Enjoyed it so much, already planning the next! Carnival Horizon is a new boat so we are planning on cruising the next new ship Mardi Gras in January of 2021

Flawless! This was my first cruise, and I’ve heard plenty of embarkation horror stories, we literally ran through the process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Was not fond of the Lido Deck buffet, however there were plenty of other options that were great! We actually went to 555, JiJi’s and Pig & Anchor beyond all the other options. I had pizza at 2AM several times which I enjoyed

Onboard Activities

One of the comedians was HILARIOUS, I actually attended his show two nights in a row

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Even though we were not traveling with children, we stayed in one of the Family Harbor cabins, and that was a great experience. If you’re traveling with children, Family Harbor is the ay to go. The private club which offered full breakfast and snack throughout the day was a plus

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The size of our cabin and balcony was slightly larger as we were positioned a corner cabin. There was a lot of storage space and room.

Ship tip

Use the Carnival Hub app for everything happening on the boat, especially daily dining options and menus

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

4 out of 5
We really didn’t spend much time at port. The locals constantly bothering you about your plans made the visit very unpleasant

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
We enjoyed the visit, however we should have researched more. We went to Seven Mile Beach as opposed to Downtown Grand Cayman

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Enjoyed the Cozumel visit also, but the same as Ocho Rios, too many locals asking about your plans gets to be annoying. Truly enjoyed some of the shops and the duty free


5 out of 5
Just as flawless as embarkation, we ran through.
