CARNIVAL HORIZON | A View from the Bridge

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE Carnival Cruise Line selected some of the most talented and experienced mariners in the cruise industry to lead its newest ship. The officers include three who have served in leadership roles on the start-up teams of several new builds.

Captain Luigi De Angelis Master

A 21-year veteran of Carnival, Luigi De Angelis joined the cruise line in 1995 after graduating from maritime school. He served as a deck cadet aboard Carnival Imagination during the ship’s inaugural season, and was part of the start-up teams for Carnival Destiny, Carnival Triumph, Carnival Victory, Carnival Conquest and Carnival Freedom. After moving up through the officer ranks, De Angelis was promoted to captain in 2010. Over the years he has commanded Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom, Carnival Glory, Carnival Magic, Carnival Pride, Carnival Valor and Carnival Vista. A native of Ischia, an island off the coast of Naples, Italy, De Angelis was drawn to a nautical career by family tradition. His father, grandfather and great-grandfather all served as ship captains in the past. The sea is his passion; his family, the greatest gift in life. “Becoming a captain was a dream come true,” he says. 8 CARNIVAL HORIZON

Pierre B. Camilleri Hotel Director

Born and raised on the Mediterranean island of Malta, Pierre Camilleri graduated from the Malta Institute of Tourism Studies, where he specialized in hospitality management. He managed numerous hotels and resorts in Europe, North Africa and Asia before joining the cruise industry in 2002 and Carnival Cruise Line in 2004. He was hotel director for numerous Carnival ships and led the Carnival Breeze and Carnival Vista new-build projects as hotel director. He is a proud father of three lovely daughters, Jessica, Julia and Ella. “Have Fun Be Safe” is Camilleri’s key motivation.

Rosario Capilli Chief Engineer

Rosario Capilli joined Carnival in 1990, following a career in the tanker and cargo industries in his native Italy. He was named chief engineer in 2002 and has served in this capacity on a number of Carnival ships, including Carnival Vista during her inaugural season. During his 27-year Carnival career, Capilli has served on the start-up teams for three Carnival ships.

CARNIVAL HORIZON | Bringing the Ship to Life

BRINGING THE SHIP TO LIFE How Carnival’s new-build teams came together to create the next chapter in the evolution of cruising. Thousands of designers, engineers, carpenters, contractors, machinists, foremen, electricians, mechanics and welders came together to conceive and build the ship, the second in the innovative Vista Class that was first launched with Carnival Vista in 2016. They all brought their A-game to the project. Their expertise and hard work are evident in every detail, from stateroom design and amenities to common area refinements that add comfort and engagement while creating the vacation of a lifetime. “All of our designers were involved at the early stages to develop the main idea for the ship,” recalls Niko Martecchini, Carnival’s manager of new builds. “Once we’d locked in the overall picture, each design firm worked their areas in coordination with the master plan.” The main idea was to use the earth’s horizon as a metaphor, to translate the convergence of land, sea and sky and bring that idea to life on the ship. Their design has united the most popular elements of a Carnival cruise and adds fresh spins to create a whole other cruise experience — a whole new world of fun, from the heartpumping thrills of the first-ever Dr. Seuss WaterWorks to the succulent delights of the world’s first Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse. It’s a ship that unites people with fun, with comfort, with adventurous dining and exotic destinations — and with one another.

Martecchini is especially excited about a few standout features on the ship. “Really looking forward to a meal at Bonsai Teppanyaki,” he says. “It’s a first on a Carnival ship! And it’s going to be hard to beat barbecued beef and beer at (Guy’s) Pig & Anchor, especially when Guy Fieri’s involved! We’re also really excited about the Family Harbor Extended Aft View cabins — the view is going to be incredible.” Technically Impressive Carnival Horizon continues to set the standard for environmental stewardship in the cruise industry, says Richard Pruitt, Carnival’s director of environmental operations. It has an advanced wastewater purification system that can meet the most stringent international treatment requirements. The ship also boasts a revolutionary propulsion system with twin 170-ton Azipod propellers at the aft end that rotate a full 360 degrees, to optimize maneuverability and increase fuel efficiency. “What we have in place is setting the standard for new builds going forward,” Pruitt says. “It’s an honor to be associated with a ship that’s as environmentally friendly as this.” Martecchini says the new ship merges innovation with the best of the Vista Class — no small feat. “The hardest part of (creating) Carnival Horizon was finding a way to keep everything that we loved from Carnival Vista and still find room to introduce new things,” Martecchini says. “It wasn’t easy, but we think we found a combination that’s going to put a smile on everyone’s face who comes aboard!”

