Easy embarkation process, on the ship in 30 minutes top. Mess up on sail and sign cards! Switched my son and husband. After 2 trips to guest services they got it right.

Food and Dining

We have been on several cruises since they changed the Main Dining Room menu so we were very familiar however the taste and quality were outstanding on the Horizon. Great job to the chef and wait staff. Guys pig and anchor were yummy!

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin was great! Four of us and never felt crowded. Room Steward was WORST we have had in 12 cruises. Carnival needs to replace this guy. We actually had better results from 2 separate stewards that worked down the hall who checked on us and provided services.

Ship tip

Learn the elevator system it’s called a SMART elevator for a reason. Very cool system when used correctly.
