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 week! We also dined in the steakhouse. The food was superb, but the service was absolutely horrible. Also the casino was doing a promotion for all the heavy gamblers. Some of which were on a free cruise because of the amount they spent in the casino on previous cruises! There was absolutely NO NON-SMOKING areas in the casino. When you stepped off the elevator on deck 4 you could immediately smell the smoke coming from the casino. The atrium was the least spectacular of any ship I've cruised on. Decorated in very muted colors and It was only 3 stories high. Not at all majestic, nor were there any glass enclosed elevators. Disembarkation was unbelievably easy. We walked off with our luggage. There was NO customs agent present. We only had to glance into an iPad with facial recognition technology, and we were out the door! We will definitely NOT cruise on this ship again! Cheers! Read Less

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 health form which was ridiculous.Went to the Lido deck and had the first of many bad meals.Items most often on this deck were cold.The egg plat parmagane was to hard to cut with a knife. Dinner was supposed to be at 6pm, we were moved to 530 and put im the ATD . Day 1 and 2 sea days normal sea day activities. The CD (Donkie) and his group really did good job with activities Day 2 was elegant night. Food was cold as most nights Day 3 Grand Turk used to be one of my favorite ports. Now they have gooten rid of most of free chairs on beach and commercalized it. Spent thirty minutes there and left . Day 4 La Mona spent day a good bar in port and found a 2 qt Corana for 5 dollars. Had already been there three times so skipped the all inclusive Day 5 Curucoa ther from noon to 1030 did walk around shopping disticet and then took a tour of the Island It was great. Not a Carival Tour but went same places for less. Day 6 Aruba Walked to a publid beach. Been there several times befoe and enjoy it each time Day 7 and 8 Sea day normal activty The entertainment was good and bad, Had a couple of uncanned shows in Liguid lounge which were good. Group in Ocean Plaza was very good Horizon Wireless and the Hotspots. Cabin was a blacony. seemed like the balcony was larger that ships had two chairs and table comfortable there. Seems like the showers and rooms are smaller. Closet doors got in way of bathroom and hall door. Steward service was great. Dining was average. Many meals in the dining room were cold. Breakfast was cold every morning as the food was put out The ship was in good shape some things would go down like ice but would be fixed quickly. I would not take the Horizon again only because I did not like the layout of the ship and size. That is just a personal preference. If you like bigger ships it would be fine Returned on Sunday morning and was off ship as priority by 30. Friend who was not priority was off by 8. Easy and good debarkation and embarkation Read Less

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 past others dropping things and over all rude not Carnival fault. The room had 1 closet but plenty of draw space with large draws under sofa. Cleanliness of room was not what I would have expected and room attendant was very slow we got of the ship came back at 1:00 room was not done he offered that he could just give us towels, but then did call supervisor who apologized and room was done. Actually 2 days later when getting back on board room was significantly cleaner black stuff that had been on floor behind toilet had finally been cleaned never saw room attendant again so may have been replaced. Main dining my time able to get a table thru app never more than 10 minute wait food was mediocre service was slow. Buffet was confusing need to check if both areas open both areas to get full selection need to visit both areas and with crowded areas this can be challenging. Entertainment was ok it is Carnival that doesn’t generally have much that I have found appealing love and marriage show was mid day and standing room only didn’t stay comedy club generally required an hour of standing in line not what I want to do on vacation, and not great anyway. Casino (how I have comp) was small lacked machines lower than $2-$5 a spin. Premier host was nice as was his assistant felt bad one night took 1/2 hour to find player in casino for bull game. Regular host seemed new. Overall would not rush to go on horizon again. Not bad just not great and only have so much vacation time. Read Less
