We didn't make it to a show DJ performance. we went to the comedy club 3 nights and they were OK, could be better.(18+)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room stewards were excellent, always available and room was always well cleaned. We enjoyed the cruise director and entertainment staff. Some of the Meridian check in staff and waiters were crabby and short at times. Overall staff was excellent.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved this ship! It was always clean and easy to navigate. The only changes I could mention is the smoking section is in a terrible place. We hated having to walk through a cloud of smoke to go the buffet or pool area. Also putting the sale tables in a small walkway area and by the elevators is to congested.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was comfortable, always clean, and the amount of room was perfect. The only negative thing I could say would be the loud slamming of the balcony door and listening to others doors slamming.

Go on the Horizon!
