My husband and I have been Carnival cruisers for years and are both Platinum members. We decided to take the plunge and booked a Thanksgiving cruise...after almost 2 years of not cruising. We could not have been happier! Ship is very nice and the crew worked super hard to always keep it extra clean and wiped down. We chose not to take any excursions this time and we just got off the ship and ...

We picked this cruise due to price and destinations. We had not been to the Dominican Republic and the timing of this cruise worked well. We had studied reviews of this ship and felt it would be a good experience. We were interested in knowing if we were required to wear masks and how Covid requirements affected cruising. This is our 14th cruise and we have cruised on NCL, Royal, Celebrity, ...

This is our first cruise since 2019 and so thrilled to be back. On this Horizon cruise, it was just my husband and I. We are Platinum so we have been on a decent amount of cruises. Check-in was easy. We had all our paperwork (passport, printed boarding pass, vaccination card, and negative COVID test results) so it took us less than a half-hour to board the Horizon. The Lyft driver dropped ...

Review of the Carnival Horizon Cruise, departing Port of Miami on 8/1/21. We visited Amber Cove, Dominican Republic, Half Moon Cay, & Bimini, Bahamas. This was our 30th cruise, 13th Carnival sailing. We are a married couple, early 50’s from SD. We arrived in Miami the evening before our cruise, stayed at a airport hotel, Holiday Inn Express East (FYI-staying near the airport is a more ...

My husband and I Iove to cruise, couldn't wait to get back on a ship after the long drought due to COVID. We have been on 32 cruises. We cruise on Carnival, RCL, NCL, Princess, and Celebrity. We like them all. We took the Horizon out of Miami 7/18/21. Embarkation was fast and easy. There was a long line and everyone was wearing masks, no problem. It took 15 min. As soon as you get on the ship the ...

We decided to take a Christmas cruise. It was a nightmare. 12&13 year old knocking on doors in the night n running away. Water dripping from the ceiling in the dining area. Food n dishes left every where. Children breaking glasses at the dinner table. While the parents sat at another table. The staff didn’t look happy to be working. We waited at dinner for 10 minutes and no one never came over to ...

Embarkation went smoothly, since it started raining they ushered everyone in and really had the lines moving. Almost too fast, i felt rushed going throygh security with many crew members pointing for you to this way and that. Once on board we immediately went to eat brunch sisnce we hadnt eaten yet. Food was good, Guy Burger's was all that I yhought it to be and some!! Our luggage arrived ...

The ship is nice. Crew members are very nice and pleasant. Cabin was well maintained. We have a clog in the washing sink and it was fixed quickly after reporting to the staff. Dinning and activities all met expectations. We mainly use the main dining room as a sit down and order style are more suitable for us. Dress codes seems to be a general guideline as they are not enforced. Activities are ...

Horizon was great! Our handicap room, 10205, was excellent. The room was very large, and I could use the scooter everywhere. Even though it is listed as an interior room, the room has an slightly obstructive ocean view size window, and a great view. All the staff were fantastic when dealing with handicap people... from the people helping to board, to the time we left! I was thrilled about that, ...

First the great. Embarkation was a breeze. We (my wife, daughter and her companion) arrived at our allotted time and we were on the ship within 10-15 minutes. It was the best embarkation experience of our 19 cruises. Great job on this! The food was also great! My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find that this ship had such an array of dining selections and the quality of the food. ...
