  1. Are there drawers under the couches in the balcony rooms on the Horizon? Thanks!
  2. Hi all! I'm scheduled to sail on the Panorama Aug 21st 2021. I'm booked in ocean view room 3221. If anyone has sailed on the Horizon or the Panorama and has pictures of the view from the window that would be amazing. I want to know how much obstruction can be seen from the window. Thanks!
  3. We're looking at booking a 6 day on the Horizon for Sept 2021. I thought the Havana Cabana's were cool looking but DH thinks we won't have any privacy and is thinking of a Aft balcony on deck 8. Any thoughts or advice?
  4. So were torn about what to do. We looking at 2 sailings: Freedom 8 night sailing which will do a Southern Caribbean itinerary ( Half Moon Cay, Grand Turk, Bonaire and Aruba) vs. Horizon 6 night Western Caribbean Sailing going to Ocho Rios, Cozumel and Grand Cayman. Heres our situation: Several adults going, most of which are late 30s in age to late 40's in age. All of the adults are pretty active. Children ranging in age from 6 years old to 11 years old We were initially supposed to sail this year on the Breeze ( that has been cancelled ) so the Freedom will be sailing the exact same itinerary that the Breeze wouldve done this year We love the itinerary but we don't care for the smaller ships. After sailing the Breeze and even the magic we knew that we didn't want to sail anything smaller than Dream Class of ships. We have never been to Bonaire or Aruba so again that itinerary is definitely inviting. We've never sailed on the Horizon however we have been to all of the ports that it will visit on this itinerary. We love the thought of a newer bigger ship but the itinerary is just " ok " for us. Also we only get 6 nights with this sailing instead of 8 with the Freedom. We've taken a vote amongst our group and we're dead split 50 /50 Any thoughts on the 2 ships Will we miss having more activities choosing the Freedom? Hows the condition of the Freedom?? Any suggestions / recommendations are appreciated.
  5. Newbies to Carnival. We are an older couple, over 60 who like to have fun eat/drink and find a cool bar to hangout in. We like to be away from the kids. We are looking at the Breeze or Horizon. Which ship would suit us better? Which ship has a Better Serenity deck? We know Carnival is known for families and kids.
  6. We cruised on Horizon last April and loved it. Had a balcony cabin deck 7 I believe. The Havana cabins piqued my interest, in particular deck 5. Not sure why other than maybe it was super close to the bars 😂. Those of you who've stayed in Havana interior & balcony on decks 5 &/or 6, were you able to hear the music from any of the clubs? I know they usually shut down around midnight (except for the late night dance club). We don't go to bed with the chickens but occasionally will turn in before midnight if there's an early excursion the next day.
  7. Has anyone stayed in this room? Pros? Cons?
  8. I have my 20yr wedding anniversary cruise scheduled for May '21 on the Horizon. Anybody think its to soon or shall we be fine?
  9. Hi friends, in our tour of the new big ships we just booked Horizon. it's our first big new ship with Carnival, and had some preconceived notions. I'm trying to schedule our evenings, but all I can do schedule specialty timing. our experience with RCI, and NCL, is that close to sailings (we are 78 days out) you could book the headliner shows, comedy shows, and schedule things around you seating time in the MDR or a speciality restaurant. Does Carnival really not operate this way? Do I have to wait til we are closer? Are all those things just first come first serve? Do you have to mad dash to schedule when you get onboard?
  10. The Carnival Horizon is a beautiful ship. It was fun to sit in the atrium on watch the Dreamscape LED sculpture constantly change. Enjoy some of the still photos from the sculpture.
  11. Can you walk from Deck 6 to 7 using the outside staircase on the secrets decks. Were looking at booking 2 cabins (one cabin deck 6 forward and one cabin deck 7 forward). It would be great if we can get to each others cabins from the outside staircase.
  12. Carnival Horizon was docked with Queen Elizabeth in Oranjsestad, Aruba, The next day we had the Carnival Horizon sailing next to us and passing the Queen Elizabeth as we where heading to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
  13. Scheduled for the 8 day June 13th sailing on the Horizon with the following itinerary: Day1: Departing Miami Day 2: Sea Day Day 3: Sea Day Day 4: Aruba Day 5: Bonaire Day 6: La Romana Day 7: Amber Cove Day 8: Sea Day Question is what 2 days are the formal nights? Ive read conflicting days... Thanks in advance!! Hope we get to sail by then😕
  14. We currently have a cabin on deck 1 midship on the Horizon. And, to my knowledge, the gangway is on deck 1 when at a port. Can anyone tell me if there is a lot of traffic going by the cabin? How bad was it?
