  3. Carnival Horizon
I am a seasoned cruiser (40+) with diamond status on ccl.Being new the ship was in nice shape. Signage should be better in public areas, such as location of restrooms,beverage stations,&fore&aft. My interior cabin on deck8 was fine,however I still can not understand why they do not provide a chair that has a back on it. I did not attend any shows but the entertainment in the various bars was outstanding ,probably the all around best I have enjoyed on any ccl cruise. Food was average. Why cant they serve real orange juice at the buffet instead of orange cocktail? CCL has enough ships sailing from fl. you would think they would serve a real fl. product. I had been to the ports numerous times&only took a tour in st.kitts which was well worth it even though the windows on the van were too small.Embarkation was delayed by an hour due to the prior voyage having an unexplained late debarkation.My debarkation was fine&it seemed I passed thru customs in record time. The strongest asset of CCL has always been the friendliness of the staff & this staff met (already high )expectations. NOW FOR THE NEGATIVE.I do not take cruises to watch tv,but in the past we always had access to the major networks which would let me watch my NFL games in my room if I so chose.I love my beer&football but sitting in the sports bar from 1 till 11 is abit excessive. This also caused overcrowding in the bar because somany chairs were occupied by non drinkers CCL PLEASE FIX.Also there were many upset patrons who could not watch the SEC championship game.NO MORE CCL CRUISES FOR ME DURING FOOTBALL SEASON.
