Carnival Horizon; Bring on the fun

Carnival Cruise line is known for fun, fun, and more fun. With a fleet of 26 ships and more on the way they certainly have fun covered! From the activities, entertainment, and fabulous dining options it’s no wonder why they are known for fun. The Carnival Horizon just may have topped all the Carnival ships. The 3,954 passenger Carnival Horizon is packed with fun activities and games. Carnival Horizons sister ship Vista was a great success, Carnival stepped up the experiences by adding more amenities to the Horizon. They covered the thrills, the relaxation, the kids, and the foodies. Check out 10 of the favorite things to experience on the Carnival Horizon.

Number 1

The Skyride

This is one of the most popular onboard experiences. Found only on the Horizon and its sister ship the Vista. An open-air attraction will take you into a pedal powered capsule as you make your way around a suspended track. Take in the 360-degree view of the majestic ocean; close your eyes and imagine the views around you.

Number 2

Guy Fieri

The Carnival Horizon features not one but two restaurants by one of the worlds best known chef, Guy Fieri. If BBQ is your thing, stop in ‘Guys Pig and Anchor Smokehouse’ for some delicious baby-back ribs, scrumptious sausage, mouthwatering brisket, salmon, or dry rubbed chicken. Is your stomach growling yet?

If you want a fine dining experience, ‘The Brewhouse’ will be right up your alley. This is next to one of the most popular restaurants on the Carnival Horizon cruise ship. The Brewhouse features an exclusive line of parched pig craft brews. You won’t want to miss this fine dining establishment; but make sure you go hungry.

Number 3

Cloud 9 spa

Amidst all the non-stop entertainment you may find you need to take a break from the fast-paced fun for a different kind of experience, a relaxing kind. The Carnival Horizon has just the spot to soak up relaxation, The Cloud 9 Spa. The spa offers facials, body wraps, thermal suites, massages, and so much more! You are going to be rejuvenated and ready to get more fun on!

Number 4


Say what? Yes, Clue, murder mystery fun. This classic board game brought to life will be so much fun. If you are a sleuth in disguise; or even if you are not, you’ll have a great time throughout your cruise trying to figure out who murdered Mr. Boddy. Grab a special Clue case file and work together to solve the murder. If you solve the murder mystery you even get a prize.

Number 5


Do you have mad lip sync skills? Then get in on the lip sync battle, show off your skills and win the LSB belt! Take on fellow cruisers by participating in an on-stage adaptation of the hit series. Fake it if you must, show that attitude and dance moves to try to make it to the finals. Carnival will elevate your performance with props, lights, music, choreographers, and back up dancers, you’re sure to feel like a superstar!

Number 6


Picture this, your all strapped up in the sky-high course, you look around and gaze at the endless views of the ocean as you take your first step onto the rope course that takes you high above. Could it get any cooler as you breathe in the sea air? This will get you adrenaline pumping! There are two levels, you can decide if you feel like pushing yourself or taking it a little easier at the moment. Either way you choose you will never forget this awesome experience on the Carnival Horizon.

Number 7

Seuss Waterworks

What is this you ask? A Dr. Seuss themed waterpark on the Carnival Horizon. That’s right a waterpark! Complete with a racing slide, a drainpipe slide. But that’s not all, slide down a towering twisting waterslide and get soaked beneath the huge Cat in the Hat tipping hat, a huge bucket that tips to get everyone underneath wet. An all-time kid favorite!

Number 8

Imax theatre

The Horizon is only one of two Carnival Ships that boast an Imax theatre. Choose latest blockbusters, recent hit films or even some documentaries and get surrounded in a 3D experience while on the open ocean.

Number 9

Hasbro, the game show

The Carnival Horizon cruise ship brings your favorite board games from childhood to life. Play giant life-sized versions of Connect 4, Sorry! Operation, and Simon. Grab the family and/or friends for some life size family fun.

Number 10

Serenity adult retreat

Our kids are the light of our lives, but sometimes a little time away is good for the soul. Head to the Serenity retreat, that is a blocked off area for ages 21 and above. Find a lounge chair to read, nap, have a quiet drink, or chill in a peaceful environment. Sound lovely? Just don’t forget to make a reservation, this is a popular place for adults.

I hope this brings you some value when you think about your next cruise. With all the exciting activities on the Carnival Horizon I can’t wait to see what comes next for Carnival! I hope you feel that excitement too

Whether you are going for relaxation, adventure, to spend quality time with loved ones (or all the above) Carnival Horizon has it all.
