  1. What time do they start letting you get off the ship on last day. Walking off with all luggage.
  2. Any good? Is it faster/better on the new ships?
  3. Currently on the Carnival Horizon. Have been on 9 Carnival cruises but first on the Vista class. Let me know any questions anyone has and I will try to answer as best as possible!
  4. We will be going on the Horizon on 11/2/2019 Found a great deal on a local tour for my family of eight but it may be a time crunch depending on debarkation. Debarkation in Aruba starts at 8:00 a.m. The tour leaves at 9:00 a.m. and is located about 15 min by taxi from the port. I was hoping someone who has sailed on the Horizon could advise me on how long it took to get off the ship in Aruba? This being such a new and large ship I have concerns over if we'd be able to make our tour on time. Thanks!
  5. Hello, I am considering a cruise on the Carnival Panorama for January 2020. I am interested in getting a Cloud 9 Spa stateroom, as I enjoyed the one I had on the Splendor in November 2015. Can anyone tell me what the facilities are onboard the Panorama? I'm aware of the in-room products, but am I wrong in interpreting that the Panorama and Horizon do not offer the thlassotherapy pools like the Splendor did? If the new class does not offer them, what are the amenities of the Cloud 9 staterooms aside from the in-room products and spa/gym treatment discounts? Thanks so much in advance!
  6. I've been trying to find photos of Cabin #2207. I'm looking at booking #2211 or 2207. It looks like 2207 is possibly a larger cabin (?). Thanks for any input you may have.
  7. Hi everyone The 8 day cruise going to Aruba. Will the ship be on port side when docked? Thanks. Going in Sept.
  8. Does Bonsai sushi have take out? I'm the only person that likes sushi so if not guess I'll miss out. How about Cucino de Capitano . Is that open for lunch? What are the prices for lunch/dinner? TIA
  9. For those that have sailed on the Horizon already, how would you rate the beds on comfort? We sailed on RC ship last year and the beds were literally like sleeping on plywood 🙁
  10. Just off the Horizon this morning. Longest debarcation ever. We are platinum so we could have had priority debarcation. We originally had luggage tag 3 but in our past cruises that was usually around 7:30–8:00 and we didn’t need to be off that early. Yesterday we told guest services that we wanted off around 8:30 so they said we should take number 6. Well, this morning number six wasn’t called until 9:45😬. No explanation except too many people going to deck three before being called. There should be a system where passengers have to show their zone number before getting in line to debark. We got in line when numbers 6-10 were called. When we got in the terminal we saw people gathering luggage with zone 20 on their suitcases. Messed up.
  11. Hi everyone. We are loyal Princess cruisers (6 cruises) but are going to give carnival a try in August of 2020 for a 8 day cruise since Princess is not doing caribbean cruises in august that year. We have narrowed it down to either the Magic or Horizon. We are upper 40's and our kids will be 17 and 13 at the time of the cruise. The Magic stops at bonaire, aruba, turks and caicos and half moon cay. Horizon stops at bonaire, aruba, and curacau. We have been to aruba, bonaire, and curacau before and it was our favorite cruise with princess. Any help deciding would be appreciated. I will have many more questions over the coming months since we dont know alot about how carnival does things compared to princess. Thanks for your help.
  12. I will be in an OC cabin. In the past I’ve had to ask maintenance to turn down AC because they only went down to 72. I like it colder. Any feed back?
  13. I will be on the Horizon during May and was wondering if I can stream HBO since I am a huge Game of Thrones fan. I have already purchased the premium internet plan so hopefully that will help. I plan on streaming thru my provider Spectrum. TIA
  14. Could anyone confirm or deny that you can stream youtube, hulu, netflix, etc. using the wifi on the carnival horizon with the new internet setup? Thanks!
