Carnivals latest ship makes its way to the US by sglagow

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Horizon will be a great ship for a weeks getaway in the Carribian or Europe’. On the transatlantic there was little to do during the day except trivia games and spending money on movies, gambling, drinking or thrill rides. Evening entertainment was too similiar although the production shows were brilliant. The theatre is too small for the ship and if you don’t get there at Least 30 minutes early you will struggle to get a decent seat.

First Time With Carnival in 10 Years by CruisingKG

The down side was not always having good entertainment. Some nights it was very limited for options. Other nights were great with a lot of options. Cruise director (Mike Pack) was fabulous!

A Great time! by lyndalou2400

Not enough activites for singles. I thought there would be more. Or at least notify us of activities. I completely missed the first activity because I was unaware of it. Would have been nice to meet others at the beginning of the cruise.

Worth whikle by Perl

Very glad I did this trip. Somewhat disappointed with Carnival and the lack of making a bigger deal out of the fact that it was the maiden voyage with passengers.

Carnival Horizon transatlantic inaugural cruising season by robertc717

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship seemed like it was not finished yet. Crews working fearlessly on it the whole cruise. No air conditioning in are room . When reported no one came that I could see . The rear of the ships smelled like raw sewage. Not always but it was there. The photo people were unorganized and lost or misplaced are photos . We got them two days later. Over all the ship is beautiful and the cruise director is quite a personality and is awesomely great

Best Cruise Experience Ever by RobinWig

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was my 25th cruise in 7-1/2 years and this ship was absolutely my favorite. Great free food options to include Guy’s Burgers & Fries - outstanding! I never order hamburgers but had to try them to see what all of the hype was and ended up eating them at least 7 times!❤️; Guy’s Pig & Anchor for lunch; SeaDay Bruch; Pasta Bar for lunch; 24 hour pizza, ice cream and room service; afternoon tea on sea days in addition to the main dining rooms and buffet on the Lido deck! Entertainment from 3D virtual reality rides; IMAX Theater; Movies under the Stars; Dr Suess water park; sky ride; Shows nightly in the theatre and comedy club as well as all sorts of music about the ship; trivia, etc!

Great ship, crew, and itinerary.... by jayfrontera

Sail Date: /

Great ship, crew, and itinerary. Again the only issue I have is that smokers feel they must imprint themselves and there stink everywhere they can with no regard for others.

This was our first Carnival... by stons11

Sail Date: /

This was our first Carnival Cruise and we honestly probably won’t be booking anymore, anytime soon. We had to change cabins from our 6th floor balcony because the first one had an adjoining door with absolutely no sound proofing and unfortunately our neighbors liked to stay up all night talking. Talking at a normal range but through the door we could hear the conversation verbatim. We’ve been on many other Royal Caribbean cruises with adjoining doors and have not heard a peep. Even the guest service person said she really wished they would have corrected that from the Vista. The guest service staff was amazing and moved us to a 2nd floor balcony room without an adjoining door however we ran into another problem, DJJazzy’s bass in the main atrium shook our room every night. Totally understand for Carnival to blare the music on a Caribbean party ship but this was a very busy European cruise with many early morning port arrivals and tours that started at 8am. We also had to deal with a sewer gas smell in the room we were moved to. That took 3 days to get fixed and couldn’t be in our room without the balcony door open. The my-time dining room was a complete joke. Wait 20 minutes for a table for 2 and then you get seated and your table is 2 inches from another table for 2, and the same the thing on the other side of your table. We generally have enjoyed other cruise lines but thought the itinerary was so amazing we gave it a try. Europe was so amazing and after awhile my husband and I just started to joke about everything we had to deal with on the new Horizon ship. Hopefully they can workout the kinks.

Great cruise and destinations. The food in the main dining and lido left a lot to be desired (wasn't what we usually see on a Carnivalcruise. Outside of that the staff was amazing, the ship was beautiful, and our first Europe experience was great!!! by JerseyShotgirl

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Love Carnival but hoping for a new type of cruise with unique ports. This ship is gorgeous and easy to maneuver around. Love our cove balcony but was a little loud from the third floor atrium area.

Magnificent Mediterranean by nmcallaster

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We made our reservations when the booking dates came out. We looked forward to this cruise for almost a year and a half and were not disappointed. Barcelona is an amazing city for a Port. The Horizon is beautiful and the staff the best! We had a couple beautiful days at sea as well as some amazing ports.

Worst customer service on any Carnival ship. Untrained Staff by CAlady

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

This my first cruise review after over 100 days on carnival cruises, it was not a good experience. The ports are fine, the ship is new but staff is not good and food is horrible. Same old crappy food and worse service. Further, room service was previously free, now they charge AND they charge extra for delivery from 10 pm-6 am. They are being cheap every way they can (less soap, untrained staff etc). The steakhouse is not as good as other ships even though it’s new, they changed the menu and took off popular items! More pay extra restaurants and worse food in free restaurants. The worst customer service in dining room and state rooms out of any cruise we’ve ever taken. Sea day brunch arrived an hour after ordering and my husband already had to leave so I dined alone. The people next to me got their salad after their meal and when they asked why, waitress said it’s because their main meal took up the table ie waitress did not understand that a “starter” comes before the meal. Total joke. The senior Maitre d is a sarcastic and unhelpful man. Wait staff continuously delivered wrong meals (and cold food) to several people in our party. Our room cleaning person forgot to clean our room and stated he thought we said not to. Ugh.I’ve never written a cruise review but wanted the let others know that carnival staff definitely does not have it together yet on this ship. I can say only 1 positive thing, their new elevators are great. Computerized and more efficient in managing crowds.
