Carnival Destiny Dining - Formal Offerings

There are 2 formal dining rooms on Carnival Destiny: the Galaxy Dining Room and the Universe Dining Room. Each "Room" welcomes cruise passengers to assigned seats during early seating (starting at 6:00 p.m.) and late seating (starting at 8:15 p.m.).

Cruise passengers may also choose "Your Time Dining" not having an assigned seat) and these are hosted in the Galaxy Dining Room from 5:45 - 9:30 p.m.

In addition to having dinner in the main dining rooms, cruise guests are invited to "open seating" breakfast and lunch in the Universe Dining Room.

Carnival Destiny Dining - Buffet Offering

It is understood that not everyone wants to be wined and dined in a formal setting - being served a 3 course meal. No problem! Carnival Destiny offers a buffet option for every meal. Your stop is the Sun and Sea Restaurant (Lido Deck 9 Aft).

For each meal that is served in the formal dining room - breakfast, lunch and dinner, you have the option of eating in the Sun and Sea Restaurant.

Many cruise guests tend to eat in the buffet restaurant especially for breakfast and lunch.

Nothing beats variety and Carnival Destiny delivers just that. You have several other options for eating during the day.

Carnival Destiny Dining - Grill

There is no way that we could complete our page on meals onboard Destiny - ship sailing to the Caribbean and the Bahamas, without talking about food off the grill.

You will have your hands on and sauce all over you as you bite into hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken tenders offered on Carnival Destiny. Watch out for that chili!

Your grill is located in close proximity to one of Carnival Destiny's pools, so you may dip, then eat, and then dip again.

How cool is that?

After writing about all this food business, I am feeling hungry. Even more so, I am wanting to get back on a Carnival Destiny cruise.

Whenever you choose to sail to the Western Caribbean or the Bahamas onboard this ship, you will enjoy Carnival Destiny dining options.
