The 133,500 gross ton cruise ship is on a 13-day cruise featuring extended port calls in Italy, Croatia, Malta, and Greece. The voyage kicks off a series of European cruises from Spain culminating in a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing ending in New York on May 23.  Carnival Horizon is the 26th cruise ship in Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet.

Following an invitation-only naming ceremony featuring Grammy Award-winning artist and acclaimed actress Queen Latifah, Carnival Horizon will embark on a summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean voyages from New York beginning May 24.  After these series of cruises, the cruise ship will reposition to Miami for year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean voyages beginning Sept. 22, 2019.

Carnival Horizon offers several unique and exciting features, including a new Dr. Seuss-themed WaterWorks aqua park, part of the line’s exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Bonsai Teppanyaki, the line’s first teppanyaki venue, and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse|Brewhouse serving up “real deal” barbecue favorites created by Food Network star Guy Fieri, as well as four new craft beers brewed on board.

The second in the cruise line’s highly successful Vista-class, Carnival Horizon also offers fun innovations like the bike-ride-in-the-sky aerial attraction SkyRide, an IMAX Theatre, the Havana section with tropics-inspired staterooms and its own pool, and Family Harbor featuring extra-roomy accommodations and the Family Harbor Lounge.

Like its name implies, Carnival Horizon also includes food and beverage outlets offering amazing views with both indoor and al fresco seating options at venues such as Bonsai Sushi, Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse and Library Bar.
