question for cruisers that have been on the Horizon

Recommended Posts

Was access allowed in the front of deck 7 at the front of the boat? I know on the Breeze & other older boats, but you can go out front on the new Horizon??This will help me decide what cabin I will book!

Thank you

We haven't been on her yet (Feb, 2019) but from comparing deck plans of the three ships you mentioned, it looks you can't get out there on the Horizon. Hopefully someone that has been on her already can answer that for you.

We stayed in 6206 on Horizon. Went out all the time when she was docked. Too windy otherwise & doors were locked when underway. Deck 7 is the same. PS Loved our cabin.

Here is a video of 9202 and the deck out front. This is an accessible cabin, but look at the map of 9203, two cabins down. It is made exactly like mine, but it is a regular cabin, as well as 9201. It was wonderful there, and not a lot of traffic.

Yes. The area of the ship all the way forward or 'secret decks' are open to the public on Horizon. Located on decks 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 14. I had a 4J cabin on deck 7of Vista (same deck plan as Horizon), and enjoyed the secret deck during sailaways. It's right under the bridge.

I have to ask how loud was the noise from the theatre/lounge below? Im sorry to say we didn't book 7th deck in time, so only 6204 is left 1 I'm thinkng no way due to noise from below! Please let me know your experience

No problem at all. We were on for the TA (Barcelona to NY) for 14 days. I love the "bumps" & we had some rough weather so I was happy.

I will post a few helpful hints tomorrow.

Quigonator, As promised here are a few tips that worked for us.

Even though the cabin was roomier than expected, storage was limited. Our vacation was 37 days long with 14 of those days on the Horizon. We had more stuff with us than usual. Only 1 closet for hanging & 1 with shelves, 3 drawers & the safe so wire hangars take up less room than the heavy wood ones. A pop up hamper would have helped "free-up" a drawer. I like it very dark at night so I bring a $ store plastic tablecloth to cover the window. Blue painters tape to affix it. Have fun!

We were in 6236, so a little ways down the hall from 6204, and one night around midnight, the music and bass from the theater was really loud. We could feel it in our cabin. It didn't bother us at all, just mentioning that we could hear and feel it from where we were!
