TransAtlantic Cruise on the Horizon

Carnival Horizon Cruise Review by Grandma Cartwright

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

This was our first time to go to Europe and to sail across the Atlantic. We really enjoyed all the ports in Europe and then the sea days on the ship. There is so much to do and loved all the food options available on this new ship. The Cruise Director, Mike Pack was the best cruise director that we have ever sailed with and we have been cruising since 1990. The entire crew was so helpful and this was one of the best cruises we have had, Along with the 4 ports we stopped at in Europe, we also visited Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and this was a great experience. We then sailed into New York Harbor and we docked next to the Intrepid so that was exciting. We sailed right by the Statue of Liberty as we came into New York and that is an experience that we will never forget. This cruise ranks as one of the best that we have ever sailed on

Cabin Review


A very nice Balcony Cabin which we enjoyed very much. The weather was not the best but we were still able to utilize the balcony at times. it is important to us to have a balcony and the private outdoor space it gives us.

Loved the River tour where we learned about the history of the area and the bus tour through the city, The tile work on the walls and plazas is fantastic and was so worth the money.

Bus tour that took us across the border into Portugal for a tour of that area as well as the City of Lisbon. So much history there which we were very interested in.

This was our favorite port. The people were so friendly and we learned so much about the area. At the Titanic Cemetery we even found the grave of one of my husband relatives. He was a young steward on the Titanic and we knew that he had perished but did not know that his body was one of those recovered, identified and buried there. So many of the recovered bodies were not identified and were buried with just a number. Peggy's Cove was very interesting and we were able to get our passports stamped there.
