NIGHTS ARE WHEN CARNIVAL HORIZON TRULY comes to life. Live music is spread throughout the ship, and can be heard in nearly every public room, lounge, and bar.
The Piano Bar 88 has been given a brand-new look, complete with crimson red décor and a wall partition that opens to allow diners in the adjacent Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse to enjoy both music and pre- dinner cocktails before heading next door.
At Alchemy Bar, mixologists create cocktails to order, based on your preferences. Sure, there’s a menu here, but why order off it? Amble up to the bar, tell the bartender what your poison is, and watch it being created right in front of you.
This ship is the antidote to boredom. Non-stop trivia, nightly production shows, and Carnival’s fantastic Punchliner Comedy performances (in PG and R-rated versions) keep things entertaining, as do the deck parties, atrium get-togethers, and the ship’s lively casino and SkyBox Sports Bar.
Even in the Mediterranean, I caught myself skipping entire ports of call to spend some more time aboard Carnival
Horizon. She may look like her predecessors on the outside, but make no mistake: she’s a true original inside.
Carnival Horizon’s atrium features the metamorphosing LED Dreamscape sculpture: a mecca for music and nightlife.
