Horizon vs Breeze

Recommended Posts

The last few days I've been scouring the internet for all things Carnival as I am in the midst of planning our honeymoon. I was pretty sold on Carnival Breeze but Carnival Horizon  is longer with an extra stop. I'd love to hear everyone's input on either ship or any of the stops listed. 

 

Carnival Breeze (6 days)

Out of Fort Lauderdale

November 1 2020

Nassau, Amber Cove and Grand Turk

Cloud 9 Spa Balcony

 

OR 

 

Carnival Horizon (8 days)

Out of Miami

October 31 2020

Aruba

Curacao

La Romana

Amber Cove

Cloud 9 Spa Oceanview

Damn that's a tough choice!

 

Maybe look into prices too - see if flights are cheaper to one airport or the other (unless you included that in the $400 you mentioned above). Maybe also look into excursions to see if anything jumps out at you.

 

I LOVED the Breeze..but also I loved Aruba and Curacao...and also Grand Turk lol.

Although I loved the Breeze (just sailed her March 2) I would definitely choose the 8 day itinerary! And the Horizon is a newer ship, so this is a no brainer. But if for some reason you choose the Breeze, you won’t be disappointed with that ship.

I'd do Horizon. Longer cruise, newer ship, and tougher ports to get to. I've been looking at the 6 day FLL route being done by Magic now and that cruise seems to be a dime a dozen.

We were most excited for Nassau and Grand Turk.

A lot of people don't like Nassau. I liked it. I went out on my own and got to do and see a lot without spending much money. I didn't even make it to paradise island. I'll be going back for that. Also want to go to Amber Cove. The cruise port area looks nice with the pools and water slides. And I want to do the waterfalls.

I’d say Horizon especially since it’s youre honeymoon. It usually takes us a day or two to totally relax and decompress so you’d have more time in relaxation mode with the Horizon itinerary.

The only good thing about Nassau is buying John Watling Rum

 

One of the many places I enjoyed visiting there.

Horizon.....8 days always trumps 6 days on somewhat similar ships.  I would also trade in the Cloud 9 Spa Ocean view for a Havana cabin in any format , which is either inside, lanai, aft balcony, corner aft or suite.  Edit....forgot to mention that Aruba and Curacao crush Nassau 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.

2 extra days, 1 extra port, ship with more to do, I'd choose the Horizon in a heartbeat. That itinerary would be an absolute blast! Not that I'm here to poo poo on the other one's itinerary. I've had great times at Nassau and Grand Turk. I would just give the edge to the other route.

soontobe, this is your honeymoon.  You can come back and do a very standard 6 day cruise anytime.  Take the Horizon 8 day run.  This is a special one.  Easy call.

I agree with what basically everyone has said and would go with Horizon based on the ports and extra days.  Now if the decision was strictly based on the ship, I would pick Breeze. I just did an 8 day cruise on Horizon and had a great time, but I still prefer Dream class ships over Vista class ships.

You'll have a great time either way, but the extra 2 days plus the itinerary make the Horizon an easy choice for me.
