Is the Destiny ship planning on getting the Upgrades, Evolutions of fun, etc.? I don't hear too much about this ship. Has anyone been on this ship before?

The Evolutions Of Fun upgrades are for the Fantasy-class ships only.

The Destiny went through some upgrades in September 2008. They added mini golf, the Seaside theatre, turned some outside cabins into balcony, added the Circle C, and wifi. The Destiny is a popular ship.

I sailed the Destiny 2 years ago out of San Juan. It is a beautiful ship. One of the last few to go all out on pizzaz. The stairwells are lined with Copper. Thick too, a fortune in precious metal. And the floor to the lido deck is marble. All very nice.

Has anyone been on the Destiny to Nassau and the Turks and Caicos? I am planning that cruise with my husband and two nieces (teenagers) and am looking for suggestions of what to do when we are in port. Thanks.

We were on the Destiny in April, but not to those ports, altho we have been to those ports with other lines...
When you're in Nassau, spend the day at Atlantis. There is a lot to do there....Pay for one of the excursions, because it will allow you into places that you would not be able to get into otherwise...
In the Turks, there is a nice beach/pool right at the end of the dock...we also did a tour of the island, which was pretty good...
I'm sure both ports also have snorkling, scuba, etc....

Do'nt go on the destiny!!!!! Just got back from what was supposed to be a five day western carribian cruise,the ship left four hours late with mechanical problems,on the second nite the crew informed us that they had problems with one of the engines and if they could not fix it by morning they would not be able to continue on course.Well needless to say we turned around and had a five day cruise with one port of call at nassau.NOT AT ALL HAPPY!! Now I have contacted carnival and they say per H.Q. they will not give any refunds or reimbursments.I have not given up on that yet though. ALso have found out that the same thing has happened to this same ship twice in two months late last year.

Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

Sorry to hear of your unhappy experience. I've heard of the Destiny's recent propulsion problems. I hope they get the issue fixed. If you miss a port they usually refund the port charges during the cruise by way of an on board credit. Not sure if they'll do much more than that.

Dwayne, thats all that they have given so far,I understand if you miss a port because of weather but to have a problem and know about it and not just miss a port we missed the whole damn cruise!!!!I and I'm sure the whole ship did'nt spend the money to just sit in the ocean for five days!!
