Carnival Horizon Cruise Review by nybumpkin
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Havana Premium Vista Balcony
Our cabin itself was okay - it was an aft wrap, but I liked the aft wraps on Victory and Glory better. They were larger and had nicer balconies.The real benefit to this cabin was Havana access.
Entertainment was very good. The comedians' shows were good (although I don't like the Limelight Lounge very much - the sight lines are awful). All of the music was very good and there were lots of venues to enjoy. I saw a couple of shows in the Liquid Lounge and while the shows were good, the Lounge tsself is not great - like Limelight Lounge, poor sight lines.
All of our food was good, We had al dinners in the main dining room, early seating. Great wait staff. we ended up not having any dinners at the specialty restaraunts. However, we enjoyed lunch at the Mongolian wok one day and I had the Seafood Shack's fried clams another. We also tried the BBQ buffet one day and enjoyed it, and I had a Guy's burger twice. My choice is a Plain Jane with cheese and then topped with bacon and mushrooms fro the toppings bar.
Sons spent a lot of tie on the sports deck; both did the Sky Ride and enjoyed it.
I love the outer areas available on this class of ship - if I wanted to be somewhere other than our balcony or in the Havana area, you could usualy find me outside on deck 5, the Lanai.
I'd sal Horizon in a heartbeat. Despite the number of passengers I never felt crowded and never had to wait in line for the buffet.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)We did an independent tour with Amber Cove Adventures to ride the Teleferico and then visit Puerto Plata. I'm not a big fan of the cruise ship "artificial" ports and like to go outside the port area, and this tour did not disappoint.View All 709 Amber Cove (Puerto Plata) Cruise Port Reviews

Grand TurkThis was our fifth time visiting Grand Turk. We don't stay at the beach at Margariatville as we find it too crowded and the water isn't nearly as nice as it is farther down the beach. We walk down to Jack's Shack, about a 15 minute walk. Much better swimming and Jack and Janet pour a mean rum punch.View All 2,098 Grand Turk Cruise Port Reviews

New York (Manhattan)There's nothing like sailing fro New York. It's the best sailawaty we've experienced. Depending on your sailing time, you ight want to thing about a later dinner - it takes about an hour to go uder the Verrazzano Bridge.View All 1,008 New York (Manhattan) Cruise Port Reviews