  15. October 2021 8 nights this is the biggest ship we’ve been on. Im so excited and full of questions i have OCPD(obsessive compulsive planning disorder) so here’s the first of many On an 8 night cruise, how many formal nights will there be? What are the upcharges for the IMAX and Thrill theaters? Thanks
  16. The last I seen, Carnival was to notify us by/on March 11th, if the Horizon itinerary changed. You may not know until tomorrow/Wednesday/march 11th, just wondered if you have heard anything as yet?
  17. I was told that elegant night on the 6 day Horizon cruise would be Monday night, and Friday night for elegant nights. My question, if the 2nd elegant night is Friday night and we take pictures, how can we see the pictures, and they have them ready by the time we get off the ship on Saturday???
  18. Hi all! I’m reluctantly beginning to accept the fact that we will be canceling our Spring Break cruise plans (Breeze Eastern March 21). While the virus itself doesn’t scare me (two healthy adults in early 40s and two young kids ages 4 and 6), the risk of a quarantine with 2 kids in a 185-square foot room or some other unforeseeable situation does concern me. In looking at alternative options to use the FCC this summer, I see 2 cruises that interest me: the exact Breeze Eastern itinerary we are already booked on (Amber Cove, St. Thomas, San Juan, Grand Turk) or the Horizon 8 night Southern itinerary (Aruba, Curaçao, La Romana, Amber Cove). All ports but St. Thomas would be new to us. We haven’t previously sailed Carnival (prior family cruises have been on Oasis class ships). Given our kids’ ages, and taking into account the bells and whistles and general condition of each ship, as well as the different ports, which itinerary would you recommend? Any advice from the expert Carnival cruisers would be appreciated!

  20. I thought I’d put this out there again. I enjoyed doing it a few months ago. This won’t be as in-depth of a live thread as others, I only do it in my spare time and our cruise comes first, but if anyone has any questions or comments about the Horizon, I’ll be checking in now & again. After a very long drive that began yesterday morning (stopped overnight last night), we arrived at our Miami hotel this afternoon. Traffic in Atlanta yesterday was a nightmare as usual, made even worse by two accidents. South FL wasn’t any better...30-45 min. to drive 10 miles. Getting ready to have some pizza delivered soon, then we’re just relaxing after that drive. Some of my wife’s family are on the cruise too, but they’re in a different hotel. Our hotel shuttle leaves for the port at 10am. We do have FTTF, so at least we won’t have to wait in the early/late line, but we’ll probably have to wait a while in the waiting area. That’s ok, we don’t mind waiting when there’s a cruise at the other end of the line. This is our first time on the Horizon. In fact, our first time on a Vista class. We weren’t sure how we’d feel about this size ship, but wanted to experience it for ourselves. When it’s all said & done, at least we’ll know...and knowing is half the battle (obscure 80’s cartoon reference for those who caught that 😉). Let’s get this party started! Well, after a good night’s sleep first. 😁
  21. Had to share and looking for tips! Was playing around this morning and stumbled upon an amazingly inexpensive balcony guarantee on March 29 Horizon 6day and was assigned a Havana Aft Wrap! Called my PVP and it was meant to be! Haven't cruised in a couple of years and I CANNOT WAIT to get back onboard! Please share your Horizon tips and tricks!
  22. Traveling with my elderly mother, no kids or men this time! ; ) On previous cruises to other destinations there was usually a low impact excursion that included some kind of shopping.. like street market, not brand stores. For Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman I haven't found anything suitable in the Carnival excursions. We've never ever gotten off the ship "alone" .. without it being an official Carnival Excursion. I floated the idea to mom, that we might just be able to get off the ship and find our own way to some kind of street market. _sigh_ I thought she was going to faint at the idea.... How dangerous is that really? Is it worth it? I've promised I wouldn't let her get kidnapped and ransomed (eyeroll) and I'm sure I could keep us close enough to get back to the ship in time.. Are there any street Market type shopping at these ports?
  23. I have Cabins 11268 and 11264 on hold right now. I have been looking at the Deck plans to make sure I didn't pick a noisy cabin. I am struggling with the map lol. It's hard to tell but is Waterworks right over my cabins? Or is it a little bit ahead? Has anyone had these cabins and can tell me if they are super noisy due to waterworks?
  24. I know things can change because of the Coronaviris for the ports, but if you have been on the 6 day Western Horizon cruise, can you tell me what days the 2 elegant nights will be? I am STILL trying to look forward to something "positive" in this cruise that is coming up in two weeks!
  25. There was no dinner upcharges at the Pig and Anchor last week on the Horizon. They said they are testing this for a few weeks. The place was packed
