Excerpts from Carnival's Website about Carnival Destiny

She's our very first Destiny-class ship and is one of the largest, most popular ships in the "Fun Ship" fleet. And starting April 2002, you'll be able to experience a brand new, innovative itinerary from San Juan aboard the spectacular CARNIVAL DESTINY. Enjoy four tropical Caribbean islands in seven days. Send friends a postcard from either Aruba, Barbados, Martinique or St. Thomas. They'll wish they were there!
