Default Thoughts on Destiny

We are considering booking the Destiny for the 5 night Eastern ininerary. Just wanting to see what you guys have to say about her as well as Grand Turk island. Thanks for help.

We have done the 5 night Eastern on Destiny and highly recommend it.
Grand Turk is a great beach day. Just walk off the ship and you are there. No need for an excursion or cab. Beach chairs are free. MargaritaVille is right there with a great pool and music.

We did 2 five day back to backs last month - the 5 day eastern to Grand Turk and then the 5 day western to Jamaica and Grand Cayman. We had a great time. Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay were our favorite stops. We love relaxing on beautiful beaches and we were not disappointed. We spent the day around the lovely pool at Margaritaville in Grand Turk sipping on margaritas.
The only negative we could find with the Destiny was that the hull of the ship needed a paint job, and you can't see the outside once you board, so it certainly didn't spoil our vacation. Overall, it was a great 10 days. We will more than likely book our next cruise on the Destiny or whatever other ship is going to Grand Turk and HMC

Hi rsumrow79;

We just got off the Destiny last January and are booked again this coming January 1/25/2010 doing the same cruise! You will love the beaches at
Grand Turk and Halfmoon Cay and Kelli loved the shopping in Nassua.
We got a great price on a balcony cabin and saved 220.00 on our up coming 2010 cruise on the balcony cabin over what we paid this January.
You can't beat that!! We had also done this same cruise on the Imagination before the Destiny started doing it. As you can tell this is our favorite cruise since we salied on the Norway years ago!

You guys will really enjoy it!!!!

Lee & Kelli

PS: PM us if you have any questions??

Thanks for your thoughts guys. We are now trying to decide between the 5 night Gand Turk, Half Moon Cay route or the 4 night Key West/Cozumel trip. Heather has never been to Key West, so she is partial to that. 2 quick questions:

1. The deck plans look very similar to Glory, is that so?

2. Is there a Supper Club on Destiny?

Thanks for all of your help.

Randy and Heather

They are slightly different ship's the Glory and the Destiny.
No special resturant on the Destiny.

If the prices wasn't to much different (??) I would go with the five night cruise over the four night. We like Key West to but this five night is our
favorite cruise. We like beaches so that made it easy for us.

With us we just enjoy being a ship! Any cruise is good!

Take care;

Lee & Kelli
