  1. THey did this on the Lido Deck of the Sunshine in 2017!
  2. Inside on the Horizon in March!
  3. We booked our own, in Cozumel, when we got off the ship with a vendor outside the port area. We were looking for a Jeep/dune buggy tour. We started talking to a very nice, non-pushy gentleman from Wild Tours. We did a dune buggy tour, stopped at their compound (saw rescued animals, held parrots, owls, etc, saw a white gator; saw some Mayan Ruins, etc), we stopped at a real beach bar for lunch on the beach, and then toured the whole island, at least the part that is accessible to the public. It was great! One of the most fun excursion that we have ever done on a cruise. In Grand Caymen we took a taxi to 7-mile island, and spent a beautiful day at the beach!!
  4. The Parades are Family friendly. Don't go down into the French Quarter! During Carnival season, anything goes! It is not family friendly!! We stayed at the Drury Inn, 3 blocks from the FQ. Go to the French Market, that's where you get the Beingets. If you don't want to wait in the long lines, get some powder sugar donuts, same thing!! Go to Jackson Square, you can't go into the Cathedral during Carnival, but it is beautiful. The streetcars do not run during Carnival season!! But we took the Pedi-cabs and Ubers everywhere!!! Go to a cemetary!! If you like seafood, it is wonderful here!!! Landry's Seafood is great, and reasonable. Also, Deanies Seafood is fantastic! We have been for 8 days during Carnival thru Mardi Gras, and then last year without Mardi Gras. Different town altogether! The Garden District is very pretty. Enjoy, I can't wait to go to Mardi Gras again!!!
  5. Swartz is awesome! I don't think he ever sleeps and he has a caffeine IV going!!! Full of energy and so fun!!! You will love him! Plus, he's cute!!!
  6. We were on the Horizon the end of March (Spring Break). It was great!!! Yes, the Pools and lounges were usually full, this is no different than any other ship that I have been on! The pools are small on every ship, and there are never enough loungers for all of the chair hogs and others! Yes, the theater is tricky, but if you get there early, no problems!! The food was good, not great, but good! And lots of choices, so if you didn't like the food, get something else!! The elevators were fine, once you learned to use them correctly. It is just frustrating because everyone doesn't use them correctly! The atrium was different, not bad, different! We absolutely loved the different designs in the big funnels. This ship was great!!
  7. Absolutely! When you get to the Dining Room and they check you in to take you to your table, just tell them the servers you want! Easy Peasy!
  8. We checked in and then went straight to the Dining Room and went to our table!
  9. It's great for checking in for ATD! And on the Horizon last month, it worked great!
  10. We took this same cruise last month, it was wonderful!! The ship was fantastic, the shows were great, food was Carnival, we had a blast!!! These ports were so much fun and we really enjoyed this cruise! We have no negative things to say, the elevators were something to get used to, but we did!!!! One of the best things on this ship was the funnels at the 2 bars. They were fascinating, and always changing!! We didn't wait in any lines for a long time. Reported for embarkation and was on the ship within 15 minutes, very smooth!!!
  11. We took this same cruise last month, it was wonderful!! The ship was fantastic, the shows were great, food was Carnival, we had a blast!!!

  12. Just got off the Horizon 2 weeks ago, and my husband drank Bud Light the whole time!!
  13. I just got back from the Eastern Caribbean, All of the ports were great! St. Kitts was beautiful and watching the planes on Maho Beach was a sight to see!! 2 years ago we went to Aruba & Grand Turk, loved both of these!!! Grand Turk is great, we didn't mind going back!
  14. We sailed on March 23-March 30, Our suitcases were in our room around 4:00, after the Muster Drill.