ART WITH HEART Young artists from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital contribute to brilliant atrium sculpture.

The heart of the ocean can be found in Dreamscape, a massive, three-deck-high LED sculpture in the ship’s main atrium. The sculpture features 33 different artistic creations from young patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of Carnival’s most significant charitable partners. Designed by Techno Media, Dreamscape is a funnel-shaped centerpiece comprised of more than 2,000 flexible LED tiles that have been customized for the shipboard environment. Each day, technicians on board program the rotating artwork based on the time of day, port or occasion of note. For Carnival Horizon, the young artists from St. Jude were tasked with creating fun pieces with bright, bold colors showcasing their personalities. The original creations complement the more than 100 images that continually rotate throughout the day and evening, bringing the ship to life and providing guests of all ages with a unique and memorable vacation backdrop.

Located in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude treats children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases and is dedicated to advancing cures and means of prevention. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. Carnival’s partnership with St. Jude began in 2010 and was expanded in 2013, when the cruise line was named the hospital’s Official Celebration Partner. In that time, Carnival has raised more than $13 million for St. Jude through a variety of engaging activities, including the creation of special Brownie Buoy ice cream in Cherry on TopTM on Carnival Vista. “We couldn’t be happier to showcase these amazing creations designed by the talented St. Jude patients on our newest ship,” says Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “We are always looking to bring to life our partnerships in a way that also gives back. This is just another way to recognize the work St. Jude does for the families and patients they serve.”

Dreamscape, the LED sculpture in the atrium, includes artwork by young patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

FIRSTS IN CLASS Innovative additions to Carnival’s new class of ship.

Dr. Seuss Properties TM & © 2018 Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. All Rights Reserved.

Dr. Seuss WaterWorks It all began with WaterWorks, the wet and wild aqua park that became one of Carnival’s signature sources of unbeatable vacation fun. Then came the fun times of Seuss at Sea, created through an exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises; it brought the beloved Cat in the Hat and friends on board for interactive story time, a character parade and breakfast and, on some ships, a reading and play space called Dr. Seuss Bookville. Put them together and you get the first-ever Dr. Seuss WaterWorks — a water park that appeals to all ages, where you can slip, slide and splash around with your favorite Dr. Seuss characters. “Dr. Seuss is an iconic American brand and we are delighted to expand our partnership with this incredible top-deck water attraction for our guests,” says Carnival President Christine Duffy. Adds Caroline Lombardi, Carnival’s director of youth experience, “We designed Dr. Seuss WaterWorks very closely with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to ensure that it included all the fun and whimsy you’d expect from such a beloved brand.” She says the two brands came together perfectly. “We’re both aligned around similar, powerful values that focus on creating meaningful and fun family experiences. We also both appeal to multiple generations. Everyone can have fun with Dr. Seuss and everyone can have fun on Carnival!”

2018_CCL_HORIZON_4_Broaden_Your_Horizons_v4.indd 15

“So many of our activations have been the outcome of hours of fun brainstorming between Carnival and Dr. Seuss Enterprises,” she says. “So many ‘what ifs’ have become reality because we are both passionate about delivering experiences to our guests that have only previously existed in our imaginations.” New Tastes on the Menu Carnival ventures into delicious new territory with two other groundbreaking new venues. Bonsai Teppanyaki is the cruise line’s first teppanyaki restaurant, part of the expansion of its popular Bonsai Sushi restaurant. “It was a natural evolution,” says Cyrus Marfatia, vice president of culinary and dining programs. “Teppanyaki is such a popular blend of entertainment and dining, it is a natural fun fit for our guests and Carnival Horizon.” We call this a match made in hog heaven: Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse, where barbecue classics pair with craft beers brewed right on board. It’s the latest foodie achievement from Guy Fieri, creator of the burger and barbecue eateries on many Carnival ships.

Carnival Horizon takes the Vista Class to exciting new heights. Here are some new experiences you won’t want to miss.

