Full Review:

The Destiny although slightly dated is kept clean, the crew work continuously to keep her looking "ship shape". The cabins are small but you know this before you go, but you dont realise till you are on the ship just how hard the cabin crew work hard to keep your cabin clean, tidy your beds away and turn them down every evening. The food in the Seven Seas is up to a good standard, and the portions are not so large that you can't, if you wish, eat all 5 courses, but then again if your still hungry you can always go to the Lido where food of a good standard is served continously, as well as Tea and Coffee. The entertainment team is excellent and the shows of a very high standard and aimed at the mixed ages on the ship. The quizzes are funny and up to the individual how much you participate, even during the daytime on the pool deck you can escape the quiz by sunbathing near the front of the ship on the top deck. The excursions can be expensive, we only tried one, which was in Casablanca, as we had heard some horror stories from this port, so didn't want to chance it alone and we where very pleased that we did as our guide was very informative and the Hassan 2 Mosque is a must to see. We went out of school time with 2 teenagers and although they were kept slightly occupied there was very little for teenagers to do- under 12's are catered for in the Kids zone but those between 12 and 18 are really left to their own devices(thankfully we were off ship alot of the days) Evenings as stated before where no problem for the teenagers as they enjoyed all the shows.

Cruise Positives:
too many to mention

Cruise Negatives:
Very little for teenagers - though this may be different during school holidays
