Carnival Horizon Cruise Review by Zulu175

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

As a family of 4 who had never been on a cruise we decided to start with this new ship for 7 days around the Med.

Getting on and off the ship was something I was concerned about but thought this was done well.

The Cabin was fine with two showers and bunks for the kids. Beds comfortable. For a new ship the Air Con was average and we had to ask for it to fixed which helped somewhat.

We tended to pay for the speciality restaurants ( which were well worth the money) as the general dining was average at best.

Casino was good with great staff.

Very good gym

A bit of a grizzle was the bar service. Yes, it might be cool to try and serve 3 or 4 customers at once but it would be far better to do one at a time get the orders right and not have annoyed customers being served out of turn.

The staff in the bars and restaurants need training. You don't take a customers plate when he is still eating with the fork in his hand!!

The up selling of everything and added gratuities does get a little tiresome.

Foe a first cruise it was fine but would I come back....not sure
