  1. We sailed on the Horizon May 18 2019 - 8 day Southern Caribbean .This was our 6th Carnival cruise. Our daughter chose it for her college graduation trip. 🙂 We stopped in Grand Turk, La Ramona Dominican Republic, Curacao, and Aruba. We had abundant sunshine the entire trip. It rained a little on sail away night and again late afternoon the last day. We flew in from Kansas City to Ft Lauderdale. A college friend of my husband's is great to pick us up and take us to the port the next day. We went to the Margarittaville on the beach and ate at Land Shark. Good food and they were having live entertainment. We had a Havana Cabana and loved it. We usually have two cabins (one for us and one for our kids) but our son got married last fall so didn't go with us this time. I took a few extra organization things for the cabin and we did ok with 3 people. I wouldn't do it all the time, but it is definitely doable. I took cheap plastic baskets to hold things on the shelves by the vanity in the room and a clear mesh hanging shoe organizer for all kinds of things - meds, hair stuff, lint roller, etc. We really liked the Havana area. No one under the age of 12 can stay in that section. One wristband for each person in the cabin is issued (in an envelope on the vanity when we entered our room). We could access the pool by the walkway outside our cabana. There is a sign by the door to the pool from the Havana bar that says no one past that point without a wristband. There was always an available chair. The pool was not overcrowded. We saw the same people over & over and had great conversations. The bar staff (Ronno, Jose, etc) were great as were the lifeguards. We had excellent service and they knew us by name. The area was busy but not uncomfortably so. After 7:00 pm that area is open to everyone. We had Faster To The Fun, as we usually do. We arrived at the Miami port at 11:00. Dropped off our bags, checked in, and waiting in 18 minutes. Debarkation was taking longer than normal but we were still onboard around noonish. We get FTTF so we can board early. That's our first day of vacation so we want to spend it on the ship and not sitting around a hotel waiting to check out. Want to make the most of every minute ! With FTTF, we can go directly to our cabin & drop off any carry on stuff. Our luggage is usually already there and we can quickly unpack anytime. Three of our six bags were there . The other three didn't arrive until after 8:00 pm. We dress up a bit every night for dinner and ended up going to eat in our regular clothes. It was fine, but I was irritated. The non FTTF family at our table had their luggage early. This is the second time we had the priority luggage issue. Not a deal breaker, but it is a service I paid for. I also like the priority line at guest services. The few times I needed to stop there, a long line waited on the other side. We had assigned 6:00 pm dinner in the Reflections dining room. We sat a table of 9. Shout out to Katleyn & Joe's families. Coincidentally, we were all on the same facebook group. It was fun hearing what each other had done in each port or around the ship. Great tablemates! We had prepurchased the Bubbles for my daughter & I. (I am an avid Pepsi drinker :)). No cheers for us. I like a good pina colada or margaritta by the pool but no way we'd drink 15 a day each. We paid for alcohol as we went. I also booked and paid for a couple of spa services when they were having the sale. More on that later ~
  2. I am looking to book a cruise for summer of 2020. I've narrowed it down to either Magic or Horizon. Both are 8 day southern Caribbean. the ports are Aruba, curacao, la Romana and Amber Cove. The Horizon is $44 more. I've only been on carnival glory and carnival liberty. I can't decide which to choose.
  3. Anyone stayed in a Cove balcony on Horizon? Any reason not to book one? Will the wait for elevators from deck 2 drive this impatient person crazy?
