We had wanted a family orient cruise, appealing to a variety of all ages and interests. I feel carnival did an excellent job meeting all of my expectations. The embarkation process was the easiest ever, cabins and all ship areas were clean, and the food was plentiful and high quality. The comedians were particularly good on the ship, as was the cruise director Chris and his staff. After reading other bad reviews on line, I was initially hesitant about going on the cruise, but Carnival Horizon's staff made me wonder if those people had sailed on the same ship that I was on. The fun started from the first minutes on board and did not stop. Everyone was helpful and facilitating, whether it was guest services, crew. Our cabin steward, Ruel, was excellent. Wait staff in the restaurants were extremely helpful, as were the bar staff. I never experienced any bad meals on board, and my family and I are quite picky when it comes to food choice. The ship decor, while very modern, was classy, which was a pleasant surprise to me. Having been on NCL, RCCL and Carnival, I feel that Carnival is just as good if not better than the other two.

Excellent family cruise
