does anyone know anything about the Carnival Destiny? I'm going this June with my daughter. We have booked the Penthouse suite! We are so excited.I know the ship is older but still saw wonderful reviews. what do ya think. Am I crazy or what?
I didn't have the Penthouse but I was in a suite. Hey.. If you can pay for it then go for it. You'll love the VIP checkin and the extras that go with being in a suite. Have a fantastic cruise.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

We have done suite on Destiny twice and loved the special checkin area there. I have posted a few photos in gallery under Destiny Suzy, we had a cat 11 suite, the difference is sofa may be a bit longer and have a "L" shape, another sitting chair, a bit larger floor space.
I loved having sliding doors for tub/shower, a lot of storage too.
We found suitcases store under bed, and if you really need it shoes store well in drawer under sofa. We had no trouble at all with age of ship, just noticed air conditioning not as cold as some ships, and when in port lesser as they don't have full power I was told.
Any particular questions ask here and I'll see what I can help you with.