  4. We were staying in Paris To get away from your parents You look so proud standing there with a frown and a cigarette, posting pictures of yourself on the internet **Paris-The Chainsmokers** (This song has absolutely nothing to do with anything, it was just stuck in my head the whole time we were in Paris!) Welcome to Willdra’s Hyperactive Carnival Horizon April 15-22 Cruise Review! TLDR Version (Too Long Didn’t Read): We had a great time, loved the Horizon, and we would do it all over again, twice if we could! P.S. Horizon pictures will follow the Paris portion. Still here? Sweet!!! My husband W and I took this journey as a part of a group cruise that our daughter (A) and her fiancé (Z) take every year. We've sailed with their group before, and we were thrilled that it worked out for us to join them again, especially on the brand new Horizon. It all started out as just the cruise with maybe a couple of days at the end in Barcelona. Somewhere along the way, it morphed into a pre-cruise stay in Paris, then the Horizon Cruise, followed by a post-cruise piece of Barcelona, and a short after party in Paris. Too much? Yep, that's why it's Hyperactive! So A and Z play a super nerdy card game, that you've prolly never heard of, called Magic the Gathering. They also belong to a "Magic Cruise Group" on FB, which is a group of peeps who sail together annually, to play….Magic the Gathering. Woooohooooo!!! This is actually the group's 10th cruise together, so it's become a tradition for them. I’ve never played MTG before, since you have to be smart, and you know, remember things. #toohard W has played tho and he seems to enjoy it. When he wins. Which isn't that often. After over a year of agonizing, waiting, and planning (I did all of the planning, everyone else just waited), travel day finally arrived! I had an all-day meeting on travel day, so I technically “worked” until 4 (worked=sat in my seat daydreaming and faking attentiveness, which I’m great at). My friend AC, and her friend V, were joining us this time too. Our flight was scheduled to leave at 10:15 pm. We drove over to AC’s, which is closer to the airport, at around 6:15, to leave our car. Then my brother picked us all up and took us to Hartsfield-Jackson International. It would prolly cost an arm, leg, and 3 baby teeth to park our car somewhere for the 15 days that we would be gone, so we were blessed to have other options. When we got to the airport, the first thing we noticed was how many bags AC had. Not only did she have one over sized, overweight check in, but she had the audacity to have 2 AND 2 carry-ons. She was basically carrying around the weight of a medium sized human in luggage. Oh and I forgot to mention that when we got there, she handed me a gift bag containing a big heavy loaf of banana bread that she’d baked that morning, accompanied by a chunk of cheese! Banana Bread. And. Cheese. Now don't get me wrong. Normally, I would've done the Electric Slide at the sight of the cheese, but we were going to France, where we would have access to some of the most exquisite bread and cheese known to man, so she packs her own to carry??? In this bag???? Nice. Well, the way my luggage is setup, I have zero room for this! So I carry it in my hand. I look like I don’t have the good sense that God gave a groundhog, but ok it made her happy. This trip is already starting out weird, or normal for us, depending on how you look at it. We were flying on British Airways to Heathrow, then from Heathrow to Paris. We'd purchased round trip tickets from ATL to CDG for around $500 total per person. Then we chose another round trip from CDG to BCN. For this we paid $150 per person. Kayak.com and skyscanner.com were my BFF’s for reals. I high key stalked them for months to get good deals, and it really paid off! After AC forked over her extra baggage fare (which was almost as much as her airfare), we went to security. There was no line in security, but I still managed to impede progress by pushing all of the trays containing my crap on the floor. Everything went flying because the tables were uneven, I wasn’t really looking, and I was just trying to get through. Passports, shoes, Chapstick, dental floss, and some embarrassing personal items, all spilled on the floor. Aye Dios Mio! AC and I scrambled to pick everything up quickly to stave off any further shame. W was long gone. He wanted no parts of my foolishness. Can’t blame him. I would've left me too. When we got past the security incident we ate some overpriced mediocre food, and started the slow wait to board. W went to check the rate to purchase Euros from Travelex while we were waiting, and he liked what he saw, so he got our Euros there. We had the option of getting them from our bank at a better rate beforehand, but we didn't cuz that was too much like right, so we started looking when we got to the airport. Eventually people started lining up because that’s what people do, but we sat and waited for the official boarding call. Welp the announcement was soon made that we would NOT be boarding yet due to a malfunctioning door. I guess you kinda need the door to close securely on the plane in order to have a safe flight. Who would've thought? We were told that the next announcement would be in 20 minutes. No problem. After about 18 minutes people started lining up again but we were told that the technician needed another 15 minutes to fix the door. Groans ensued from the line