  1. Thankfully he was fine. He’d joined the Horizon in early March and I think only did 2 cruises before they stopped running. He spent 2 weeks cruising between Miami and the Bahamas with only crew onboard and said it was actually nice. They had their temps taken each day and were all kept as safe as they could. He flew home via London as he usually does. The U.K. had gone into lockdown about a week before and it was so eerie picking him up from a completely empty Glasgow airport.
  2. Lol, thank you, glad you enjoyed the review. We’ve still only been on two cruises. We had planned on the Horizon for this summer but obviously that hasn’t happened. I’m looking forward to another cruise when circumstances change 🙂
  3. My son is on the Horizon and is leaving today - he's part of the entertainment staff. Some of his department left last week and I'm sure he said that the spa, shops and concessions staff had already left. His contract isn't finished until August. He just boarded on 1 March.
  4. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. Glad you enjoyed them. Yes, he’ll be on the Horizon from the end of February until August next year. Hopefully another trip for us to look forward to 😎
  5. Following along and enjoying your fantastic photos! Looks like a great time so far :)
  6. Thanks so much, hope you had a great cruise despite the change to itinerary. We’ve really missed him recently but not long to wait now, he’ll be home next week 😁
  7. Yes, he will still be there 😀 They sign off before the move back to Norfolk, I think 13/14 October.
  8. Thanks so much! Glad to hear you enjoyed it. I’ll pass on your kind comments 😊 Thank you, happy to hear you enjoyed it. I’ll pass on your kind comments 😊 Thanks for reading along, glad you enjoyed it. The Eric Clapton guitar turned out to be at the exhibition we went to at The Met on our last day. 😀
  9. Current shows are Soulbound, Vintage Pop and Latin Nights. The Hipstars are the band, they play with the Have Mercy Horns in the Red Frog Pub. They’re fantastic 😀 Piano bar beside Red Frog Pub. Violin trio in the lobby and solo guitar/singer there too. Lots going on 🙂
  10. If you download the carnival app you can reserve a table for your time dining without needing to go to deck 5 first. Worked very well when we used it.
  11. Yes, you use your sail and sign card to operate the laundry. Instructions are very straightforward - think there might be a youtube video about it too.
  12. Thank you for your kind comments, glad you enjoyed reading along
  13. I get what you’re saying. And there are lots of very valid negative reviews. I think what the OP means is that it might be nice to have a thread with some positive reviews too. I’m sure there are lots of people who have booked the ship and may be feeling less than excited about it if all they see is the negative side. We experienced some negatives too but we still had a fantastic time 👍
  14. Aww, that is so nice of you. Just pop in to see the band play in the Red Frog Pub, have a wee dance and give them a cheer if you like them 😁 Hope you have a great time 👍
