    Magic or Horizon

    Both have Southern Caribbean itinerary. The Magic sails from FLL, the Horizon from Miami. Magic ports are HMC, Grand Turk, Curaco, and Aruba. The Horizon sails to Grand Turk, La Romania, Curaco. and Aruba. Looking at Dec. 2019. Please help me decide! The prices are similar.

    Horizon and movies

    So there's the free Dive in series, right? What's the deal with the Imax and isn't there one other type of movie on board? What's the cost?
  3. I saw someone had posted on FB there were not any shows on the Horizon? Because a cast member passed away at the end of December? Has anyone else heard about this? If they are not doing shows in the evening, what entertainment has been offered? Will there be shows for our sailing this Saturday? That all being said, I'm not worried about the shows - I'm sure we will keep ourselves entertained! Just curious (and I'm sure my husband would say nosy! ) If this is accurate, I hope the friends and family of the crew member are doing okay.

    Formal Night On The Horizon?

    Is there a specific formal night on the Horizon? We are booked on the March 9th sailing and were trying to decide when to go to the steakhouse. Thanks.

    Horizon questions

    Hello~ We will be on the 8 day Horizon out of Miami. Is Quest going to be on our sailing? Does anyone happen to have the Funtimes? We were unable to get Havana cabins. Will we still be able to have a good time, suffering on the Serenity deck?! 😉 (Kidding, well kind of! ) Also, if one of the people in our cabins has Platinum, do we still need to have FTTF for the person that is not Platinum? Would the person that is not Platinum still be able to board and debark early? Thanks!

    Horizon trip review

    First and foremost, I posted a few weeks ago if I should pay $800 to upgrade to the Havana area. I think most people thought I was nuts, but wow. The Havana area was our entire vacation. Best $800 I've ever spent! I truly don't know if we'll be able to cruise in the future on a ship that doesn't have this area. It was that good. I attached a picture I took of the sunset from the Havana area. The good: Havana! The bartenders and bar staff made the cruise. Best bar staff I've ever encountered. They were amazing and just made our vacation so much better. The Havana pool is a bit small, but was never full. The hot tubs were huge! Almost as big as the pool! They could have been hotter, but the staff did increase the temperature every time it was asked. Everyone in this area was just SO NICE! Best passengers we've ever cruised with. Pig and Anchor was great. It was the best pay restaurant IMO. And half the price of the Steakhouse or Teppanyaki. We ended up eating at Pig and Anchor for 3 out of the 6 nights. I really liked the decor and didn't miss the glass elevators at all. I'm a little bit confused now by everyone saying how much they didn't care for it. Carnival has finally entered the modern times and doesn't look like a floating Atlantic City casino. The elevators also were great. They were a bit slow at times, but so much more efficient. I'd love it if every hotel or big venue goes to this type of elevator. We didn't spend too much time up there, but we liked the Dr. Seuss splash pad and water slides. The water was warm and they were fun. Also embarkation! We just walked right on. We didn't have anything special and I would have been pissed if I paid for FTTF. I didn't hear one person who said they waited in line to board at all. Still happily shocked at how quickly the process went. Debarkation also was easy peasy. The average: The food. We only went to the dining room the first night. It just wasn't that good. Carnival's schtick of making you pay for better food definitely worked on us. The breakfast was the best breakfast at sea I've ever had. Lunch was pretty good too. I"m not a buffet person, and typically dislike all cruise food. However, between the Great Wok, Pig and Anchor, and Cucina for lunch, we did well. The sea day brunch is also still amazing. We did the Sky Ride. It was fun, but not worth waiting in a long line for. We went in port and didn't wait. I would have been disappointed if we waited more than 10 min for it. I did enjoy Guys and was surprised I did, I was not expecting to like it. Blue Iguana was fine too. The bad: The Steakhouse. I am honestly really disappointed. Before this cruise, I was team 'the steakhouse is the best meal ever and well worth the money!". Now I'm like 'ehhhh.....' Every course we had from appetizer to dessert was just...fine? Nowhere near worth the money we spent on it. My free filet at the sea day brunch well surpassed my filet mignon from the steakhouse. We also didn't love Teppanyaki. It was also just okay. Not worth the money at all. Pig and Anchor is literally half the price on average of these other two restaurants and so much better. Our Havana interior room was also just too small. There wasn't the standard interior couch or dresser. We had to basically live out of our suitcases under the bed for the week. Please note that although I greatly disliked this, my husband thinks I'm overreacting and he had no issue with it at all 🙂 Last note that has left such a sour taste in my mouth is how many people we saw removing tips. I knew from here that it was thing, but not to the extent it was. The moved the line to the Havana bar because the grand atrium couldn't handle all of the people. People were waiting 2 hours in line to remove them. It was insane and ridiculous to me. I thought it was like 20 people per cruise, not 1/4 of the ship! I wish Carnival would just remove them all together and just increase the cruise fare the $150 it cost. Any questions? Just ask!

