I cant say enough about this cruise. It was amazing. So much food. The ship is so big that we still havent gone to all the restaurants. The staff took pride in their jobs and was always present when ever you needed them.

Review summary

We were looking forward to cruising on Carnival Horizon for almost a year. This was my best cruise so far. The new clean ship, the staff from the room attendant , waiters and Fun squad all made our vacation a memorable one. Elevator system i liked . Didnt stop a every floor. Our cabin was on the nineth floor which was comfortable and rhe balcony was nice. I fell asleep on he chair just sailing along. Watched the best sunset sailing back from Mexico. Amaxing memory. Overall the best cruise ever so far. Just felt comfortable. And no bumpy seas. Just smooth.

We did the Punchliner Conedy club twice. Cee Jay Jones was so funny.

Carnival Seaside Theater

5 out of 5

This just such a great experience. We watched A Star Is Born andthe NBA playoffs between the Warriors and my home team the Toronto Raptors. I was so glad it was showing. Maybe i was the only Canadian on board but it felt great and they won. The only issue we had was the popcorn on movie night was not good. Dry no butter and was just awful. Sorry. But overall sailing and watching a movie in the middle of the ocean/ Carribbean Sea . Fabulos.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is much bigger than my last cruise . Whichbis understandable. Its a brand new ship. They laybout was great and the elevator system also easy to use. We had to lookbon the map and figure out if we needed to be in aft or fwd. But once we got the hang of it it was easly nagivated. Areas were so clean. Bathrooms were mainted well. Very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had 3 adults and my 11 year old daughter . Who had the bunk whick pulled out of the ceiling. Amazing. She aws happy. The twin beds were so comfortable. . We did not feel cramped. Room was spotless.

Ship tip

My advice is its a huge ship . Lots of walking and takes a little time to navigate. So plan your days. What to do after the day at port and do something different each night. From Liquid lounge to Punchliner club. And experience the speciality restaurants. Food was amazing. Cant wait to return.

Ports of call

A different experience. Since i am Canadian had to go in a different line. And we were not in a rush so we got tags for later disembarkment. No rush. Overall smooth.