  15. Spring Break on the Horizon A few pics:
  16. The last few days I've been scouring the internet for all things Carnival as I am in the midst of planning our honeymoon. I was pretty sold on Carnival Breeze but Carnival Horizon is longer with an extra stop. I'd love to hear everyone's input on either ship or any of the stops listed. Carnival Breeze (6 days) Out of Fort Lauderdale November 1 2020 Nassau, Amber Cove and Grand Turk Cloud 9 Spa Balcony OR Carnival Horizon (8 days) Out of Miami October 31 2020 Aruba Curacao La Romana Amber Cove Cloud 9 Spa Oceanview
  17. We just got back from our 8 day eastern on the Horizon. March 23-31st. Just wanted to give some thoughts on this cruise and the good and bad from our experiences. We have been on 10 Carnival cruises..starting in 2009 on the Fascination, then the Dream a few times, the Freedom, the Splendor, the Breeze 3x, the Legend and now the Horizon. We chose the Horizon because of a Premier cruise offer and the fact that it was the newest ship. We flew in the day before and stayed at the Embassy suites in Miami. We fly Southwest so we always fly in and out of Ft Lauderdale. We usually stay at the Embassy suites due to the free great buffet for breakfast and the free cocktail hour (2 hr) everynight. We were not thrilled with this Embassy Suites at all. Its not near any stores and the hotel area is very run down..the pool was not as nice as others with Embassy suites. I love the Ft Lauderdale location and it is right near so many stores and restaurants. The pool area is beautiful also. Lesson learned...always stay at the Ft Lauderdale location--whether we are sailing from Miami or Ft Lauderdale. We got to the Horizon at 11:45am--earlier than we like, but the latest shuttle was leaving around 11:15am from the hotel, so we took it. I was amazed at how well the embarkation was on this ship. We are platinum and were on the Premier casino cruise, we walked up, they took our picture before we even scanned our luggage, then walked right on the ship. Literally less than 5 minutes from shuttle drop off to walking on board. That was amazing!! We went right up to our room 11274..our keys were on our mailbox and we went in. Very nice balcony room. We were just 4 doors off the 11th floor doors to the lido deck area. WE LOVED THAT. The convenience of that was unbelievable. Skipping all the details of our cruise...these are the things we loved and things we didn't love... LOVED Room location and size of the room/closets Guys Burgers Our CD Schwartz Movies on the LIDO deck every night The flow of the new buffet set up (didn't think I would, but it really works -never a line) Gerry, one of the entertainment staff that ran the trivia games....funny guy and great to talk to The Italian restaurant and the Pizza place Sitting on our balcony and having the privacy, but still able to hear from the LIDO what was happening there. The comedy club The Dr suess waterpark area The gifts from the premiere players cruise that came every day to the cabin (like Christmas every day) LOL The parties were great--Lido dance parties. 80s parties, white party etc. DIDNT LOVE The MDR--our waiter was non existent and neither was any bar service...worst MDR we have ever had--didn't go back after day 2 The elevators--HATE the new system. I have never had to wait so long for any elevator on any ship. The Atrium. There are no glass elevators, and the space seems smaller. There is a ceiling after the 3rd level of the atrium. We have always loved sitting there and watching the musical performers and the glass elevators. It is not that elegant space anymore. The Theater....very small compared to the other ships and the seating in the main floor middle area is just chairs..not booths. The casino...there was no non smoking separate area like other carnival ships...it was smaller overall and the bar is just a round bar in the middle of the casino...no extra chairs and tables. The hot tubs. There were only 2 for the general passengers--in the Tides pool area. For a ship of 4700-4900 that's crazy...it was so overcrowed, people were standing in the middle of it while the others were sitting. It was like a giant soup bowl of people :) On the other ships we have been on, there are at least 4 whirlpools for the general cruisers. I like the ones that hang over the sides on Deck 5 of the Dream class ships. The size of the Lido pool area is the same as the size of smaller ships. So you have even less chairs to choose from. My mom was up at 6am every day and she said all the chairs were already taken by towels by then. She said it has never been this bad on our other cruises. The stores are very small...way smaller than any other carnival ship. One more thing I didn't care for...and maybe this has been like this on other cruises, but I hadn't noticed....the activities on the funtimes seem to be geared towards selling you things, services, products now..instead of entertaining you. Lots of ...how to tone your skin..flatten your stomach...end puffy eyes...shopping for the best jewelry etc. Not a deal breaker, but just seemed odd that so many of the activities were geared towards the shops and spa services. Overall we had a great time, but definitely would not book the Horizon or similar style (no glass elevators, small theater etc). If they go back to making those spaces larger on a newer ship, we will try, but for now...we will stick to the Breeze, Magic etc.
  18. Does anyone know if the buffets lunch and dinner have seafood on them at all?
  19. Does anyone have experience staying at this hotel before a cruise? It looks like a decent hotel in a good location, and the price is hard to beat for the area. Comments?
  20. I will be on the Horizon in a Havana Cabana in May. I have seen pictures of a breakfast buffet in the Ocean Plaza on deck 5 and since this is close to my room I was wondering if this is served daily and is it included or an extra charge? Would like to get breakfast close by instead of the Lido deck. Thanks
  21. You think your stateroom attendant could add another? I'm not sure how only one lounger is gonna work when there are two people in the suite. ALSO...it's been a few years since I've cruised with Carnival. Are there any hot breakfast items such as omelets, eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc available for morning room service? I've kinda gotten used to this while aboard Royal, Celebrity, and HA. THANKS!
  22. Thinking of booking the Horizon and getting an inside cabin in the Havana area. Most of the cabins are on deck 5 but there are a couple on deck 6 and 7. What deck would you recommend if you had a choice?
  23. We sailed on the Carnival Horizon for back-to-back loops in November 2018, an 8-day Eastern itinerary into a 6-day Western itinerary. Here's the ship tour we put together while on the adventure, in addition to the full set of day-by-day cruise vlogs on our ParoDeeJay channel. Hope you enjoy!! 😄 ~Jay, ParoDeeJay Content Creator
  24. How crowded does the lounge get during the sail away and through out the cruise, can all aboard use it, and finally, how noisy is it at night?
  25. Carnival is having a pretty nice sail now. I just saved $250/pp on my Horizon sailing October 2020. I lost the $50 obc so saved $200. It was still worth it for me. Just an FYI. The price reduction form was not as easy to find on the Carnival site anymore, so I googled it and it came right up. It was approved within a few hours.