    Horizon Havana Cabana

    Well we did it...we booked a Havana Cabana and now my husband wants every cruise to be in a Havana room. It is AMAZING! Just off the 6 day cruise out of Miami yesterday. We were on a ship with 4,000+ and felt like we were on a ship of 100. Obviously we will not be cruising in Havana every time since currently only Vista and Horizon have that option but what an amazing experience. From the room, to the walkout balcony to the hot tubs/pool to the Havana bar it was awesome!

    Horizon Family harbor

    Does any one know if there is a differnce between a family harbor ocean view cabin to a "regular" ocean view cabin - only in terms of the decoration, general looks of the room and toilet, size of thr room? Thanks

    T-mobile and Horizon

    Hello, Sorry if this has been asked and answered. How is T-Mobile on the Horizon and the islands we will be going to? We will be going to Aruba, Grand Turk, Curacao and La Romana. I will probably be getting the social media package. I know I need to put the phone on airplane mode once on the ship. Thanks!
  11. Off the wall question ... but for those of you who are far sighted ... lol Do they have the magnified mirror on the wall in the bathroom? I don't want to unnecessarily bring mine.. Thanks !
  12. If you were only going to dine in one of the Horizon’s extra charge specialty restaurants, which one would you choose? We will be on the ship next week with our family, which includes grandchildren aged 5, 7, and 9.
  13. Hi. Just curious what the earliest check-in time normally is for the Horizon out of Miami? I know we definitely didn’t get the earliest check-in time, but we got 12:30 which I am hoping is fairly good. I can’t seem to snag FTTF. Thanks!
  14. I received notice yesterday that I should arrive an hour later for checkin as the Horizon will be late into Miami tomorrow. (12:30 arrival appt instead of 1130). Anyone been through this before who can share their experience? Is this orderly or does chaos and long queues become the order of the day?
  15. Any recent cruisers can tell me what movies they were showing at the Dive in Movies or at the IMAX?

    Horizon

    I believe that this is Carnival's newest and largest ship and is one of the reasons I would like to try it out. It also has loads of eating places on board and that will please both my wife and myself. Two questions: How is the entertainment such as shows, etc.? I would think that a brand new ship would have excellent entertainment, at least for the first year or so. I see that there are Interior Cabins with Picture Windows. Some of the other Carnival ships also have these cabins. Can someone explain how they are set up? On the ship's schematic they seem located at the bow. Are they the same price as other Interior Cabins or more expensive? Thanks.............................:confused:

    Horizon December 15 Questions

    Hello everyone! Couple questions - we will be on the 12/15 cruise and we have a family harbor suite. Does the harbor lounge have hot water for making hot chocolate/tea? We will be boarding at 11:30. We plan on changing into our swimsuits and heading to Lido to grab a bite and lounge. Is that the best plan while the ship is loading? Does the "secret deck" up front get crowded for the sail away? Trying to decide how early we need to "sneak" up there lol.

