|World's largest ship until 1998. She was also the first passenger ship to be built over 100,000 gross tons. A second sister ship, the Carnival Triumph, was launched with one additional deck in 1999. A third and final sister ship, the Carnival Victory, was launched in 2000. The Carnival Triumph and Carnival Victory are slightly different from the Destiny. However all three are called Destiny class.|
Destiny will undergoes a $155mil. transformation in early 2013 that will involve
both outer decks and indoor spaces on board the ship. The dry docking
itself is scheduled to take over a month. The Lido deck is to be
completely refurbished and as part of this the magrodome in the stern of
the vessel will be removed. All staterooms will be fully revamped with a
new tropical décor that combines bright colors and pastels. The 182 new
staterooms will span a range of categories, from interior to balconies,
including the 96 new spa staterooms After the 49-day drydock at
Fincantieri is completed, the ship will be renamed Carnival Sunshine.
The work is scheduled from February to April. A water slide that shoots
out over the edge of the ship, a zipline, a milkshake bar and a 24-hour
pizzeria are some features of the upcoming $155m transformation of
Carnival Destiny into Carnival Sunshine.
June 02-2013 More Trouble for Carnival's
|Oct,2018 Carnival Cruise Line officials say a fin
stabilizer is to blame for one of its ships tilting several hours after
leaving Port Canaveral on Sunday evening. Guests told News 6 they had
never experienced this kind of listing, which means to tilt or lean,
while on a cruise ship. "I didn't think anything of it, since it's not
uncommon for ships to rock back and forth. But it didn't rock back. It
kept leaning," David Crews, of Long Island, said in a message to News 6.
"Plates and silverware started sliding off the tables. Then the tables
themselves started to slide. Glasses and plates started to fall and
shatter. At this point, it was pure chaos. Screams. Cries. Panic." After
leveling back to normal, the ship continued its weeklong Caribbean
cruise. Pictures show some guests carrying around life jackets for the
remainder of the night for safety.
