  3. Carnival Horizon
We have cruise several Royal Caribbean ships, and were looking for a change so thought we'd try the newest Carnival ship, the Horizon. She is a beautiful ship with all sorts of great options for fun. From their thermal spa to the Skybikes and Skycourse we tried it all. We chose a spa balcony room on deck 11, which was a perfect location for us since we used the spa, the running track and pool areas often. The buffet did not have as many choices as we're used to, but there were a large number of free food choices available for breakfast and lunch around the pool deck also. My favorite was the Blue Iguana breakfast burritos. The pizza was great too! The staff was great, the comedians were hysterical, shows were a bit artsy for me but were ok, and the cruise Director Schwartz was amazing! His energy was infectious! Only thing I didn't love was the casino smelled terrible, like stale cigars or something. And since deck 3 didn't go through we usually had to walk through casino to get to dining room.

Great time!

Great cabin, but I wish we were on portside to watch the pier runners
