Horizon 7/3 review, a year in the making...

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the review! What an exciting life you lead! I can't wait for my family Harbor Suite in December.

 

 

 

One more question... I suspect my kids are older than typical families in the family Harbor area (16, 14, 11). Will the benefit of the big room and the lounge outweigh the feeling that they are surrounded by children?

 

 

 

Good question, my guess is the two older would feel out of place. Most were younger but we did not spend a lot of time there.

Thanks Jeff! Just got to get the flight out of the way, not a bog fam of red eyes, but it is the only way to get there.

Final thoughts: The Horizon gets ripped here a lot. The main show lounge has some lousy site lines, especially from the upper level. The room for he comedy club is probably to small. I actually sent a couple of emails to some management friends suggesting that at least for the G rated shows for the popular comedians they move it to the big show room. They both laughed said sure, we will et right on it. They mentioned that it had been brought up before and the reason they do not do it is the comedians fear it would look empty and people would not come to it.
I thnk if I had to choose my favorite comedy club space it would have to be the forward deck 1 lounges on the Spirit-class ships. They're big enough that you don't have to get there terribly early to get seats, but small enough that you don't have to worry about low attendance. Plus you have graduated seating. I have hopes for the coming Carnival Sunrise, since they're using the old cigar bar whch has a far amount of room.

 

Enjoy your Azamara cruise!

That is kind of what I was suspecting. We booked it almost 2 years ago and we were up sold from to Interior rooms, LOL. Now I am excited for it! I think my big kids will like the coffee and ice cream in the family Lounge :-)

Thanks for a fantastic review!

 

Enjoy your med cruise, hope you do a review as well.

 

Land vacation at Turks sounds interesting as well.

 

Looking forward to meeting you on the Journey's cruise in November!

Lots of new to us ports and struggling right now with excursions.

I agree in the Spirit class comedy room being best. Thanks Kathy, sorry we did not get to spend a lot of time together Nd hopefully will sail together in the not distant future.
