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.

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

Airshow takes over Weston

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
