Carnival Horizon Cruise Review by LizzieA
- Sail Date: June 2018
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
the ship was new and beautiful. On this ship it would be easier to list what i did like instead of what i didn't- The rooms were nice slightly smaller, - j ust like everything else on board - SMALLER - the theatre 1/2 size, wasted space, lines winding around the ship to wait and see if you could get a seat 1/2 hour before showtime; 2 small pools for 4900 people and 1/2 the poolside chairs; very hard to find shade; a serenity deck to get away from all the kids with no way to cool off and wasted space;music blaring to suit only the NY guests - YUCH; did not seem to see many staff roaming and interacting like they "usually" do; lots of activities - always at the same time as dinner or another popular activity; no appropriate place to play bingo; and food - with lots of dining options; the food was good except in the dining room - no flavor and seemed like the meats were recycled. and lines everywhere!
The social director was their 1 saving grace. too much $ spent on looks and electronics; so disappointed.
In all fairness - Carnival seemed to try to appeal to the Generation Z crowd and in spite of Carnival's best attempts to appeal AND circumvent human nature - in spite of itsself, i have never seen such waste and selfish behavior from fellow passengers. i felt badly for the ship's staff at times. Seemed more like a party ship - the 'old' carnival image.
