  3. Carnival Horizon
Cruising on Carnival use to have a touch of elegance...it does no more with the Horizon. Small walkways, small outdoor steps -enough for 1 way travel. Some board of suits somewhere decided it's all about the P/L. So sad to see Carnival going this direction. Outdoor pool area is small, the "grand" entrance area is small to capitalize on rooms above. The buffer areas have limited options and even the bacon is administered by staff who offer 2 pieces. Lol The staff is amazing. As for the adult pool areas only, well they announced on the ship that those areas are now open to all ages. As for my room...the beds are comfortable, the steward is awesome but could they not put a sound barrier between my room and the gym above it?!?! Honestly getting woken up at 6:30 am to the workouts of early risers really sucks. If you want to reserve your admiration for Carnival...do not go on this ship.

If you enjoy Carnival don't take this cruise.
