shopping.

Sevensday a day at the ocean

A little confused after this nice cruise we must go back home and arriving in the morning of the eightsday at 7 am so we think but nothing at all. We must go too the palladium lounch there was skippy our cruise director he told us what too do when we arrived in San Juan at 7 am but after this story the captain had something too say. When we take of at Aruba a woman broke both legs so he decided too go back so where some time later at San Juan also we have engine problems so it must be 5 pm when we arrived at San Juan. A lot people I think 3000 at least sell mist the plane back home. They must have a hotel for 1 or 2 day’s and a later flight. We have booked a extra night in San Juan so we must not complain on the ship but when we were at home. We were every where on the ship this day a wunderful day and nice wether.
Eightday arriving day San Juan

Not 7 am. But 3 o clock pm we arrived in the harbour 4 pm we were docking and around 7 pm we came from the ship we took our luggage and go too hotel Normandie but at the port there are 3000 people waiting for 7 our at least and shout too us what was happening and why we are delayed.

Last day San Juan

We took a cab too old San Juan too visit a fort it was great. After this we go back too the hotel took our luggage and go back home.
It was a great cruise thank you all who have make this happened fur us

Hi arie,

Great review!

It sounds like you had a wonderful time! You seem like a person who doesn't let the little problems bother you.

We are going to Dominica on our next cruise and want to do the whale watching tour. I hope our tour boat isn't "broken" like your's was!

It was very smart of you to plan to stay in San Juan the night after the cruise. I'm sure you were glad not to have to try to reschedule your flight!

Maybe DH and I can cruise with you and your family some day,

Hi arie thank you for the review. It sounds like you had as great a time as we did even with the problems on the ship

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.
