  1. I’ve sailed on almost all of Carnival’s fleet, and I do not like the Vista class ships. Would not sail again on that class if you paid me. Horizon is very similar to Vista so here’s what I didn’t like: 1. Due to the IMAX (who uses that anyway?) in the middle of the ship, there is no grand atrium in the lobby with the typical glass elevators - this makes it feel very small and closed in and crowded. 2. No nightclub which means that the theater “converts” to a nightclub, which means all the theater seating is REMOVABLE- this means there are no tables to set drinks during the shows which means people SPILL drinks during shows by accidentally kicking them over. Also not as much seating as a typical carnival theater and it also sucks as a nightclub cause it’s too “open” and the music echos. 3. Lido deck is crowded ALL THE TIME. Bad layout - not enough chairs 4. Whole ship feels “cramped” and passenger flow doesn’t make sense. ive sailed on almost all of the Carnival ships and the Vista is BY FAR the worst I’ve been on. My favorites are the Magic and the Pride. I will also say that I’ve sailed on Royals Harmony of the Sea last year, which has 6,000 passengers and I never felt “crowded” at all and couldn’t believe that many ppl were on board .... but we were at capacity. So it’s NOT the number of passengers on the Vista .... it’s the poor design of the ship.
  2. I’ll be on the Magic in a couple weeks on January 27th!! Can’t wait!!! How was the cruise director??
  3. I’ve used premium on Carnival on the Pride, Conquest, and the Magic. While it’s not as fast as my Verizon LTE at home .... it’s not bad for the sea. Once you go premium you’ll never go back.
  4. Hi - I’m wondering if there will be taxis when we get off the ship willing to take us to mountain top ... then just drop us off downtown for some shopping? I really don’t want to get stuck taking a several hour “tour” - they can get boring. But I’d like to see mountain top and do shopping - is this possible and also any idea the cost? Haven’t been to St Thomas in over 10 years .... thanks!!!
  5. Hello! Will be in Grand Turk in Feb 2019 (like 74 days!) and want to rent ATV's - Just wondering, with all the hurricanes last year ... what company still rents ATV's? A couple years ago I rented from Omar, but there's some bad reviews online that said he went out of business? Not sure if anyone has rented from Omar/GrandTurkAdventures recently? What about Max KART? Any "new" place I don't know of that rents ATV's (NOT golf carts). Any recent experience renting them is appreciated. I don't want to go on a "tour" --- I want to explore on my own. Thanks!
  6. Just did online check in for my September cruise —- earliest time available is 12:00-12:30 - are they sticklers about the time?? I’d like to get there around 11 ... will they prevent us from entering the port early and make us wait till noon??? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I am thinking of avoiding the buffet once we board and heading to Chopps. Do I really need to RESERVE that ahead of time? I would rather just wait cause I don’t know how the day will go - will they be full for lunch day 1??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hi! I will be on a carnival cruise in a few weeks. It's been 10 years since I cruised Carnival. I see now they have "casino rates" and promos now (Smart, enticing gamblers!) --- I do like to play craps and also the slots. Just curious if anyone can give me an idea how much gambling I need to do to be included on one of those promotions? Can anyone give me an idea of how much they gambled and what kind of rates they got??? Thanks! Jeff aka Recovery Dude
