Carnival believes fun is a choice
June 2018 | By Carnival Cruise Line | 5 minute read |
Carnival believes fun is a choice. Fun isn’t a nice to have. It’s a necessity. Fun breaks down barriers, opens up possibilities. That means racing down a giant water slide. Or lip syncing your heart out. Or simply taking a moment to let out a deep “ahhhhh” over a perfect ocean view. When you opt for fun it comes gratis with joy and elation and self-discovery and if you’re real lucky, memories for a couple of lifetimes.
A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite to come as you are, as we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world’s most beautiful seaports.
Carnival 26 ships operate 3- to 16-day sailings, departing from every coast in the U.S., plus from Canada, Puerto Rico and Barbados. While they’re best known for Caribbean cruises, they sail to other exotic and amazing destinations like Mexico, Alaska, The Bahamas, Cuba and Hawaii. Choose Fun!
No one doubts that going on a cruise is always a great idea. But the excitement of stepping on board and checking out the ship’s comfy staterooms and amenities hits epic proportions when that ship is brand new! So, if you’re already planning your next vacation, it’s time to check out Carnival’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon!
Carnival newest 133,500-Ton Ship of endless fun is filled with imaginative features, delicious meals, award-winning service, incredible entertainment and unique Carnival experiences that are simply meant to be shared!
Indoors or out, active or chill, a Carnival Horizon has the perfect mix of Carnival fan favorites from the groundbreaking bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction SkyRide®, the IMAX® Theatre1 to the brand new first-of-its-kind Dr. Seuss-themed WaterWorks . Guest can alsochoose from a wide range of accommodations, including spa cabins offering exclusive privileges at the luxurious Cloud 9 Spa, extra-roomy staterooms in Family Harbor, and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms and suites with exclusive daytime access to Havana Bar and Pool where you can enjoy handcrafted Cuban cocktails and a bit of that old-time Cuban resort flavor.
So whether you cruise to the Bahamas, Bermuda or the Caribbean, you’re in for an incredible vacation!
Worn out at the end of the day? Fun will do that! Retire to your comfy Carnival Horizon stateroom and max out on relaxation. Onboard Carnival Horizon, you’ll find some very special staterooms and suites that will have you feeling refreshed in no time.
Havana Staterooms & Suites
Consider your Havana stateroom or suite your own island resort aboard Carnival Horizon. Most important is the exclusive location: near the Havana Bar & Pool. This pool is your members-only spot by day, and a fun-for-all hotspot when the sun goes down. Indoors, all Havana staterooms feature a unique décor, but step up to a Havana Cabana for an extra-large outdoor chill space that features a lounge-ready hammock chair. Step into a Havana Cabana suite for even more space, plus a luxurious rain shower. (All Havana stateroom guests must be 12 or older.)
Family Harbor Staterooms & Suites
Families will love the space of the Family Harbor staterooms and suites—not to mention their proximity to the Family Harbor Lounge, an exclusive spot with breakfast, snacks during the day, concierge service… plus Hasbro board games, family movies, video games and more. The benefits don't end there — your little girls and boys eat free in most onboard specialty restaurants and get a free evening of Night Owls babysitting service, so you can enjoy a little alone time.
Cloud 9 Spa Staterooms & Suites
For even more pampering, you may want to opt for a Cloud 9 stateroom to enjoy exclusive room amenities and unlimited access to the spa’s Thermal Suites for no additional charge. Stay in one of these bliss-inducing rooms and you’ll also score priority spa reservations.
Carnival Horizon also has ocean view and balcony staterooms—plus stylish interior staterooms for the best value around.

Savor a mouthwatering tour through the many dining venues on Carnival Horizon, from Casual eats to sophisticated treats.
When it’s time to dine, Carnival Horizon guests have many choices to satisfy almost any taste or mood—beginning with two plate-pleasers never before seen at sea: New BBQ, Brews & First-Ever Teppanyaki.
Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse|Brewhouse
This new dining concept is ideal for the barbeque and beer lovers. It combines the best of both worlds – an onboard brewery and a full-service restaurant featuring “real deal” BBQ favorites and sides developed by Food Network star Guy Fieri. The brewery takes center stage at Smokehouse|Brewhouse, where four craft beers have been developed by expert brewmaster Colin Presby and brewed within the restaurant eatery.
Dinner is a feasr for all the senses at Bonsai Teppanyaki, where Chefs’ dazzling knife work is a much part of the experience as the tantalizing dishes they create.
Carnival’s first-ever teppanyaki dining venue features a wide-ranging menu with authentic delicacies from the Far East prepared by highly skilled chefs who create tantalizing dishes on custom-built stations that form the center of the venue’s two eight-seat tables. Teppanyaki combines ancient Japanese cooking techniques with modern performance art to create a feast that is both culinary and visual.
A host of other dining venues aboard Carnival Horizon are also available, including Cucina del Capitano® family-style Italian restaurant, Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, the Mexican-themed BlueIguana Cantina® eatery, the 24-hour Pizzeria del Capitano®, and the New England-inspired Seafood Shack. And don’t forget about the delicious burgers and fries at Guy’s Burger Joint!
Carnival Horizon’s entertainment lineup continues indoors where you do more than just watch the action; you’re a part of it all. Warm up to the idea of putting yourself in the picture at Carnival Multiplex featuring IMAX® Theatre1. That’s two movie theaters side by side, one with a towering IMAX screen and the other offering 3-D movies with jump-off-the-screen visuals and multi-sensory effects for a fully immersive experience. Then, with Playlist Productions, you can get your toes tapping and your hands clapping along to the most exuberant musical productions staged at sea. Ready for your own close-up? It’s time to brave Carnival Horizon’s Lip Sync BattleTM: Carnival, which brings the hit Spike TV series to life, puts you—and your moves—in the spotlight. Looking for a spot to wrap up your evening in true island style? Head to the Havana Bar for a refreshing drink and the rhythmic feel of an old-time Cuban resort.
Strap in and get ready for a bird’s eye view of the ship—and the ocean—as you zip around the suspended two-lane bike course on Carnival Horizon’s SkyRide®. It may sound fantastical, but the virtual tour will give you a sneak peek of what it will feel like to fly high above deck. SportSquareTM is also where you can work up a sweat as you go through our ropes course at SkyCourse® and hit mini-golf at SkyGreens for a hole-in-one. It’s also where to find everything you need to play soccer, basketball, volleyball and ping-pong. For even more healthy competition with your family and friends, head into The Clubhouse for mini-bowling and pool.
Then, when it’s time to cool off, visit one of Carnival Horizon’s flashiest, splashiest features—Dr. Seuss WaterWorks2, the centerpiece is the two big slides: The Cat’s Hat slide takes you twisting down the red and white stripes of the world’s most famous top-hat, while the Fun Things slide take you through all the topsy-turvy of having the blue-haired pair appear in your living room. With side-by-side racing slides, splashy water-spray toys and a giant tipping top-hat, Dr. Seuss WaterWorks on Carnival Horizon features fun fit for a red fish, a blue fish… a you fish!
When the kids forget the texting and LOL in person, you know they’re having fun! That’s how it should be, right? Because it’s not every day you take the whole family on vacation. So it’s got to have everything for everyone. And that’s exactly what you’ll find on a Carnival cruise. A vacation that’s got fun for your whole family covered, with kid friendly dining, accommodations and entertainment!
