Default Carnival Destiny or Triumph, which one is better.

Hey guys,

My family is trying to decide if we should go on the Carnival Destiny or the Carnival Triumph. We want this to be a fun filled vacation and we want the best. One that has alot of activities and entertainment. Which one would you guys suggest.

Hard One...
Both ships are basically the same, Destiny is slightly smaller, and the ports are alot better. But with Triumph going out of Miami, there would probably be more teens. Even if you decide to go out of San Juan there will still be teens, just maybe not as many.
So its basically up to the ports.

If I had to choose, since I have been on Victory (same as Destiny and Triumph) and I have already been to West and East Caribbean, I would choose Destiny going to Southern.

To sum it all up, the ships are basically the same, so dont worry there, just decide if the ports are important.

Any questions lettme know.

Do they have a teen club or any activities for older teens (16 and up) on either of these ships? What is the age to get into the adult club?

Nope, no teens lounges or discos, like I said they share w/ the adult disco, to get into the adult club you have to be 18 or older. But they let almost anyone in, and there is a under the disco is a lounge, and the disco dance floor sinks down into it, there are stairs on the dance floor that lead down to it and you can get in there by using them.

Mollie,
Most Southern Caribbean cruise leave out of San Juan, so you dont really get teens from Florida who can easily just drive up to the port. You do get other families who are from Northern states who are already paying for airfair, so they most likely go out of San Juan or Miami.

hi. i've been on both destiny and triumph/ i went on destiny about 4 yrs ago and triuph this summer. when i went on triumph i was thinkin this looks just like the last cruise i was on lol. later on i found out they both have the same body styles. so don't pick one ova the other for the ship, pick it for the ports. when i went to destiny it left new york and went to canada. when i went on triumph it left miami and went to st thomas st maarten and san juan. this summer i'm goin on carnival destiny but it leaves from san juan and goes to aruba barbados st thomas martinique and i think thats it lol. on those carnival ships theres a "teen club" like up to 15 i think. when i went on destiny 4 yrs ago i went wit my best friend and we went the 1st nite just to see how it is. they had like movies and sum activities, but we jus liked hangin out around the ship more. they dont hav a separate teen disco room. up to about 10 45 is when teens up to 18 r allowed in. then they make every1 leave. and like 15 minutes later "adult disco" begins. u hav to be 16 to get in. they security guard has a list at the door wit every1s bdays so u cant lie. the only way u can get in is if u look older and just blend ur way in and dont try to go in rite at 11 cuz thats when they kno kids just came out. the disco is realy nice tho. it has seats and couches and tables, a bar. its like a lounge area and then a few stairs down onto dance floor. all around the walls r tvs. u can even walk ova to dj booth and request music style change or songs (doesnt allways work lol) sumtimes it does tho. both ships hav same stuff really. they hav stuff to do during day even. game shows and otha funy stuff. every nite theres a diff show. they hav a talent show too and later at nite they hav adult comedy. they say u hav to be 18 but no1 ever checks. the only place u cant go realy is the casino. hope this helped. if u hav any more questions, just ask. =)
*justine*