    Carnival Horizon Laundry

    Can't seem to confirm that there are self serve launderettes on board the Horizon. Can anyone confirm. Thank You
  21. Does anyone know if the interior cabins on Carnival Horizon have a clothesline in the bathroom?
  22. Just got an email from Carnival saying the embarkation time has been delayed by one hour for the Horizon. We had the first slot at 11:30. Anyone else have this happen to them and is this just a ploy to get people to come a little later so it's not a madhouse???
  23. Well hello everyone! I'm back! I know a lot of people have been probably wondering where I have been...it's been a hectic and complicated year for me. So many things have happened this year and I just needed a break. I deactivated all my social media, removed myself from the internet and computer (other than turning in homework assignments and tests) and completely changed life up as it was known around August. Everyone knows I've been in school for a while to get my bachelors, but I have been slacking on my classes over the year(s). Well, I put my mind to it that I was going to get my butt in gear and finish. Last year I only took 1 class in the spring and decided to take the summer off (because it's the only semester they will allow you to take off and not be penalized). Well, I enjoyed it so much that I also took the winter off...which meant come this year, I had to reapply to my school and that meant lots of paperwork. I took my spring classes, summer classes and just finished up my winter classes. I have 1 more class to go and I'M DONE! Finito, adios school, completed. This last class I just finished lasted from August until the week of my cruise...nutrition! Uh! I have been avoiding it like the plague. I'm the most un-nutritionalist (is that a word?) you will meet. LOL It consisted of anywhere from 5-12 quizzes weekly and 1 test weekly. Then there was 2 "mid-term" tests and a horrible 2-hour final. Whew! I'm proud to say I passed with a 96% and it's all behind me. My youngest son just bought a house (I'm such a proud momma but I'm missing him terribly since he's been gone), my oldest son just had another baby (that makes 7 for me now-I'm getting old), we sold one of our businesses (the skate/bike shop) and have been doing a complete remodel on our kitchen. It has been hectic! I'm sure there's a lot more but I'm jet-lagged and can't think at the moment. Anyhow, we normally take a November cruise (which actually used to be a December family cruise but we stopped doing that a few years back because it was one of the busiest times of the year for our store and the hubby complained about missing out on all the sales during the Christmas season that we pushed it back to November) but with my hectic class schedule, we decided not to go this time. Then, of course, out of the blue, Kendra starts talking about a Christmas cruise instead. We started scouring the internet and booked last minute (less than 30 days before the cruise) on the Carnival Horizon. I liked the ports we would be going to (all repeats for me but 3 new for Kendra) and a new ship! I didn't have much time to get myself too excited or research ports but we managed to pull it all together quickly. Since Kenny had just had a baby Dec 10 (was due Thanksgiving, but she decided to cook a little longer), he wasn't able to go. Since Kolin had just put a large down payment on a house, he wasn't able to go. That meant it was just us and Kendra and family. The day we were leaving on the plane, Kendra's fiance backed out. His dad has been in bad shape the last 2 years, but has progressively become worse. They put him on hospice the week before and didn't expect him to make it to Christmas. I'm glad to report he's still with us at this time. However, Billy didn't want to be away on a cruise if something was to happen. This meant that Kendra was now cruising with TWO kids...on her OWN! If any of you are thinking this scenario through...you know this can't be a good thing. LOL I'll jump ahead and report that when Kendra's plane landed last night, she didn't even make it home before dropping both kids off with their Aunt Chrissy (who was the one who cruised with us one year to Bermuda). Kendra said she's now on vacation! So, this is the beginning of our cruise. This was an 8-day cruise sailing out of Miami to Grand Turk, Dominican Republic, Curacao, and Aruba!
  24. ...Anyone have them and can post them...Thanks in advance.
  25. Hello All!! Our family is planning a Reunion Vacation on the Horizon for January, 2020. I am a light sleeper and have been reviewing the deck plans before booking to determine the best balcony for my husband and I on Decks 8 or 9. Has anyone stayed in the Havana Aft Balcony on Deck 8? How much music/noice will the cabins get from the pool area and for how long? Also, the Premium Balconies (Deck 8) are close to the Havana Aft Balconies; does this cabin get music/noise from the Havana area? Thanks
