  3. Carnival Horizon
Chose cruise on horizon for family of 5. Day before cruise, get an email from carnival sky ride is closed....... of course my kids really wanted to do that. Ship was new and spotless, crew members and director was also amazing. Food was absolutely horrible and I really miss the ability to create your own salad from the salad bar (buffet) like on the dream. Guys burger joint went from being good to just okay. Dining room food horrible and if you wanted an edible steak, it costs $20 extra. Flat iron steak sucks! Made reservations in MAY, and had a confirmation email in writing from bonsai teppanyaki and when we showed up for our reservation, there was no record, nor did we have any place to eat that night......... email or not....... screw you.......lord forbid we were going to eat the rancid left overs in the buffet!!!!!! Pizza and ice cream were good. Guys pig and anchor, was good when it was free for lunch.....would NOT pay for it. Seafood shack had good fish and chips for $6......we were so hungry we were desperate for decent food. Any questions please ask. I personally felt nickel and dimed to death, and would not sail on this class of ship again.

Just back from horizon 8/4

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Stingray Swim
    Family friendly uses great boat to get on and off of, not just a ladder to balance on. Tour was perfect for entire family. Anything sting ray city takes a long time, if your kids are prone to sunburns, as mine are, wear sun shirts....... a must for this excursion! We brought ziplock bags and packed sandwiches the night before. Best PBJ or turkey sandwich ever! Long tour, and if your kids are hungry, there is NO WHERE to eat........
