Have recently done the Canaries trip on Destiny. Cabins are quite small but are adequate, as you will spend little time in them as there is much to do. The ship does have stabilisers but it can still move about a bit when it is rough.Dont worry you will have a great time.

Destiny cabins all very small and very limited draw space and one bed folded away during day. She has no stabilisation and is very unstable,even in calmer conditions- dancing becomes very interesting.

The cabins are small compared to some ships and space is limited - although your suitcases can easily be stored away under the beds. We have been on the Destiny on the Canaries twice now and have found it to be extremely well organised and we have never had any problems with the stabilty of the ship.

On discussing ridiculously small size of deck 3 outside cabins and their lack of storage space with "front office manager(ess)", we were told that all cabins up to deck 6(incl) are identical. We were also told that, in her view, the increased public space compensates for this !! Yes the ship does have stabilisers - isn't this in the Brochure?

You will enjoy the Destiny immensely...the crew are fantastic,especially in the seven seas restaurant, it was a pleasure to eat there each evening, entertainment was excellent too...our cabin stewardess was a gem..the cabins are small enough but we had no problem sorting ourselves out in it, anyway too much going on about the ship to spend long periods in it... at times the ship was a little rocky but it wasnt a problem for us...but it does have stabilisers...it was our first time to cruise and throughly enjoyed our time on the Destiny.. have a great cruise !!

Having cruised over xmas/new year on Destiny, all cabins but de lux much the same , tired, cramped , shoddy paintwork,well worn bedding,noisy ineffective air con , spreads infections well, take anti bios you,ll need them.Destiny compares unfavourably with more modern liners. the only saving grace being the excellent staff that service these cabins the ship I was informed had stabilizers , however tends to roll badly at low speeds, enjoy.

Mansion before our Wedding.

By Steve Fuller

I got married recently and if you read my previous blog youll see it was in Florida. I wanted to share some photos of the villa we stayed in. It was more of a mansion to be fair. Twelve bedrooms and 15 bathrooms it was well equipped to look after the 20 of us who stayed there.To start the holiday off we flew business class with Virgin Atlantic. I know 20 people in one place sounds like a lot but the size of this place was enough to provide everyone with their own space and you never felt like...

Breakfast with the People of the Forest

By Isabelle Larder

Isabelle Larder's blog

Breakfast with the people of the forest…it sounds conspicuous, but it is something I had the pleasure of experiencing recently whilst in Singapore.You may be familiar with the word Orangutan, but did you know it is a word derived from the Malay and Indonesian language? Orang means person and hutan means forest or jungle = People of the Forest which makes sense as the Orangutan species are the closest living relatives to humans. 97% alike in our genetics various case studies have found.A...