as it dispersed. Again. We got the real boarding announcement promptly 15 minutes after that. We all got up, but I guess people were skeptical now because the line didn't really form again, and we ended up first in our Zone. The plane was a large 777 and W and I had a middle row of 4 seats to ourselves. Score! W and I all ready to go!! He's so happy he's not driving! Since we were behind schedule leaving we were concerned about making our connection at Heathrow. Turns out the Captain had a nice tailwind that got us back on track. We didn't have a ton of time to spare, but we would be ok. After a long uneventful flight, where the door closed, and didn't blow off, our plane basically landed in an airplane parking lot at Heathrow. In order to get to the terminal, we had to debark down some stairs then hop on a bus. The bus was packed full, and it was a long way to the terminal. A.Long.Way! I was glad that my bladder wasn’t tripping, cuz we would've had a “situation” if it was. While we were in the air, I received a text from British Airways saying that they would check our carry-ons for free, but we had to go to a specific location to drop them off. Once we got to the airport, nothing made sense. Nothing. We had to ask to find out where we needed to go. I must say tho, everyone that we spoke with was very nice. I was sorta disappointed that I didn't see Harry Potter in the few minutes that I spent in London. I was really looking for him too. Bummer. Maybe next time. We waited 15-20 minutes in the waiting area, and it was time to board again. I had plans to eat some of AC’s banana bread since I brought it all this way, but I fell asleep as soon as I fastened my seatbelt. I woke up when we started to land in Paris, and W nudged me saying he could see the Eiffel Tower. The flight was so quick that the flight attendants didn't even finish food service. We got there in about an hour and a half. Deplaning was quicker this time and soon we were claiming our baggage. We were also supposed to meet AC’s friend V at CDG since she got there before us. She was in another terminal tho, so AC went to hook up with her, and we told her we would see them at the hotel. Paris was calling me, and I had to answer ASAP! When we were ready to leave, I ordered the Uber to the hotel. It was so easy! Almost as soon as I hit confirm, he appeared. Our driver was very nice too. He brought our bags all the way into the hotel, and made sure we got checked in ok. We were staying at Hotel Scarlett which is a fairly new, but small boutique hotel located in the Belleville area. Here are some pictures of Hotel Scarlett. The rooms are smaller than American Hotel rooms. I guess the French are so tiny, that they don’t need much space. Must be nice!
  5. Probably a dumb question, but if I purchase the Premium Wifi on the Horizon, can I connect through my laptop? or does it have to be hand held device? Also how is the speed from your cabin, we are in a spa cabin deck 12. Thanks
  6. Anyone know what terminal the Horizon will be at tomorrow? My wife and I were curious so we selected the correct parking garage. Thanks in advance
  7. Hi all! First off, I've been a lurker on this site for several months, but this is my first post, and I would like to personally thank you all for providing such excellent and helpful information, tips, opinions, etc. You guys are great, and each post has helped inform decisions for my (wonderful) cruise! I just got off the Carnival Horizon (5/4 sail date in the Southern Caribbean), which was my second overall cruise AND my second Carnival cruise. I've got a few questions I hope you can assist with and a couple of opinions to share. I would love to share this brief list of top and bottom three opinions about the Horizon with John Heald but (although I've read information from him on a social media site), I cannot seem to find a way to contact him. First question: does every passenger receive a survey to give praise and blahs, or are surveys randomly generated? My top 3 praises of the cruise: 1. THE PEOPLE -- Cruisers can say what they want about Carnival passengers, but I think I and my party of five were in great company for the past eight days. [If you were on our sailing, THANK YOU for being so friendly and making the environment so inviting!] Aside from a few nasties we met in the elevators and one smartypants on Lido, EVERYONE on the ship was so nice and so engaging and so helpful. Truly delightful cursing company. 2. THE CREW -- Our main dining room staff (Runata, Gordana, and I Komang) were FANTASTIC. Even on nights that my group wasn't very hungry or interested in the menu, we went to the main dining room just to visit with our requested team. This group truly felt like family. While we never had poor service on the Horizon, some crew members stood out above the rest (this team was at the TOP), and my group was blown away by how amazing the service and kindness was. Additionally, our room steward, Widalta, was unbelievably dedicated to assuring our experience was positive. Even the crew members that simply said hello or smiled or engaged with us were amazing. 