  1. I know there are several Pay restaurants on the Horizon ship. Did I read that there are only "two", one for MDR, and one for My Time Dining restaurants on this ship? The reason I ask, I have been on several ships where they had pay restaurants, as well as the My Time Dining, but always had two MDR's too.
  2. I know Carnival Horizon is a large ship, and we plan to take it in March. Since it is a large ship, is there any deck outside that will go through from one end to the other? If there is no deck outside, how about deck inside the ship going from one end to the other? As you can guess, I like to walk! We will be on deck 6, room 6205 at the end of the ship, which is an obstructed window. If you have been in that room (there is a video out on it, and I liked what I saw), I believe it has the deck right next to it. My question, if we open the curtain to look out, I know we can see out, but can people see us in our room as well? I believe someone mentioned about a secret deck on the Horizon. Which deck is it? Yes, I know once you let me know, it won't be a secret anymore. 🙂

  4. Here is a link to the story. First it was the Vista and now the Horizon has the same issues. https://www.cruisehive.com/second-vista-class-carnival-cruise-ship-closes-skyride-feature/33490
  5. Horizon uses the aft MDR for breakfast and sea day brunch.
  6. So I just got off the Miracle and I've never been more satisfied with a Carnival cruise. After my cruise on the Breeze in May I was pretty sure I was done with Carnival, but as long as they keep a Spirit class ship in Tampa I'll keep sailing on those at least. Compared to the Breeze: -The ship was way, way less crowded. Never had trouble finding a lounger, never waited in long lines, and didn't even have to arrive too early for the comedy club. -The Serenity is the best in the fleet and a great use of the aft pool area -There's so much more open deck space per person than on the Breeze -The service was much friendlier and faster, with more staff per passenger -There weren't sales pitches for the fun shops, casino, spa, etc every 5 minutes like on the breeze -I think Frankie is a better CD than Schwartz -Getting on and off in the ports is a lot faster since there's less people overall on the ship I just wanted to share my experience since I've seen a lot of the same complaints that I had about the Breeze on the other newer/refurb ships like the Horizon, Sunrise, etc
  7. Had done a few cruises in Balconies mid ship, then went to an aft balcony. Peeked around the divider one cruise as we were next to an aft wrap and I was like a kid in a candy store. WOW. Our last 2 cruises were aft wraps, and our next 3 are as well. I won't book a cruise if not available now. Spoiled. Also will only do 8 days. We did the Vista Aft Wrap Havana and loved the Havana area. Have 2 booked for the Horizon next year Havana aft wrap. You will love the Havana Area. We have one on the Sunrise in a few weeks as well. Always wanted to Cruise from New York City on the Hudson. After the Sunrise more then likely we will just Cruise the Havana Area for all future cruises. In an Aft Wrap 🙂 Views are great. See where you are going and where you have been. Part of the cruise we love, is sitting on the AFT wrap sailing away from an Island we were just at watching it go off in the distance, Or you can watch it from one of the The Havava Hot Tubs
  8. What dining room on the horizon is your time dining? also, I’ve read that you can now check in via the app. If you check in for 2 on the app, does that mean a table for two or do you need to go to hostess table to request table for two? thanks
  9. I can't remember if you've said you've sailed Carnival before, or if it was always other lines. Carnival doesn't have a separate MDR for Your Time Dining. You'll be in one of the two on Horizon. The MDR you're assigned to will be printed on your S&S card. And one of them will be used for sea day brunches as well. I'm not sure which one because we haven't been on Horizon yet, but your Fun Times will tell you which one sea day brunch is in.
  10. I'm baaaaaaaaack 🙂 ((Not from my cruise. I got back from my cruise months ago. But I'm back on CC! Hi friends!!!!!)) If we haven't crossed paths on this board or...onboard...HI! I'm Nicole. I live in Chicago. And I love cruises. They're my absolute favorite way to travel and see the world. I don't even know if I could put into words why. But every year since my freshman year of college, my family and I have taken at least one cruise (sometimes two...or three!). And even though my sister (Stephanie) and I are all grown up, we still try to cruise with our Mom every year. It's kind of our family tradition. And I've been posting reviews on here for nearly that entire time (holy cow -- I've been posting reviews here for, like, fourteen years ). See, I went to college to be a writer. And then I got a fancy journalism degree...and promptly went in to a career in digital marketing and merchandising and did nothing with it. So writing these reviews fills that piece of me that needs some creative outlet. And they serve as a pay-it-forward for all of the reviews I read before we visit new places or cruise on new ships. Obligatory family photo of us on the Vista a couple of years ago: So if you haven't read one of my reviews before, let me lay it out for you: these are long. Really long. And they have a ton of pictures. I've been writing this particular review and posting it on my blog for the past six months or so. I wasn't sure if I was going to cross-post it over here because the Horizon isn't in Europe anymore, but then Carnival announced new Europe and Mediterranean itineraries for its new ship and I figured some of you might it useful. Or, at least, I hope some of you find it entertaining! I write these in journal form because that's mostly what they are: my cruise journal (which also lets me re-live my trips when I share them with all of you!). And if you're not into long reviews but you're seeking Horizon and/or Mediterranean cruising info, I have the Carnival Horizon menus posted here, the 13-day Fun Times posted here and a ship walk through here. But I do hope some of you will follow along because talking about cruising is so much of the fun in writing these, and if you are following along, drop me a note below and let me know! And with that...let's go back onto the Horizon!
