Everyday a new towel image w/a clean room. I kept this one beside bed to hold my glasses each night.
Our last night we found this instead of animal and we received a thank you card when it's very obvious that should be the other way around. So grateful to all stateroom and ship personnel for making our experience one of the best.
Heading out for 1st of 2 elegant dinner evening with pictures.
Having fun had the opportunity to  roll my own cigar with local cigar maker. Tour of Amber Cove, Dominican Republic
Favorite taxi driver in our families own personal tour guide in Port on island of amber Cove, DR

This super awesome family vacation was more than I could have hoped for. Thanks first off to our personal stateroom person whom I'm so sad to say I can't remember her name for stateroom. She was super awesome always attentative to needs of my husband and I. Thanks for the extra pillows much needed for my back and neck pain. My absolute super favorite IWayn our nightly cocktail waiter in Meridian Restaurant the collections of shots and shot glasses our family received. From day 1 to day 8 thanks for never missing a beat with your upbeat attitude we are super grateful. The entire ships cast of employees made the trip so worth every moment. Service was impeccable. Thanks to the over 1 thousand employees working 6 months straight without a day off and still finding strength to make our experience the greatest. Many Blessings and prosperity to each and every one you. Thank you Carnival Horizon

Cabin Review

Cabin was great for price the king size bed was awesome, I will opt for special assistance room next time as the step up and down drop from bathroom was extremely difficult for my already depleting joints and muscles. The cabin was great ortherwise.

Port Reviews


Port was beautiful the personal taxi we got Edward for our family, was not so good at all. He showed us a picture of his taxi which was clearly a new Toyota van but took us to the retired mystery machine of van he promised the air worked he had just started car but it did not so we asked to go straight to beach and skip tour of which he refused to listen and took us on a 2hour tour in a scorching hot vehicle and then wanted to fight us because we didn't want ride back to ship with him even though 5 of the 7 people paid him the $40/person he charged w/o argument.


Beautiful Ms. Elsie our personal taxi and tour guide patiently stopped us a local wine and spirts store, took us on tour while stoping for some great photo ops before taking us to beach and food stops and back to Port. 5 stars for her for sure.

La Romana (Casa de Campo)

So very hot very pretty but a blur, I just remember beautiful beaches super hot high prices.

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

My absolute favorite guide, places, beach was a bit rocky but people were amazing as well as the view.
