  1. Hey everybody! We are sailing in 2 weeks on the Horizon on the 8 day southern Caribbean cruise! We were wondering if anybody knew if they were doing the white party or the 80s party! Would love to actually be prepared with outfits this cruise! Thanks in advance!
  2. My family and I just returned from an amazing trip on the August 10th sailing of the Horizon. We sailed to La Romana, Grand Turk, Curacao and Aruba. This was our 3rd time doing this itinerary but we still found something new to enjoy. The reviews for the Horizon in the months leading up to this trip were not very positive with many complaints about overcrowding and poor food quality. We did not experience any of this. Our only small issue was temperature. Our cabin (Spa cabin 12218) was very warm but I was prepared with 2 small fans which helped circulate the air in our cabin. We had faster to the fun and arrived at the port around noon. Check in was fast and we were in our room within 15 minutes. The longest part was walking up the gangway, it felt like it went on forever. This was our first spa cabin and while we didn’t really use the spa facilities we though the cabin seemed bigger than the regular balcony cabins. We also loved the location. We had the 1st cabin nearest the door to deck 12 waterworks. Our hallway was empty except for people staying in one of the cabins near us. During the day you could hear banging from kids running around outside but with the exception of 1 night it was quiet. We did not eat any of our meals at the Lido buffet, so I can’t comment on that. We had reservations for the steakhouse 2 nights and we were never disappointed. I had risotto and lobster both nights while my son and husband got the filet mignion. For appetizer my husband had the lobster bisque which he said was good and the bone marrow which he thought was outstanding. We also had JiJi’s 2 nights and as always the food was good and way more than we could eat. The other nights we ate in the main dining room. We had YTD and used the Hub app to make our reservations. No matter what time we ate a table was ready before we could even walk there from our cabin. No complaints on the food or service. For our first stop La Romona in the Dominican Republic we did a Carnival excursion Catalina Island Beach Break. With all of the trouble in the DR lately we thought it best to stick with a Carnival excursion and we brought a cooler with us filled with water. I filled 2 zip lock bags with ice and that kept our drinks cold during the day. We had use of free chairs and an umbrella and the beach was very clean with crystal clear water. There were the usually vendors selling shirts and other souvenirs but they weren’t pushy. In Grand Turk we did the Carnival excursion Underwater Power Scooter, Beach Break and Lunch. We did this last year and had so much fun we decided to do it again this year. While it was still fun we just didn’t enjoy it as much, maybe the novelty of the power scooter wore off. Next year we will try something new but if you haven’t done the power scooters I highly recommend you give them a try. Up next was Curacao. This is our favorite stop and the 3rd time we are visiting here. Since we knew what we wanted to do here we rented a car from Advance Carrental for $75 which included all insurance, unlimited mileage, GPS and a phone if we got lost or wanted to return the car early. We picked up our car right outside the port gate and set off for our favorite beach Playa Jeremi. This is small local beach with no amenities but some of the clearest water with great snorkeling and no crowds. We spent a few hours in the water before deciding to head back to the ship. On our way back we decided to stop and check out another beach Playa Porto Mari. This beach had chairs, umbrellas and a restaurant with food and drinks but the best part was the wild pigs that wandered the beach. Since I can’t resist the change to pet some pigs we stopped here for another hour before finally getting back on board the ship at 7:30. After such an active day we decided to spend a relaxing day at the beach in Aruba. We took a taxi to Palm Beach this year after visiting Eagle Beach the last 2 times. It was nice but I think we will stick with Eagle beach just because it is closer to the ship. We rented 3 chairs and a small umbrella for $55 dollars and set up to relax. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there and since we were still tired from the last 3 days of activity we decided to just head back to the ship and relax there. We spent our last 2 days relaxing on deck 11 overlooking the main pool. Overall, the Horizon was our favorite ship.
  3. So, I'll be on the Horizon on Sept 7. I'm going solo. I was looking at pics of the Steakhouse and noticed they have a bar with stools. May I eat at the bar in the steakhouse?