  11. Since this is the first time for 8 of us to be on this ship, I am STILL trying to get answers for everyone else with me. If you have been on the Horizon, I would appreciate an answer to some of my questions, if you have one. How do they determine which of the MDR restaurants you eat at? It looks like they are on both decks 3 & 4? My room is at the very front (6205) of the ship, and the other 6 people are in the middle of the ship on deck 6. I just wondered if where the rooms are located would have reference to which restaurant ((Forward or Aft) we would be at? We have an Ocean view room, but has a small table. "If I ask, do you think they would have a chair to replace the small table in that area, as it looks like there is plenty of room? Is deck 3 the deck we get in/off the ship? I pretty much know how to use the elevators that everyone is complaining about, but I have a question. Once we put in the number of people that are wanting to go to a certain deck, are the elevators line up in (it would help if someone had a picture of the letters over the elevators, or how we would know/see which elevator to go to, after it shows on the panel we punch the number of people in) A, B, C order or what? Just trying to find out "ahead" of time an easy way to learn. 🙂 Is there only 1 deck with the Fun Shops, or 2, and what deck/s are they on?
  12. There are two main dining rooms on the Horizon, the Reflection (Midship) and Meridian (Aft) dining rooms. However, there are two levels in each restaurant, which depending on your sailing, will be used for Your Time Dining. On my sailing, I had late dining (8:15) and ate in the Meridian restaurant.
  13. We were on a cruise on Horizon when it was being piloted. We were down in Havana area and ordered on......for the two attendants (for their hard work keeping us imbibing on a regular basis in the Havana pool. I assumed it was from Lido. You sound pretty sure, can you describe why you feel so?
  14. I do not know who told you 15 year life and how old this data was, but I can tell you ALL the major cruise lines have ships over that old and Carnival, Royal NCL and (your own cruise line HAL) have about half of their fleet being over 15 years old. How many extra people do you think they were “stuffing” in the retrofits (which again all cruise lines are doing not just Carnival)? Carnival has come out with new ships as well as revitalize 3 of their ships with major makeovers (Sunshine, Sunrise, Radiance). Carnival has launched new builds in 2016 Vista, 2018 Horizon, and soon to come out Panorama 2019 and a totally new class of ship Mardi Gras (the first cruise ship to run on LNG) in 2020 and an unnamed sister ship in 2022. Just wanted to give you facts on your comment about just choosing relaunches....
  15. So I sailed on the Vista last Oct and just booked the Horizon for Feb. For those that have sailed both, what things did you find different on each one. Anything you like more on one vs the other? We enjoyed the Vista but definitely looking forward to the Horizon.
  16. I can't tell you which dining room on the Horizon but I can tell you that when you check in for YTD on the Hub App, you have to tell it for how many (linked to their name). That will automatically define the table size you get... if you register for 2 people, you'll get a 2 top. If you want to sit with others, I'm pretty sure the only way to do that is to go to the hostess' desk at the restaurant itself. But if you're looking for a table for two, easy peasy!
  17. As others have stated, the only perks you get is a white card on your 25th cruise and 25% OBC based on your cruise fare. You don’t have to use the OBC on your 25th cruise. We used my wife’s OBC on her 27th cruise, which was an 8 day cruise on Horizon. We used my OBC on my 29th cruise, which was a 7 day cruise on Breeze.
  18. Hi all - hoping to get some insights from anyone who has been on Carnival Horizon and Norwegian Breakaway class ships. We are primarily NCL cruisers and have never been with Carnival, but Horizon has piqued our interest. We’re looking at this ship, RC Symphony or Harmony of the Seas, or Caribbean Princess. Would love to hear your opinions about how Horizon compares to NCL Escape or Breakaway, in terms of general vibe, activities, food, crowdedness, etc. Also, if you have any thoughts on how Horizon compares to the Symphony or Harmony, would love to know as well. This will be a family trip for us, our 1 year old, and our parents in their 60s-70s. Many thanks!
  19. To say the least, I believe several of us of the 8 that are going, are getting MORE excited, now that I booked the cruise today for March of next year. 🙂They were wanting to "find out" their room to see where it is located, etc. My question, for those of you who have had the Ocean view and balcony rooms, what are your pros/cons of this deck? If you want to mention anything about the two rooms I mention, that is fine also. I didn't want a balcony, as I don't spend any time there, and it is a waste of money for me. I did book 6205 at the end of the ship, and what I see, I believe I will like. It looks like we can come right out of the room and go to the deck, and then hit the stairs right next to it, to go to deck 5. I know we will have further to walk, but I'm used to walk, and the 3 balcony's are midway on the ship.
  20. Hello, I am going on a Premier cruise on Carnival in October. Has anyone been & what type of gifts did you get? Also, I am to get casino cash. Last year I just went to the casino cage and they gave me the cash. Does this still apply? Thank you!
  21. 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!
  22. Does anyone have the hours for the Spa on the Horizon? We are doing the 6 day Western Caribbean on September 15. I had purchased the couples thermal suite pass, and will either need to cancel it or change it to a single pass as my husband can no longer travel (son is taking his place thankfully). Knowing the hours would help make the decision. TIA
  23. Sort of confused by your question. Horizon has two MDRs, which is what you stated. Every Carnival ship has two MDRs, with the exception of Spirit class ships which only have one.
  24. After I contacting the Horizon Maitred again, and asking "how" they determine where people sit (this may not be in all cases) in the MDR, he said they go by the request first. So I was happy I contacted him when I did.
  25. Just wondering if anyone has had the Premier cruise on the Horizon? What did you get in your room & was it fun?
