  3. Carnival Horizon
I have been on over 8 cruises with Royal, Norwegian, Disney and Carnival lines but by far this cruise has been my most unpleasant. I thought this ship being brand new would be great. Unfortunately it was not. It is a bigger ship but the shops, cafe's, and theater's are small. Not large enough to accommodate the guest on board. They had more cabins than entertainment facilities. There was always a wait for the activities from 30 to 60 minute wail. Very frustrating. They did offer diversity of activities but because the space for the activities were small only 2 to 4 persons at a time can use the activity. Hense the 30 to 60 minute wait for the activity. The food was mediocre nothing to write home about. Dinning room selection was a minimal and not a variety. Same items practically every night. More selection were at the buffet than at the sit down dinner. Cabins are a nice size. Larger than other inside cabins I've occupied. Cabin attendants were great. Dinning room waiters not so. Always a long wait to receive dinner you ordered. I do recommend if you do choose to cruise on this ship with family book your cabin on the 2nd deck. The Harbor View cabins. The accessibility to the Harbor View Lounge strictly for the Harbor View cabins was very accommodating. No need to run up to deck ten for an ice cream cone or juice and water all in the lounge. Overall I would not sail on the Horizon again. Had a better time on the Liberty and better food.

First displeased cruise with Carnival
