  3. Carnival Horizon
We go in at least one cruise a year and have cruised with RCI, NCL, Disney, P&O and TUI in the past. Everything about Carnival came bottom of our list compared to the others. Food - hardly any choice, cold all Asian style food. Cabins- smallest we have ever stayed in. Wardrobe was only sufficient for 1 person. Air con didn’t work properly. There was drilling and banging going on all through the night. We were given a spa voucher as compensation for this. But when we went to book they didn’t have hardly any of the things on the price list. Staff were so rude and up themselves we walked out. Entertainment- great if you like butlins style acts Everything was so expensive on board then when they add tax and gratuities on it’s half the price back at home. There is a sweet shop on board our girls went and got a pick a mix then they added a gratuity on for the staff who had just stood and watched the kids serve themselves. You had to pay to go to the cinema. Nothing seemed to be included. Never had any complaints about any of our other cruises and am not usually one for moaning but couldn’t wait to get home.

1st and last cruise with carnival
