Lets get the bad bits out of the way first .
Unless you are in an inside cabin or are in one on deck 7 or higher be prepared for contortions !!
having accepted that we have been on the destiny 3 times in outside and inside cabins and lets face you only the cabin is only for changing in or for sleeping in. We would not recommend eating dinner in the open deck restaurant this is best for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea (if the latter appeals to you) .
Now the good points - The cabin staff are extremely friendly and efficient while the restaurant are simply magnificent looking after your every need as well as being entertaining.
Food at all times was more than acceptible.
We have just returned from a 14 day cruise in the Caribbean with no regrets.
Only other criticism is that Thomson landtours were over the top price-wise when we were doing the same trips by local taxi for much less ( n.b.we suggest you haggle)
If you google the name of each hotel you are considering, you will find loads of reviews of the hotel.
I realise that you are looking at the Caribbean but we did a cruise and stay January 2008 on Thomson Destiny. What fantastic value.We managed to get the all inclusive on both the ship and hotel.We did the Colourful Coasts.The hotel we stayed at for a week was in Tenerife.It was the Lagos De Cesar in Puerto de Santiago.The food was excellent .A snack bar was open by the pool where we helped ourselves .The pool bar was open all day.We did have to wear a wristband which I know some people have a problem with but we don't.Enjoyable entertainment in the lounge every evening.We travelled on the buses all over the island.
Two weeks all inclusive for £700 each.This included our flights to and from Tenerife.How can you beat that?It cost us more than that for five days in Rome last spring.
