Cruising is expensive. I want to shadow someone who says it is not!

What is there to say... by bobbyjack

Sail Date: /
What is there to say about the Carnival Horizon? Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous! We loved just about every little thing about the ship. The cabin, the crew, all fabulous. Everything was new and shiny! We stayed in cabin 1294, a deluxe ocean view on deck one, there was no noise, it was mostly convenient to everything and our room steward, Arnold, was great. We love having the two bathrooms, even though there are only two of us. I like the mini bath with the tub, much better shower experience for ladies than a regular cabin shower. The bed was good and there was plenty of storage. The food was ok, we ate in the main dining room one night, one night at the Pig & Anchor, which was amazing, and the rest of the nights on the Lido. We love Guys Burgers and swirls... The casino was ok, we didn’t have any big winners, but it let us play (sorta). There was entertainment everywhere. So much to do, it was hard to decide. We enjoyed the sky ride and the water slides, with the blue one being SUPER fast. The slides are not just for kids, there were plenty of grown ups on those slides on our last day! This was a European cruise, so we scheduled a lot of Carnival Excursions, and each of them was very well run and organized. Embarkation and Debarkation were some of the quickest and painless we have experienced. So quick, so easy. The only negative was the speed of the elevators. So slow... probably, in the great scheme of things, it wasn’t terrible, but being on deck one, you are mostly reliant on them, so it was noticeable, especially in the busy times. So, if you are deciding to book the Horizon, DO IT! You will love every minute!

Ship is absolutely beautiful!! Really... by LauraJH7788

Sail Date: /
Ship is absolutely beautiful!! Really enjoyed the new color design - so different from the “Disney vomited” & “every other ship” colors! Well done, Carnival designers!! Crew was amazing, as usual. You could see and feel their excitement for the new ship, too! They work so hard and we appreciate everything they do to make sure we have a great vacation. Joner was our room steward and was outstanding!! Our cabin was 9451: an aft balcony. We appreciate everything he did and was definitely a key ingredient to making a wonderful vacation! Thank you! We only ate in the MDR once for dinner and once for Brunch. Food was good but there were so many other options to choose from and we took full advantage of them! We ate in the Steakhouse twice, Teppanyaki twice, Seafood Shack twice, Ji Ji Asian twice, Guy’s Pig & Anchor twice and Bonsai Sushi. It was all so delicious and so worth the additional cost!! Would definitely do them again. Only had one issue: we ordered appetizers at Guy’s P&A and they were served with our main course. The wait staff said that was how it is done and I disagreed with them. But food was still very good. Itinerary was spectacular! Wish Carnival would do Europe more often and to have itineraries in other areas outside of the Mediterranean, too. Enjoyed every port: Dubrovnik was our favorite. Had visited some of these ports on a B2B on Vista so really excited to get the chance to go back - especially Livorno, Rome and Sicily. I definitely would recommend everyone to try to do a Mediterranean cruise at least once! Weather was perfect! Had some rain in Livorno but can’t complain because the photos we took came out eerily fantastic! The water was only choppy the first day (close to Barcelona) and the last sea day going back to Barcelona. All the other days were like sailing on glass. Loved the ship ... loved the crew ... loved the specialty restaurants ... loved the ports ... loved our vacation!!

The newest ship on the... by boricua1

Sail Date: /
The newest ship on the fleet, Horizon, has different shops, while in Europe, there will be a tax added on jewelry, clothing and spa services, (Spain VAT). If you excede certain amount, you can claim, the VAT, at the airport with your receipts. Be sure to ask what qualifies. Outside stores didn’t charge me. Magnets and keychains are cheaper from the guys on the streets around plazas.

The theatre ‘Liquid Lounge’ is... by dlorimer

Sail Date: /
The theatre ‘Liquid Lounge’ is nowhere near big enough for the performances. With the live band on the stage, the performers have spill out in to the audience. The first 6/7 rows have to turn around to look over their shoulder to watch them. The pillars obstructed the views from several places. The guest entertainment was poor. The magician and the juggler would have been suitable for a kids party. The hypnotist spent more than half his act selecting his volunteers from the audience and putting them under. The entertainment around the ship didn’t hit the right note! Emma Jude, Buck & Oz, Keys & Stix were not great and often performed to just a handful of people. Crushed Velvet were very good and Eden in the Piano Bar was very talented and engaged very well with his audience. Plenty places to eat and a wide selection of food to choose from. Asian restaurant $15, (free on NCL) and free at lunch. Food in the MDR was generally good, but often not hot. The menu in MDR had around 8 appetisers, 8 main course and 6 desserts each evening. Plenty to choose from and included things you wouldn’t normally have such as frogs legs, oysters, lobster, snails, rabbit and even alligator! Balcony cabin, as expected, pretty standard but very small balcony. Horizon inaugural had a big fanfare and I loved it but I love cruising. Have been on better cruises.

Loved the 2nd deck. Did not notice the motion.

Mar 03, 2018

A small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages (i.e., sparkling water, sodas, juice, and milk) packaged in cans or cartons may be brought onboard on embarkation day and must be in the guest's carry-on luggage. A small quantity is a maximum of 12 sealed, unopened cans/cartons of 12 oz each per person.

Look at the maps in the elevator areas. It is a very big ship and a couple times I got caught headed to the wrong end of the ship. My fit bit was going crazy. Wear comfortable shoes.
