Just back from our 4 nights on the Sunrise. All in all a very good trip, It is a different crowd than what we are used to but everyone was having fun and very congenial. I would go again. Oddities included, there was a dead bird on our balcony when we got there, my husband called it in, about 20 minutes later 2 ladies came and took pictures and verified it was dead, (like we would make that ...

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 ...

We have not been on Carnival in many years, and I booked this because the date fit our needs and NCL didn't have anything with this exact date. This was the ship's 3rd trip out since Covid. The staff are still learning the ship, learning their jobs, but all were happy to be back. Masks were required and for the most part worn. We sometimes forgot to put them on when getting up from eating, but ...

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 ...

This is our first cruise since 2019 and so thrilled to be back. On this Horizon cruise, it was just my husband and I. We are Platinum so we have been on a decent amount of cruises. Check-in was easy. We had all our paperwork (passport, printed boarding pass, vaccination card, and negative COVID test results) so it took us less than a half-hour to board the Horizon. The Lyft driver dropped ...

We chose a 11am check in and arrived about 15 minutes before from our shuttle from the hotel. There was a minimal line - and we really didn't wait. The screener checked our passports, our vax cards and our negative tests and we were off and running! Through the xray machines - up the escalators - check in at the counter - make sure all is in order and onto the ship we go! It took less than 5 ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to Jamaica or Bimini. We have cruised with Carnival many times and I think this will be the last. Our cabin was selected by Carnival because we got a low rate deal. It was poorly selected. The ship was only 2 / 3rds full. 1800 passengers instead of 2900. But they placed us right behind the bridge, so we had zero privacy on our balcony or inside. ...

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 are a married couple, early 50’s from SD. We arrived in Miami the evening before our cruise, stayed at a airport hotel, Holiday Inn Express East (FYI-staying near the airport is a more ...

My husband and I Iove to cruise, couldn't wait to get back on a ship after the long drought due to COVID. We have been on 32 cruises. We cruise on Carnival, RCL, NCL, Princess, and Celebrity. We like them all. We took the Horizon out of Miami 7/18/21. Embarkation was fast and easy. There was a long line and everyone was wearing masks, no problem. It took 15 min. As soon as you get on the ship the ...
