Review summary

Had a great 8 day cruise, weather was beautiful. Horizon is a great ship, just have to be patient with the elevators some times. Not a fan of the theater seating, like the sests on the Breeze better. More comfortable. If your lucky enough to hqve Schwartz as your CD, you will love him!!

Schwartz as the CD is the best thing, he's amazing. Rueso the bartender was the 1st bartender in over 20 cruises who knew my name and my drink when I walked up to him.

We always get the interior bunk bed style rooms. Reasons are, cheaper, more room in the room, and your never in the room, so why pay more.

Ship tip

We went to Margaritaville, didnt feel like paying $40 for 2 chairs!! Still a beautiful island, just to expensive to lay on a beach!

San Juan, Puerto Rico