3. THE COMEDY -- Although I did enjoy the shows that time allowed us to attend (making it to dinner and shows and ports was difficult!), the comedy club was the highlight of my evening. Not naming names but one comedian was NOT enjoyable, but the other three that were MORE than made up for it, and I'm so glad that the Horizon booked these talented individuals. Honorable Mention: Guy's Burgers. No other comments needed :) My 3 Blahs 1. THE POOLS -- We never quite made it into the crowded pools. We once got into the whirlpool on the Aft of Lido but were not impressed. Loved the Havana whirlpools though! Though it never felt crowded in other areas,, the pools and loungers were impossible to utilize. There's plenty of seating (we were often on deck 5...), which was nice, but it would have been better to have the chance to enjoy Serenity and the loungers by the pools. 2. THE SCHEDULING -- As mentioned above, it was nearly impossible (re: required LOTS of planning) to enjoy dinner and shows each evening. It almost always seemed like nothing happened during the day, but evenings were full of fun things we wanted to do and had to make some difficult decisions to get to "the best." 3. I don't want to say this but THE ELEVATORS. They'd be great, and I love the idea, but the amount of people that did not want to learn how they operate was unbearable. Maybe there was a tutorial that I missed, but if not, it's greatly needed. Our second sea day (day 6), people were still jumping into the elevators saying, "Don't know where I'm going but I trust you made the right call..." That was annoying. Not that we didn't want to use the stairs, but of my group of five, three are 70+ years old. Therefore, we often needed to use the elevators, and it would've been if there were at least signs on how to use them. Honorable Mention: LITTLE THINGS: the placement of columns in the the Liquid Lounge (common complaint, I know), the Hub App didn't always work for all of our group, pictures were often "lost" while other passengers' pictures would show up on our section, the "stale" popcorn (I didn't think it was stale, but it was a big deal to one in my group), and the "boring" activities that are actually sales pitches. I'd really appreciate any advice on giving feedback, particularly our praise to our crew staff members. For anyone that has any questions, I'm happy to answer! Lastly -- my first cruise was Western on the Glory (Grand Cayman, Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel), and this one was Southern (Grand Turk, La Romana, Curacao, and Aruba). What suggestions would you have for ports for the third cruise?! Any ship suggestions? Again, thank you to the whole board!
  8. Has anyone stayed in room 2353? I'm looking for reviews on noise, view (obstructed, lifeboat above) overall experience with room etc. Pics and videos would be awesome.
  9. We are considering a cruise on the Horizon because of the itinerary. We are well seasoned cruisers ( over 30 cruises) having cruised on a variety of cruise lines including Carnival. After checking reviews I am wondering...... from service to food....is it really that terrible? We have enjoyed our previous Carnival cruises but this is giving us second thoughts about booking the Horizon. We would appreciate hearing from Horizon cruisers..... should we stay away from this ship? TIA!
  10. Is it worth it? And what exactly does it include?
  11. Anyone one stay in cabin 10298? Booking it and was try to see a review or some info on that cabin. Like privacy, noise level, etc. Thanks
  12. Hi, My Aunt is looking to cruise with me and my husband in fall of next year. I booked an inside Havana room, but she wants a balcony. She can only afford the extended balconies off the back of the ship. Privacy is important to her so she wanted to book the 9th floor. Rooms 9466 and 9468 are available, but she read reviews where people said that the Lido deck above is loud from chairs scraping (apparently crew move them overnight or early AM) and its also by the stairs which have a door and people let the door slam. Has anyone stayed in these room and can either confirm or deny the amount of noise? Would anyone recommend floor 8 instead to compromise between privacy and noise level? The problem is with the lower back balconies is that the balconies on the floor above look onto yours due to the slant on the ship. Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  13. Does anyone have any recent fun times for the 6 day itinerary? Also, what are the must do's? Deck parties, shows, games, food and liquor tastings ect? Leaving on Sunday and don't want to miss anything good!
  14. We are trying to choose our Jan. 2020 cruise. We are trying to choose between 6 Days on Magic or Horizon. Would love some feed back from those who have been on either or both. Here are the details. Horizon Spa Interior 6 day out of Miami stops in Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Magic Spa Interior 6 day out of Fort Lauderdale. Stops in Nassau, Amber Cove & Grand Turks We have never been on a Vista class ship but have been to Cozumel & Grand Cayman several times. In contrast we have been on the Dream but have never been to Nassau or Amber Cove. What would your preference be and why? Also how are the spa amenities on each of the ships? Is the Horizon much better?
  15. I read a lot about how scarce the lounge chairs are on Horizon but what about near Waterworks? Our son spends all of his time on the slides so I am wondering on sea days how early do we need to get on deck to get two loungers close to waterworks? Please don't let it turn into a discussion about reserving chairs and leaving for hours. I know that's a problem and I'm not the type to do that. If I want a chair I plan to be sitting in it.
