"We recently went on Carnival Horizon and I chose this ship because it looked like there was a lot to do. When we first got on the ship I missed the grand appearance of the atrium. It was beautiful but toned down. We..."Read More

ROOM - We had Stateroom 2450 in the Family Harbor section. We traveled with 2 adults and 3 kids. We could all fit nicely in the room. While a little crowded, I was surprised at how well we managed. Two beds drop from the ceiling and the couch is turned into a twin bed. The couch takes up no more space as a bed than a couch. There is plenty of closed space and desk space for all the random crap we ...

Embarkation: Embarkation was a breeze we did not have any priority embarkation and from arrival to port till the time we got on the ship was only about 30 min at 1pm in the afternoon which I would presume to be one of the busiest times. App: The Carnival Hub app is the best cruise line app i've seen it's extremely user friendly and I loved being able to request a table from anywhere on the ...

We chose this cruise because of dates, ports of call, and leaving from Miami. Getting to the cheap was slowed by traffic issues surrounding Super Bowl Weekend in Miami, but that was not the cruise company's fault. Perhaps a text warning to allow more time could have been helpful. We were early enough it ended up not affecting us, but some fellow passengers talked about the stress. The ship is ...

The ship is nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. Loved the sky ride. There was a worker named Milos who made our cruise more enjoyable. The rooms are nice as well. However the food on the buffet was mediocre. The breakfast was better than the dinner. I was totally disappointed with the desserts. Thought I was getting cake but instead the texture was a mixture between jello and pudding and ...

We were excited to sail on one of Carnival's newest ships but the maintenance issues and poor guest service left us extremely disappointed. First, we paid the additional fee for priority boarding. When we arrived to the port we were informed that priority boarding is only for the first passengers to board the ship and that it had ended at 10am. When we purchased priority boarding we were not ...

This was our 7th carnival cruise. Embarksion PRO: was smooth and quick. Headed up to the lido deck for lunch at Guys Burger until 1:30 when we had access to our cabin. CON: employees scanning were rude to folks not going quick enough and barking orders. Cabin PRO: typical layout of previous trips and room size with balcony. Liked the ability to control the thermostat! Beach ...

My wife and I decided to finally go on one of Carnival's newest ships and we loved it. We never felt like we were with 4,000 other cruisers. The layout of the ship makes it very accessible and easy to get around. Previously, we had been on four of the older ships with half as many passengers. We loved the 'Smart' elevators, just wish everyone would make an effort to use them properly but we ...

I just returned from a cruise on the Carnival Horizon and had an amazing time! It absolutely exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to book another! Embarkation can be hectic as you are carrying your luggage and the attendants want you to keep moving since, of course, there are so many people to board. Once you get on and get settled, its amazing! Public Areas: There are so many places ...

We chose this cruise because of the affordable price. Maybe you get what you pay for as we struggled a little with other guests at times. Too many drunks, so maybe folks spent their savings on the all you can drink plan. We saw a guy nearly throw up on the comedian and his buddy just stand up in the middle of the comedy show for no apparent reason. We saw a woman punch her boyfriend in the jaw ...
