Hello everyone. . . . It is once again time for a Cruise. Welcome to the start of “LIVE” from Carnival Horizon. I will drive up to my pre-cruise Hotel tomorrow for my sailing on Carnival Horizon 4 Night Cruise to Bermuda.
Well, we may be heading to Bermuda, as the itinerary could possibly change as Hurricane Florence has changed several cruise ship (Bermuda) itineraries to Bahamas or Canada recently. I will happily sail this New Ship wherever she decides to go as Carnival has suggested that “We will remain a safe distance from the storms at all times

This will be the last Sailing for Carnival Horizon from New York. After this cruise, she will be sailing to her home port of Miami with for year-round sailings. There will be no passengers for the 2 night sailing from NYC to MIA. There will be much fanfare as Horizon will replace Carnival Vista in Miami as Vista will soon be sailing from Galveston.

I recently went on a tour of Carnival Horizon, and I decided to book this short sailing to give it a look see. She has a lot to do and she is much different than other Carnival Ships I have sailed. Carnival Horizon is a Vista Class ship and started service in April 2018. Carnival Horizon features Dr. Seuss Water Park, an IMAX theater, Sky Ride and some unique new attractions. Carnival’s Vista Class also boasts some interesting concepts for accommodations including the Havana Class cabins and Suites, Family Harbor Cabins and Suites as well as the only Carnival Ship to have Aft facing Cove Balconies.

I will be posting “LIVE” daily with photos and comments about the public areas, cabins, as well as Bermuda (or Canada). I have read that the new Carnival Internet speeds are very good with repeaters in each cabin. I have also read that the Horizon Casino may be very “Radio Friendly”
I am looking forward to a delightful Cruise on Carnival’s newest Funship.

Have a cup of Coffee, relax and welcome aboard!

Thanks for tuning in . . .

Hello everyone . . . There has been no word on an Itinerary modification for Carnival Horizon. I will be driving to my Pre- Cruise Hotel this afternoon and tomorrow morning I will head down to Pier 88.

I am hoping to sail to Bermuda, but Canada will be fine if that's where we need to go . . .

Thanks for tuning in.

Yikes. . . there will be a little traffic on the way to New York.

Here is the "probable path" of the storm center (Hurricane Florence)

I am happy that the storm center is over 350nm SE of Bermuda. . .

Enjoy your cruise. By the latest hurricane tracks, Bermuda is where you'll go.

We had a spa cabin on the Vista last year. Didn't enjoy the spa as much as we've had on the Dream and Breeze, but liked the closeness to the Serenity deck. Just swing up early and grab a spot. And the lunch salad bar there is wonderful.

Don't forget the Alchemy Bar. If Annamaria is still on board, she'll take good care of you. One of the best barkeeps/mixologists around.

Carnival Horizon is making her way to Pier 88 in New York City. . .

It appears that she is near Atlantic City, NJ.

I think she may make it to the Pier very early.

I only use WAZE for driving. Much better than google maps! It will get you to the city faster! Enjoy your cruise!

And with the aid of a pair of Moran tugs, she is safely into Berth 2 of Pier 88...the Oceania Insignia is in Berth 1. Later, the HAL Zuiderdam will arrive at Pier 90....
