The Carnival Horizon completes five years of service

By Cruise Booking Team

March marks the five-year anniversary of the Carnival Horizon.

Carnival Cruise Line received the Vista-class vessel on March 28, 2018, after it was built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Italy.

The 4,000-passenger ship left its building dock and repositioned to Barcelona, Spain, where it departed on its inaugural Mediterranean cruise.

On the 12-night cruise, different ports of call were visited in Italy, Croatia, and Malta during the first in a series of four sailings from the European port.

It was in May that the Carnival Horizon crossed the Atlantic for the first time after a short Mediterranean season.

Later in the summer, the vessel offered four-night Bermuda cruises and eight-night Caribbean cruises from New York.

Queen Latifah officially christened the Horizon on May 28, 2018 before it began service from the Big Apple.

During the ceremony, Carnival made a $100,000 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in addition to raising donations onboard and ashore.

After repositioning to Miami in late September, the vessel will operate year-round six- and eight-night Caribbean cruises from Miami.

Known as the Vista Class, the Carnival Horizon was the second ship in a series of three.

In addition to offering sweeping views, the vessels in this class offer plenty of activities indoors and out.

Each Vista Class ship boasts an atrium with a three-deck-high LED sculpture, Dreamscape, and a SkyRide open-air cycling experience.

Carnival Cruise Line introduced two firsts on the Horizon: the first Teppanyaki Restaurant and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse and Brewhouse.
