Ship Review: Carnival Horizon
Just back from an 8 day Southern Caribbean itinerary on the beautiful Carnival Horizon and we had a blast on and off the ship. Since I couldn't pack you all in my suitcase, here's a photo tour of the ship so you can pretend you were there.
Dr. Seuss Waterworks look pretty fun!
There's plenty of activities to do in the SportsSquare! SkyRide, a ropes course, a basketball court, a running/walking track, games like Chess and Twister, a club house, mini golf, fitness equipment, and more. All included in the price of your fare.
Our digs for the cruise - an interior stateroom on deck 9.
Cool places to chill all over the ship, including a theatre (that converts to a night club once the daily shows are complete), a brewery/smokehouse, the atrium, and themed bars like the Alchemy Bar, the Havana Bar, the sports bar, rum and tequila bars, a piano bar and more. In the evening, there's several locations where you can enjoy some live music.
You won't starve on a cruise. In addition to the main dining rooms and the buffet area (where meals are always included in your fare), Horizon also has a teppanyaki ($), sushi ($), Italian ($), steakhouse ($), Asian ($), seafood ($), a coffee shop ($), a candy store ($), and room service (some options $). You can even get pizza delivered to wherever you are on board for a small fee.
A fun part of cruising is doing as much or as little as you want. Horizon has an IMAX movie theatre ($) and thrill theatre ($), but you can also watch movies on the big screen outside or in your stateroom. There's a nice adults only place to chill out with comfy chairs and loungers, a good sized gym, the Cloud 9 Spa, a casino, a library, pools and hot tubs, and more. Every there's a list of activities you can choose from, many of which are included in your cruise fare. Carnival also partners with companies like Michaels and Build-a-Bear Workshop to offer classes as well.
