Hi Thanks for your reply I am not saying I did'nt enjoy my cruise I have been on Destany at least 6 times. I had no problem with staff or food and as usual the entertainment was great. I hope they will do is carpet where it's frayed out side the dinning room also the deck in some places is rotting.The steamer chairs have been replaced so how about the sun beds. it all needs a general update. If it went for a 3 week refit thay wasted their money.

We did the Colourful Coasts cruise departing the boat on 30th November at Tenerife. Had agreat time. We understood that the Destiny was sailing that day to Marseille for a 3 week refurbishment so she should be llooking better now.

Returned from the destiny after week cruising over xmas, very very disappointed. Glorified ferry comes to mind and "butlins on sea" very poor service from staff with a "robotic" approach and the food certainly did not meet the standads of previous cruise on Carnival miracle. As for the cabins well, so glad it was only a week. Ship definatly needs considerable improvement to get it to acceptable standard for the price of a cruise.

It's Thomson so you get what you pay for - all the ships are 'old' and are bound to be tired. Would not fancy the crossing over to the Caribbean on one (they probably fly you over) but went over on P&O Aurora, 22 nights there and back and never felt the ship move... Thats the difference!

How loyal are you to your cruise line?

By Chris Halford

These days most major cruise lines operate a loyalty system and the more you cruise with them the more benefits you get on future sailings. Probably the most well-known is the P&O Peninsular club. Benefits range from discount on board to priority booking and exclusive on board benefits. But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

During this visit, she was also treated to a lovely weekend in Bali!As I sat looking through the pictures and listening to the stories, I was amazed at how much Singapore has changed. So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