  16. Hi; We'll be sailing on the Horizon in Aug - Do they sell souvenir ship models in the ship stores? On our past cruise (Conquest), we're able to buy one and the lady who sold it to us was very nice - She advised us that we could get it autographed by the ship captain in the casino (apparently, the captain has a meet and greet on one of the nights?) Thanks,
  17. I am considering booking the Southern Caribbean on the Fascination the week of Christmas. I've been on this itinerary before, but it was on the Liberty. I loved the Liberty. I've also been on the Fantasy to the Bahamas from South Carolina, which was my least favorite cruise. The Fantasy just seemed dirty and more cheesy to me, and the crowd seemed different too. When I did the Southern Caribbean in the past, I was a solo traveler. This time I will be bringing my boyfriend with me, who has never taken a cruise before. I was ready to book it, and then the lady on the phone at Carnival told me that I may not like the Fascination because it's an older ship. She sent me a lot of cruises on the newer ships, and told me to consider those. They are, of course, more expensive. I also like the islands on the Southern Caribbean, and that I can pair a couple days in Puerto Rico beforehand. So, thoughts on the Fascination? I'm mainly interested in the food, serenity area for adults (loved the quiet cabanas on the Liberty), and entertainment. He's really into comedy, and I'm really into beach music and dancing. I liked the outdoor dance parties that the Liberty had at night. The other ship that I'm looking at is the Horizon, but it's around $500 more expensive per person. It also leaves from Miami, which is maybe a bit cheaper on flights but less exciting to pair with a land trip. All new islands for me, but I'm not sure I'd like them better than the Southern Caribbean ones. The ones on the Southern Caribbean were the prettiest that I've seen. Way better than the Bahamas and Mexico. Thanks in advance!!
  18. My wife and I are avid Carnival cruisers (22 so far) and are considering the 8-day Southern cruise aboard the Horizon next year (May 2-10). I've read several not-so-good reviews here on Cruise Critic about the Horizon. Should we give more consideration to this cruise, or decide on another ship to sail on. We've never been on the Horizon. We are open to all suggestions. Thanks!
  19. We're off our Horizon cruise for just under a week and wanted to take the time to give a brief review. Overall we loved the ship and had a fantastic time. It was packed and we knew that going into the cruise as it was Spring Break/Easter week but that didn't impact our experience more than a little bit. It was my husband and I (26 CCL cruises) and our 13yo son. We booked an interior cabin, Deck 10. Having the third bed as a pullman v. a trundle made a big difference in the comfort of our room for us. We don't spend much time in the room so interior is usually fine for us but not having the extra bed take up floor space was a big plus for us. The location was great for us as we could hit the Lido deck with ease and we never heard any noise from the public areas of the ship at all. Service overall was excellent. We did notice that the drink servers were virtually none existent on the decks other than in the main Lido area mid ship. We had assigned early dining and had a great wait staff serving us. The assistant maitre'd took note that I had ordered the Indian Vegetarian entree the first two nights and stopped by our table near the end of our second dinner. She asked if I was vegan/vegetarian and when I said that I wasn't and that I just loved Indian cuisine she offered to get me a non-vegetarian Indian entree each night if I would like from the crew dining room. Sure enough, each night I was able to get both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian offering if I wanted. She stopped by our table each night to check on us. She explained that this is an option on every CCL ship as long as the guest requests. With all of our cruises and all of my research this is something I never knew!
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. I have the address for the Miami port as: 1015 North America Way Miami, Florida 33132 Which should be the address for Horizon's dock but which terminal do we use? Terminal D - 1435 North Cruise Boulevard, Port of Miami, Miami, FL 33132 Terminal E - 1265 North Cruise Boulevard, Port of Miami, Miami, FL 33132 Trying to determine the exact address to give to the cab driver. Thanks.
  23. I know a lot of people like to look at Fun Times before sailing, so I thought I'd share mine from my recent spring break cruise on the Horizon. I hope the upload works...😎 Carnival Horizon 03-31-19 Fun Times.pdf
  24. Does anyone know if the walls and or ceiling on the Horizon are magnetic?
  25. Hi all. Thanks for any help in advance. My husband and I are looking into booking a 6 day cruise on carnival horizon next spring for us and our daughter. We are both 31 and love NCLs freestyle type of cruising. We have only sailed Carnival once and that was 6 years ago on the Freedom. I remember us thinking that the food and entertainment weren’t as good as we experienced on NCL. Can anyone who cruises both Carnival and NCL let me know if you found the food and entertainment better than it used to be?
