Sister to the magnificent Carnival Vista, Carnival Horizon joined Carnival’s fleet in early 2018. With the emphasis on 'fun' and bringing the indoors outdoors, Carnival Horizon impresses from the moment you step aboard. Her fourteen decks are lined with a diverse selection of restaurants, bars, sports and leisure options, entertainment venues, and luxury staterooms. Work on your tan by the Tides Pool or soak up the views at the Havana infinity pool. The SportSquare offers outdoor sports such as football and volleyball or meet the challenge of the SkyRide. Pamper yourself in the Cloud 9 Spa or seek the tranquillity of the adult-only Serenity Retreat. Discover hours of fun for tots to teens in Camp Ocean, Dr Seuss Bookville, Club 02 and Circle "C".
There is an eclectic mix of dining options aboard the Carnival Horizon; ranging from classic American burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint to fresh Japanese sushi at Bonsai Sushi. Sit down to three-course dinners in the Aft and Forward Restaurants or dine on casual-style, international dishes at Lido Marketplace. Tuck into homemade tortillas, stuffed burritos, and tacos at BlueIguana Cantina or get a taste of Italy with the hand-tossed pizzas at Pizzeria Del Capitano. Feast on premium steaks and seafood in Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, savour pan-Asian favourites in Ji Ji Asian Kitchen, or enoy seafood snacks at the Seafood Shack. Take a seat at The Chef's Table for the ultimate foodie experience as the chef creates culinary delights before your eyes.
There are plenty of locations for a refreshing drink aboard Carnival Horizon. Relax with your morning cappuccino at JavaBlue Cafe or take in the views with a fruit juice on The Lanai. People-watch at the Vista Atrium Bar or enjoy tropical cocktails in Red Frog Rum Bar. Join in the sing-alongs with a glass of wine at the Piano Bar 88. Sip frozen tequilas poolside at Blue Iguana Tequila Bar or freshly-mixed mojitos at Havana Bar. Let the mix masters at Alchemy Bar create you a colourful concoction or watch big-screen sports over an ice-cold beer in SKYBOX Sports Bar.
Carnival Horizon really comes to life after dark. Liquid Lounge has a stage with LED video wall and is the place for production shows, variety shows (Playlist Productions and Hasbro, The Game Show), and late night dancing. The Limelight Lounge hosts late night shows, cabaret acts, and The Punchliner Comedy Club. There are also two cinemas at Carnival Multiplex - the IMAX Theatre with a huge screen and the full 3D experience at the adjoining Thrill Theater - where you can watch the latest movies.
