Food better than I remembered but less atmosphere than I remembered!

Carnival Horizon Cruise Review by Sv1107

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2020
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Places smaller than normal:

-Small buffet with the same options especially at lunch not a lot of fruit, cheese, etc. Fortunately omelet station presents.

-Casino

-Guest service (which we didn't need except for the transfer and it went well)

"Negative"

-No real permanent bar in the nightclub so a Bloody Ceasar for example the barmaid had to go get him at the casino bar, at least she went there and didn't tell me sorry we don't have one.

-Make the room once a day asks us to decide if am or pm

-Limited to 15 alcoholic drinks per day (some exceeded it every day and was still straight)

-Sushi disappointing if I compare to normally

Positive

-Ambience

-Application on the cell that says everything that happens and the wait for dinner (it takes a day of adaptation but when it's done you could go back)

-Location of our cabins 11254 and 11252

-Staff (except a few at the casino)

-8 nights 4 stopovers

-Have access for lunch to the à la carte restaurant, lots of choice (Italian, Japanese, Mexican, buffet, pizza, salad ...)

-Imax, skyride, sliding activities, etc.

-The fastest boat ever seen on the 1st day

Undecided: the elevators are grouped by letter if you want to go to the 11th it gives you an example of the letter W so you have to wait for this elevator

Modern and simple boat with atmosphere. Someone who likes Royal carribean, princess, celebrity, will probably find it too easy. NCL remains my favorite company. I will probably do a cruise with Carnival again in the future, like the new Mardi Gras for example.

Very pleasant and different Alchemy bar!
