Overall, a good time! Got a little bored on sea days, alot of time to relax though. Director was entertaining! Ship wasHUGEEE!! Met soo many great prople! Dinig room food and wait staff was awesome along with state room steward! Lido deck lunch and dinner veryyyy limited but lido deck brekfast was good. Favorite port was Jamaica! Soo much fun BOOK an excursion! Least favorite was mExico, Cozumel is more safe relax and family oriented so maybe book an excursion there for fun! Grand Cayman beach and water was stunning!!

Great Vacation with the family by deanetradesofho

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

The Horizon is a nice ship. Family Harbor rooms with the family lounge is wonderful for families with children. The Ocean Camp Director was fabulous. Water works is the best and kept children entertained for hours. We had a great trip. The food did not meet expectations compared to my other cruises. Lack of variety and quality on buffets and in dining room. Was the first cruise I got tired of eating the same food and felt hungry at times. I felt they were pushing you to all the restaurants on board which were extra dollars. Overall we had fun

Was fine, food was average, seemed to be a little short on staff. Needed to move comedy show to bigger theatre. Over all it’s what you make it. We had fun.

The Horizon is a great ship, made all the more better by Mike Pack. My main complaint is the buffet options and some of the specialty restaurants. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed our time on the ship!

Horizon, the highest bar for Carnival. (15+ cruises) by noskez23

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship is gorgeous and well maintained. Our only complaint is the bike on the top deck at the sports court was closed due to repair. Other than that we tried everything on the cruise at least once and couldn't have been happier. I have been on more than 15 cruises, RC & Carnival, and this is the best ship so far. A lot to see, always entertainment and I never had to set foot in the casino to pass time.

Horizon - Western Caribbean Family Cruise by kabrady19

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

We overall had a great time on the Horizon Cruise. I was a bit disappointed by the lack of shows/entertainment we could go to as a family. The Family Harbor lounge was wonderful, it was a great place to take a break and hang out on the couches, play games and watch movies. Food overall was good but we were a bit disappointed in the buffets. Pizza and Burgers were delicious.

Just keeps getting better by deezo17501

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

This was high on the list of my top cruises as I've now been on more than 15 total with different cruise lines but, I can truly say that Carnival tops them all for me and my wife. The food on the Horizon was something special and my Sister in-law whom is a very particular eater to say the least commented repeatedly about the taste and quality of the food. The only bad thing that I can say about the Horizon is that my cruise is over! Great ship, great staff and we are looking forward to being back on board this ship at some point in the future.

Enjoyed Carnival Horizon's celebration of their first New Year's Eve by ladyduffie

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed being on a new ship. However, I would encourage Horizon to give more attention to the Guest Services area as the lines are too long for extended periods of time. More staff is needed to man the area. Additionally, find a way to prevent people from holding lounge chairs they are not using. Keep up the good work related to embarkation and debarkation. I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly both were done. Even though we are not yet platinum (need 3 more cruises), we experienced no line for embarkation at 12p. While there was a line for debarkation, it moved right along.

Wonderful cruise on a beautiful ship! by Andrea8797

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

My extended family of 14 did this cruise over Christmas. We had been on a Carnival cruise a few years ago over Christmas and had been disappointed then at the lack of anything "Christmas-y" beyond a Santa visit on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. This time, there was a very nice midnight service with hymns and the Bible account read. Thanks, Carnival. The ship itself is beautiful. I've never cruised on Royal Caribbean, but that's the only line my sister uses. She said RC ships have a big central area that she really missed on this ship, but as I said, I didn't notice it as something missing. We actually never had trouble getting lounge chairs at the pool. Likewise, we could always find places for quiet reading on a deck or an outside table to play cards on. The food was great--some of the best we've ever had on a cruise. The staff was wonderful. We tend to cruise on Princess or Celebrity as all of our kids are grown and we aren't interested in being around a lot of children, but if you're considering this ship for a family cruise, I'd highly recommend it.
