Carnival Destiny Cruise

Sunday, September 17, 2000
Caribbean carnival cruise is Las Vegas on the high seas.

The Carnival fleet all follow the same design theme – loud, bright and flashy – and all offer a huge array of onboard facilities. Eight of its megavessels depart from ports in Florida or the Caribbean, including Miami, Tampa and San Juan; and four of them specialise in seven-day tours that feature stopovers in the US Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe, Grenada, Grand Cayman and Jamaica.

Most cruises offer good value, run from three to seven nights and feature non-stop activities and lots of glitter. The overall atmosphere is comparable to a floating theme park, with ship names like Ecstasy, Elation and Sensation: you get the idea.

Carnival is not a cruise line that will appeal to everyone — anyone who loved the opulence of a Sea Goddess cruise or who thinks the old Royal Viking ships were the height of cruise travel, better steer clear of Carnival. But for those who want an entertainment-packed cruise, visiting fun destinations on a flashy ship, Carnival is the cruise of choice for you. A good choice for first-time cruisers, family and younger people, it offers extremely good value for money and, for the overall experience, simply can’t be beaten.
