Slated to launch April 2018, Carnival Horizon will be a sister ship to Carnival Vista -- with many of the same features, as well as a handful of firsts for the line.

Among the new features will be a Teppanyaki restaurant -- part of an expansion to the line's popular Bonsai Sushi -- and Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Q Smokehouse Brewhouse, which will serve a variety of smoked meats and sides for lunch (complimentary, on embarkation day and sea days) and dinner (a la carte, nightly); it will also offer craft beer brewed onboard and live music every night.

The 3,936-passenger will boast a handful of Carnival staples, including RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, Guy's Burger Joint and BlueIguana Cantina, as well as some of the most popular new spaces that debuted on Carnival Vista: SkyRide and IMAX movie theater.

After Carnival Horizon's launch in Europe, the ship will sail four Mediterranean cruises (ranging from seven to 13 nights) from Barcelona before repositioning to New York for a summer of four-night Bermuda and eight-night Caribbean cruises; it will then make its way down to Miami for year-round, six- and eight-night Caribbean cruises beginning September 2018.
