Carnival Cruise Line has released several photos from the shipyard of their next cruise ship, Carnival Horizon. The 133,500 gross ton cruise ship will be the largest ship in Carnival’s fleet when she debuts next spring.
Carnival Horizon will be the 26th cruise ship in Carnival’s fleet and will carry 3,934 passengers. The ship will offer many of the innovative indoor and outdoor dining, bar, entertainment and activity options that debuted on Carnival Vista, along with a brand new first-of-its-kind Dr. Seuss-themed WaterWorks aqua park.

Carnival Horizon will also offer a fun bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction called SkyRide and an IMAX Theatre. A variety of cabin categories, including spa cabins with exclusive privileges at the Cloud 9 Spa, extra-roomy staterooms in Family Harbor, and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms and suites with exclusive daytime access to a Cuban-themed bar and pool, will be offered as well.
Carnival Horizon is scheduled to make its maiden voyage April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from this port. Carnival Horizon will reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018.
Following its summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from the New York, Carnival Horizon will shift to PortMiami, the Cruise Capital of the World, and kick off a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning Sept. 22, 2018. Carnival Horizon will also offer a special two-day cruise to Nassau from Miami Sept. 20-22, 2018.
