Additional details

Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin: Balcony
Brunch in Main Dining Room
Rear Pool had smell of Diesel Smoke from funnel
Shower Curtain touching the Toilet, why in a brand new $800 million dollar
Smart Elevators no buttons

Okay, lets start off by saying the carnival horizon is getting a bad rep. It has had a string of unfortunate events happen, engine problems, crew member passing, skyride not working, and a port crash. Some of these are bad luck, some are unfortunate circumstance, and some are new ship issues. But don't let these things stop you from cruising on this fantastic ship. So, i am going to do this review in several parts. Pros and cons. And tips and suggestions.

Lets start with the Cons:

The main theater sightlines are terrible. The structure poles and low hanging lighting block the shows (so get there...early).

Cabin Review


Cabin 8C

Standard carnival cabin, but why on a $800 million dollar ship. No glass shower enclosure, no extra outlets by bed, and get rid of that toilet brush...ughhhh.

Port Reviews

New York (Manhattan)

The Cruise Port was excellent. Parking was easy, and getting on and off the Ship was the Fastest Ever...

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Took Tour, Pedro was excellent
