Fantastic shore excursions..... too many people!!!
"We will likely go with a different cruise line next time and definitely ask more questions about COVID policies and numbers of people on board.The desserts were good enough to stand in line for, but again, the same cakes were offered most days (6-day cruise)...."Read More

This is my first time on carnival and what a bad experience. I paid for premium internet which didn't work for a few days cause of satellite issues and then it was on/OFF the rest of the cruise. That's what guests service said.also the breakfast buffet was a joke who the hell serves pork and beans for breakfast plus very few items to choose from.the ship looked like no one kept up with it stains ...

We have booked an annual cruise on Carnival since 2010, and we recently completed Carnival's Exotic Southern Caribbean cruise which we had originally booked for June 2020. The ports, food, and entertainment were standard Carnival fare and were enjoyable. We especially enjoyed Bonaire, which offers superb snorkeling in many places right off of the beach. Aruba is also one of the best ports ...

This was my first time on Horizon and my first time taking a cruise in many years after notching several back in the early 2000’s. For my girlfriend it was her first, and since my hiatus was so extended it was essentially two first time cruisers. We had a great time overall and there were no truly glaring issues, just a few minor annoyances that I will detail below. This cruise was the standard ...

We went on this cruise with a group of ten people (5 couples.) The cruise was awesome. We had a balcony cabin. My husband really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. We enjoyed the pools. The Tides pool is a little quieter than the Resort pool, which is where they play music, play games and have a large big screen. Service was excellent in the dining room, bars and pool areas. Whether you eat at a ...

Terrible Ship Poorly Ran

I have been on about 10 cruises and while this ship is nice the design flaws and management are terrible. It was an ultra cruise targeting gamblers (which alot of them are). The Casino was 90 degrees and had no bathroom and no bar. If you wanted to get one of your "free drinks while playing in the casino" you had to hope the bar staff reached you before you passed out from the heat. My first ...

This ship was built for 3,960 guest. After boarding we found that 4,400 guest we on board. Long lines for food, entertainment, not enough lounge chairs and we were enroute to Aruba, for 2 days. After getting back from excursion there was no food. It was a hurry up and wait for anything the entire cruise. Over crowding in the limelight lounge for music and dancing was bad but the they ...

This cruise exceeded any of my wildest expectations. Treating yourself to the Havana Suite is well worth it to avoid the busy pools and crowded bars. Luis at the Havana Bar is the kindest, most welcoming presence to start your cruise experience. The Cheers package is well worth it if you plan on drinking 5 or more drinks a day (water bottles included!!!). Carnival Horizon has some of the best ...

This was supposed to be a beautiful destination wedding/family cruise. Thanks to Carnival Horizon, it was the most horrendous experience of our lives! From day one there were drunk, foul mouthed, noisy people running around the ship into the wee hours of the morning making it impossible to sleep. We were forced to get dressed and go directly to guest services to complain because no one would ...

Firstly I wanted to start off with all of the Atrium Bar staff as they were all outgoing and hospitable to the highest degree; Diana was ALWAYS there working so hard, I never once saw her not on her feet doing something to help guests or her colleagues. Nikola was super friendly, this man could talk to you all day and entertain for hours with endless stories. Maya always so helpful, she could read ...

We had done a 6 night cruise from Miami. This was my 10th Carnival cruise , my 2nd vista class ship and probably my favorite ship. Ship was very clean and the decor inside was much nicer than the new Mardi gras. Lines were long but moved very quickly. On the Vista there was a bar in the middle of the casino led spiral but not on this one. Crew was great but for some reason they didn’t “connect” ...
