The line that connects the sea and the sky inspired us to build a ship that unites our guests in fun, comfort, dining and exotic destinations. And above all, connect with each other. It's Carnival Horizon!

I haven't done this ship in a while. First, Carnival Horizon goes big with the two-screen Carnival Multiplex®, combining massive IMAX® action-packed theater with 3D visuals, incredible motion effects, and more. The ship keeps things going with an onboard water park that gives you more than just a little splash - Dr. Seuss WaterWorks™ gets you splashing with the help of the wacky characters everyone loves. Ride your bike with SkyRide®. Punchliner Comedy Club™ and Playlist Productions™ are just two of his top picks in entertainment. Meanwhile, Lip Sync Battle™: Carnival is your chance to show off all the talent you've packed before leaving home... on stage.

For relaxation, visit the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat™ or experience the ultimate in relaxation at the Cloud 9 Spa™, featuring amazing massages, thermal suites and more. Havana Bar™ & Pool is also good. A spot that combines stylish poolside lounging with authentic Cuban cocktails and a frenetic nightlife after dark. Carnival Horizon has three age-specific youth areas.

This vessel brings tons of flavor to every meal. It all started with a guy named Guy-Fieri- and he created two great spots on board. One is the popular Guy's Burger Joint™ and the other is Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse | Brewhouse™, a venue that serves classic barbecue paired with freshly brewed beer on board. If you're looking for the best seafood in Carnival Horizon, Seafood Shack™ is your place. Bonsai Teppanyaki™ is intimate dining and interactive performances, while Fahrenheit 555™ is a dining experience that rivals the finest land-based steakhouses. Gigi Asian Kitchen® and Cucina del Capitano® each specialize in pleasing a particular palate. People craving Pan-Asian and traditional Italian food served family style. (check...and check!)

Put it all together and you have a Carnival Horizon vacation.

Sail & Sign®

If guests have not pre-paid their gratuities, the recommended, per person, amount will be posted to their Sail & Sign account on the second to last day of the cruise.
