I haven't been on Destiny but did stay in a penthouse suite on the Conquest. I would think all their penthouses are about the same. The room was awesome and you won't be sorry if you get a chance to see any of the other rooms. You will have a huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub, double sinks and a dressing/make-up area with seating. Have fun on your first cruise. We don't spend a lot of time in the room when we cruise but it is worth the extra price in our opinion.
You are going to very cruiser friendly ports. Safe and fun...
Just remember to keep your watch on SHIP time...ignore port times. The ship sails on ship time....it does not care what time it is in the port.
If you like speciality coffees, like expressos and cappicinos...they cost extra on the Promenade at the coffee bar.... BUT you can get them for free in the Main Dining Room at any meal.
Steam and Sauna rooms (separate for men and women) are always free...as is the GYM, changing rooms and gym showers. If you want a locker, those are also free...but they will hold your Sail and Sign card until they get the key back.
You will have a little "newsletter" waiting on your bed in the cabin called the Fun Times. It will tell you when and where everything is going on.
Have a great cruise...

I love to go on a cruise so me and my husband have done five cruises uptill now. We had got many enjoyments and the most memorable memories of life from that cruise. There are lots of activities on ship so that you can play it and enjoy the stay on ship. The food on ship is just delicious and very tasty so I hope that you will also enjoy your cruise vacation.