  4. Does any one know the smoking areas other than the Casino & balcony's Thanks
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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. 🙂

  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. I believe I know the answer, but thought I would ask. Is it the "higher" the deck the price goes up? Is the room more costly if it is in the middle of the ship, instead at either end of the ship?
  16. Help us out! We have the Horizon booked in a Havana Cabana Suite for an 8 day cruise in Oct. 2020 ( never tried the Havana area or Horizon). Then we spied an 14 day Journeys cruise on the Pride Nov. 2020 in an OS for the same price and a really awesome itinerary for same price. We can’t do both......haha! We used to cruise on Celebrity but found for the price we can do a bigger room on Carnival and we love the fellow passengers on Carnival much more (always friendly, fun and down to earth). Help fellow cruisers! 🙏🏻
  17. I am planning on booking 4 rooms on the Carnival Horizon, which I have never been on before. If you have been on the Horizon, and booked a lower deck of 1, 2 or 3, would you tell me if it is worth booking a lower deck, other than saving money? I may be wrong, but each deck we move up, isn't the cost more? If you want to give me the pros/cons of YOUR opinion of an upper deck (inner room), compared to a lower deck, I would live to read YOUR opinion.
  18. This will seem like a strange question, and I am leaning towards the Sensation ship to take, but thought I would ask. I am needing "4" Port Hole rooms on the same side of the ship, and checking between the Sensation and Horizon. "If???" I am seeing the deck plan right, it doesn't look like there are 4 rooms next to each other on the Horizon ship, only the Sensation. If you have been on the Horizon and know of it having more than 2 Port Hole rooms on one side, please let me know.
  19. Leaving on Horizon this weekend and have some friends that booked same cruise. When we booked we reserved the late dinner seating but our friends have anytime seating. Can we occasionally join them at anytime seating dining room? They can’t get late seating with us, it’s sold out.
  20. Hi All, I have a quick question about the Carnival Horizon and their spa prices. I want to treat my parent's to a massage during our trip as a surprise and a thank you for just being all around amazing. Does anyone know the prices for a standard 30 min-1 hour massage on the Horizon? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
  21. We are trying a Carnival cruise because of an amazing itinerary but I am not familiar with their ships at all. I wanted to know how the Loft 19 works and if anyone knows the current prices? Can you book ahead of time or only once on board? Also, does anyone know if Cove Balconies can have the divider opened? Any other Horizon tips would be greatly appreciated!
  22. It's been a while since I have reserved a table at the specialty dining. Can someone tell me how long it should take to receive confirmation? I received confirmation from one restaurant right away but haven't heard from the other, and am worried my request may not have gone through. Is the FTTF option worth the money? This is new one to me, it wasn't an option on my last cruise.
  23. We just booked a cruise on Horizon and decided to do a Spa Balcony. We have done numerous balconies in the past, but 1st time on Spa balcony. However, I thought I read somewhere that it is not a covered balcony. Does anyone know if this is true and if not, how does it affect the balcony etc? Please help, looking to switching rooms.
  24. Hello everyone! First time poster here, and second time cruiser. I stumbled upon this site while trying to find things to do for my family and I during our cruise on the Horizon. Let me just say I have loved all of the info and tips you all have so diligently laid out. My parents were definitely impressed when I started listing off things for us to do and sending them lists of things that need to be arranged before we cruise. We will be cruising out of the Miami port on Sunday Sept 1 - Sept 7. Our ports are Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Just wanted to say, if anyone else is on the same cruise feel free to connect!! Or if you have any tips feel free to share as well. Thanks again and Happy Cruising!
  25. Will be on Horizon on 21st of September with a group of 8, and already booked for Steakhouse on 2nd night. Just wondering, with all the other choices of restaurants, just how popular are these restaurants and should we make reservations now? Most of the group is really undecided which day to eat in which restaurant!
