First Covid Impacted Cruise, First time on Carnival
"Based on our experience with Royal, we thought this dinning was subpar.- We cruised the ABCs before and like it with Royal Caribbean and wanted to go again...."Read More

Only good thing was the cruise director, "Donkey"

We chose this cruise because we had never been to the ABC Islands. We got a really good price. The food was nothing to write home about. It was pretty well organized. Our cabin was not fully cleaned when we got there. Debarkation process took a long time. We had to wait in lines a long time. The cruise director, Donkey, was fabulous. He wants to go to Alaska but he was told he was too high energy ...

We chose Carnival because of the good deals and the destinations of Grand Cayman and Cozumel Mexico. We had a fantastic time snorkeling in both locations, once off a boat and once from the shore. We also enjoyed climbing a waterfall in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. These shore excursions were the highlight of the trip and the reason we came. We also assumed that they were meeting COVID requirements and that ...

Don't know where to start. The food was horrible,and I don't mean bad, it was horrible. Most of the time it was cold and the selection was just as bad...the hot tubs were warm,not hot just warm. My bath water is warmer that the hot tubs. The drink selection was terrible, they had lemonade and tea. The tea tasted stale. The lemonade was so tart that my face puckered up and I looked like a fish... ...

Entertainment was poor. They had only one good singer, dancers only performed the first night. Then they had Spanish Music the following 2-3 shows, singers only. Then a vintage pop that was terrible and I think you get the point. Your Cruise Director is “Donkey” and did he live out his name and reputation! Worst cruise Director EVER!!! During your dinner, expect serious delays. Plan on a ...

The Carnival product has drastically changed since Covid. Diamond members no longer receive the same benefits as before...Carnival has decreased amenities while other cruise lines have increased amenities for their most loyal guests. the Horizon was supposed to be Wheelchair friendly, but elevators did not work for wheelchair users, the doors to the cabin locked out the automatic door ...

My husband booked this cruise for our son’s Spring Break. I have been on numerous cruises before, but it was his first cruise so he was very excited to experience it. We went to the Dominican Republic, Grand Turk, and the Bahamas, and had a magical time zip-lining, horseback riding, shopping, and swimming with sharks. The excursions were perfectly executed and made the experience feel safe and ...

As Platinum members being on 15 previous Carnival Cruise this was the most disappointing cruise we have taken with Carnival...The ship itself is gorgeous and very clean and this was our second cruise on the Horizon as we were on its last before Covid hit in March 2020.The 2020 Horizon cruise was excellent in all areas...This cruise was lacking in so so many area's.First of all Food service... Our ...

We picked this cruise due to price and destinations. We had not been to the Dominican Republic and the timing of this cruise worked well. We had studied reviews of this ship and felt it would be a good experience. We were interested in knowing if we were required to wear masks and how Covid requirements affected cruising. This is our 14th cruise and we have cruised on NCL, Royal, Celebrity, ...

My husband and I have been Carnival cruisers for years and are both Platinum members. We decided to take the plunge and booked a Thanksgiving cruise...after almost 2 years of not cruising. We could not have been happier! Ship is very nice and the crew worked super hard to always keep it extra clean and wiped down. We chose not to take any excursions this time and we just got off the ship and ...
