Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Family Harbor Interior

When getting to port embarkation went smoothly. Cabin was in the family harbour inside was concerned that there would be noise from children but this was a comp room so just happy to be on cruise, the noise was never a problem. The area that you can get a small meal or snack was very convenient. The staff was on top of making sure it was stocked only problem was older person on scooter was running past others dropping things and over all rude not Carnival fault. The room had 1 closet but plenty of draw space with large draws under sofa. Cleanliness of room was not what I would have expected and room attendant was very slow we got of the ship came back at 1:00 room was not done he offered that he could just give us towels, but then did call supervisor who apologized and room was done. Actually 2 days later when getting back on board room was significantly cleaner black stuff that had been on floor behind toilet had finally been cleaned never saw room attendant again so may have been replaced. Main dining my time able to get a table thru app never more than 10 minute wait food was mediocre service was slow. Buffet was confusing need to check if both areas open both areas to get full selection need to visit both areas and with crowded areas this can be challenging. Entertainment was ok it is Carnival that doesn’t generally have much that I have found appealing love and marriage show was mid day and standing room only didn’t stay comedy club generally required an hour of standing in line not what I want to do on vacation, and not great anyway. Casino (how I have comp) was small lacked machines lower than $2-$5 a spin. Premier host was nice as was his assistant felt bad one night took 1/2 hour to find player in casino for bull game. Regular host seemed new. Overall would not rush to go on horizon again. Not bad just not great and only have so much vacation time.

Cabin Review

Family Harbor Interior

Room was nice was plenty of draw space had robes and what is needed in room. Could have been cleaner and thought with all the virus going around would have been above average but was not.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Just went to beach right by ship have to pay for chairs and umbrella if not the “green” ones have read multiple reviews that say they are all free this is not true even checked with security.

Bus ride from port to small speed boat tour guide was informative. Boat ride a bit bumpy but fine. Problem was all inclusive open bar included rum and choice of cola or lemon lime soda. I realize many trips include rum punch but when it says open bar didnt think this would be only choice would not have chosen For same price other options would have been better. Also went to excursions desk before booking and asked but was miss informed.when returning went to desk to let them know so they could help others in the future they seemed uninterested. The beach was nice palm trees for shade

Left the ship and looked for taxi to Arashi beach we were very happy with this guide he stopped at store so we and others could by drinks to bring to beach he came back at requested time. He told us much about the island and gave us a little tour on way back to ship. The beach was beautiful not overly crowded there are free shade areas but we choose to rent 2 chairs and umbrella $37.
