Why did we choose this cruise? - We cruised the ABCs before and like it with Royal Caribbean and wanted to go again. - Itinerary ended up getting changed from Bonaire to Dominican Republic. For us that was fine, never been. The only problem was that the times at the different port was significantly reduced. Curacao was only til 3pm and La Romana didn't start until Noon and ended at ...

Our first carnival cruise and we were pleasantly surprised with the ship, cruise director and amenities/finishes. Western Caribbean itinerary was okay. We really enjoyed Curaçao and Amber Cove. Aruba and La Romana, DR we could have just as easily skipped that day. Very rough seas from Miami to Aruba. Then on way back to Miami again! Food was good, not great. As expected, due to occupancy on ...

We were on the Vista 3 years ago and this class ship is not our favorite but we enjoyed the Horizon. Our cabin was in a interior Havana. It was wonderful, convenient and we would book the same cabin if we were to sail on this ship again. We had anytime dining as we always choose now and food was very good except for one night. Service was also very good and the servers always friendly. We ...

We had an amazing time and the staff & crew went above and beyond. Everyone was so happy to see us and be back at cruising One issue was the problem with the Carnival app. I go on a cruise to unplug from tech and I do not have a smart phone, but the staff adapted and provided us with paper FunTimes, menus and excursions. Ketut (Stateroom Attendant) & his assistant were awesome. We ...

Just got back last Sunday from an 8 day trip on the Horizon (3/15). I have cruised on 35+ cruises and this was my least favorite. Embarkation was a breeze and there was no wait. We ate in the dining room 6 nights and not once was my meal satisfactory. The entree was always over cooked and dry. The main dining room service was excellent. We at Jiji's one night and it was the best meal of the ...

I’m a player. I usually cruise for free on RCL and Norwegian; however, I paid to be on this Carnival Horizon because I like where they go, and Carnival is a fun ship. But I am so disappointed with casino. FREE DRINKS only when you are sitting at the slots or table. You can’t go to the bar and order. You must wait forever for a waiter to take and then get you drink. There is a 15 drink ...

Choice this cruise as a group trip to try a new ship. Ship was fine but not too my liking. Plenty to do . Went to Ft. Lauderdale on Friday night . Drove to Miami on Sat morning and parked at Safe Cruise parking and took a shuttle to ship. Very could parking in enclosed garage. Quick shuttle to and from the port. Arrived at ship about 1030 and went directly onto the ship after filling out a ...

When getting to port embarkation went smoothly. Cabin was in the family harbour inside was concerned that there would be noise from children but this was a comp room so just happy to be on cruise, the noise was never a problem. The area that you can get a small meal or snack was very convenient. The staff was on top of making sure it was stocked only problem was older person on scooter was running ...

Airport Transfers - We began by utilizing an airport to cruise port (Fort Lauderdale to Miami Cruise port) for the first time and we are so very happy we did - Jiffy Jeff. The driver(s) and vehicle were great! Prompt pick-up on both the embarkation and debarkation sides. Much less expensive than Carnival and so much easier and convenient - I recommend them highly!! Cruise - We chose the ...
