Good Ports, Mostly Friendly Employees, Overall Another Good Cruise, But Some Issues Persist
"Salad bar was good and their deli was right there as well if I wanted a sandwich hot or cold.Unlike other hot tubs on ships, since this is a semi-private area and enforced by Carnival, I was able to find room in the hot tubs whenever I wanted and my wife could find a chair that she wanted...."Read More

Worst cruise we have ever been on. Food is terrible. Worse food I have ever had. Their soda package is terrible. You have to wait at the bars to get a can of soda - sometimes took upwards of 30 mins. Only decent place to get food was at the burger place and the wait there could be upwards of 40+ minutes. Many activities closed very early (8 pm) so not a whole lot to do after hours unless you ...

Me and my family a group of 6 decided to take this cruise for the second time as 6 years ago we had an amazing time. Well, this time around it’s incredible how in a 6 year turn around, this has been terrible. The food was terrible. The lobster was horrible as it wasn’t well cooked. The steak was more fat then steak. The spaghetti was hard and this was only the restaurant for dinner time. For ...

Me and my family loved the ship itself. So much for both the kids and the adults to do! But, the food didn’t taste that great. I’ve cruised with carnival many times before and the food has never tasted this bad. Step up your game carnival we know what you’re capable of!!! If you want your next time cruisers to have a 10/10 experience, I’d suggest upping up the food game and making sure the ...

TL/DR: Enjoyable week on Carnival Horizon, with pros being cruise director, Paradise Beach Club, Production shows, and free food; Cons: buffet food, MDR food, and guests can get rowdy/loud/rude, especially as the week goes on. My wife, daughter and friend (all adults) went on the 6 night Western Caribbean sailing on Horizon out of Miami in March. Overall, we enjoyed the cruise, but left the ...

We just got off the Carnival Horizon and wanted to share some of our experiences…. The lively ambiance was contagious and the guests and crew seemed happy to be on the ship. Our room was clean and comfortable and evidently, bigger than interior rooms on other cruise ships. The entire ship was new and clean and well maintained. The majority of the workers seemed happy to be on the cruise and ...

We enjoyed this cruise so much. This was our 23rd wedding anniversary celebration and trip. When I say that the staff on-board the Horizon not only greet you with a smile, but they also make sure you feel like family and valued guest. From the time we boarded we were asked several questions regarding our diet restrictions and food allergy. They made sure no incidents were going to happen on this ...

We chose this particular cruise based on the itinerary. Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao were three islands that we hadn't visited together before, only Aruba & Curacao on a previous Carnival Cruise. Embarkation was a breeze but disembarkation was not and we our luggage was not where the signage said it would be when we went to look for it. We were part of group 22 for disembarkation which meant our ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my very first cruise and I must say that this was the best thing I could have done in my whole life. Don't get me wrong I can swim but I was so against being on what I consider a little boat in a giant pool of water with no bottom. All of that went out the window. I found the staff to be the most helpful, the eateries were great, and the drinks were to die for. But, to add to the extra ...

I chose Carnival Horizon as it offered a good itinerary, was decently new (launched 2017), and was overall good value for the money. Bought ticket on Costco Travel in March and started getting ready from that time on. Some helpful youtube channels were cruise news (e.g. Cruise Radio, The Travel Scouts) and tips from cruisers (e.g. Tips for Travellers, Life Well Cruised). *note: all monetary ...

Carnival wasn’t advised that covid was over, except for the barely edible food they put out at the Buffett- Service is slow and uncaring- room service did not get it right once- dirty tissues left under my bed from the previous passenger- if it wasn’t going to cost us over $1000 to jump on a plane in Punta Cana and get home we would be long gone!. I was gifted a massage which was close to ...
