You never know who you will run into on the new Carnival Horizon that did several seven-night Mediterranean spins before heading to its Miami base. Dr. Seuss and his merry friends often lead a congo line on deck much to the amusement of cruisers of all ages. The 15-deck Carnival Horizon that caters for 3916 passengers, features the first
Dr. Seuss WaterWorks park where youngsters slip, slide and splash around with dual slides and a giant tipping bucket that drenches all. The popular Skyride gives an adrenaline rush and a bird’s eye view of the ship – just take a seat and start pedalling on the suspended track. There’s an IMAX Theatre, sports square with the first sky ropes course at sea, outdoor fitness area, mini golf, pools, shuffleboard and a two-lane bowling alley.
The fun family ship offers a range of accommodation from a spa cabin with exclusive privileges at the luxurious Cloud 9 Spa to an extra-roomy stateroom in Family Harbour with nautical décor. Tropics-inspired Havana staterooms and suites that come with exclusive daytime access to a Cuban-themed bar and infinity pool are popular. There’s literally a smorgasbord of restaurants and cafes onboard – some you pay extra for and some you don’t. Speciality restaurants include the first Bonsai Teppanyaki at sea, while Guy Fieri’s Pig and Anchor Barbeque Smokehouse and brewery is a winner. Favourite watering holes include the Alchemy Bar with vintage-themed cocktails and the Havana Bar where you can sip a mojito and tap your toes to the Cuban classic Guantanamera. carnival.com