It just wouldn’t be the Vista Class without them.



01 / HAVANA BAR & POOL Classic mojitos, smooth moves and the mesmerizing moonlight — what could be better? An exclusive tropical paradise by day, the Havana Bar & Pool becomes a hot dance spot after dark with its unique Latin flair. The ocean view provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of handcrafted Cuban cocktails, Cuban-style snacks and vibrant, hip-shaking music.

02 / SKYRIDE As if being out at sea isn’t enough, SkyRide is truly an above-and-beyond ride of your life. The two-lane bikeride-in-the-sky attraction soars 150 feet above the sea and cycles through the open air along an 800-foot suspended track. How can you not love a leisurely bike ride while taking in the incredible ocean views from a heightened perspective? It’s time to spread your wings.

Carnival’s most expansive outdoor recreation area, SportSquare is an onboard paradise for guests who revel in an active lifestyle. Just some of the fun: SkyCourse, the first ropes course at sea; the first outdoor fitness area; and a 9-hole miniature golf course. The indoor clubhouse houses pool, soccer, ping pong, billiards, foosball, shuffleboard, the two-lane SkyBowl and much more. Get your play on!

2018_CCL_HORIZON_5_Vista_Classics_v4.indd 17


04 / CARNIVAL MULTIPLEX FEATURING IMAX Watching a movie is an all-encompassing experience when it’s in the grand, side-by-side theaters of the Carnival Multiplex. At three decks high and almost the entire width of the ship, the giant screen and full surround sound in the IMAX® theater completely immerses viewers in the film. Next door, The Thrill Theater offers 3-D viewing where jump-off-the-screen visuals are only the beginning of a truly moving experience. Your expectation for going to the movies will be forever changed. So gather the family, grab some popcorn and take in the latest movies to hit the box office.

It’s added some innovations, and Carnival Horizon also keeps the elements that make the Vista Class so fun-tastic.

As the Number 1 cruise line for families, Carnival leads the way in creating memorable vacations for moms, dads and kids. Carnival Horizon is taking things even farther. But this is more than just a floating playground. Everyone can go to special spaces created just for them and then come together as a family. It’s the perfect staging area for the perfect family vacation. There’s only one Dr. Seuss WaterWorks water park in the whole wide world, and Carnival Horizon has it. The centerpiece is the set of dual slides, The Cat’s Hat and Fun Things, named, respectively, for Dr. Seuss favorites The Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2. High above is a giant tipping bucket that splashes hundreds of gallons of water onto those below. “The Dr. Seuss WaterWorks is going to be a major highlight for families,” says Caroline Lombardi, director of youth experience. “You’ll find The Cat and The Grinch (with his surfboard and shades, of course) at the entry to the waterpark,” she says. “Thing 1 and Thing 2 are playing on the columns high above the slides. At The Cat’s Hat slide, you’ll enter through the brim of the hat and slide your way through the stripes in an inner tube. The Fun Things slide features interspersed circles of light that make the trip down fun and memorable.”

And More Fun for Families Families get special treatment in several just-for-them places on the ship: 01 / Family Harbor: Staterooms and suites are designed for families, with fun nautical décor and plenty of room to stretch out. Guests staying here get exclusive access to the Family Harbor Lounge, and parents get one free night of Night Owls babysitting. Perfect! (See “Living Large” for more details on Family Harbor.)

They’ll start by splitting up into three different age groups: 2-to 5-year-olds are Penguins, 6-to 8-year-olds are Stingrays and 9- to 11-year-olds are Sharks — with experienced staff there to make sure everyone has an amazing time with tons of fun-filled, age-appropriate activities including arts and crafts, active games, dancing, movies, toy time and video gaming. And when it’s mealtime, kids get their own menus, with faves like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets and more. 03 / Circle C®: Where young teens ages 12-14 go to chill, meet new friends and enjoy awesome activities like dance parties, scavenger hunts, games, arts and crafts, outdoor movies and more! It’s all supervised by friendly and experienced staff who want your young teens to have the best vacation ever!

W t

04 / Club 02®: Guests ages 15-17 can hang here enjoying plenty of stuff just for them: movies, music, sports and video games, karaoke jam sessions and more, all with their new friends.

Asked for the secret to the perfect family vacations, Lombardi jokes that “it’s really the 24-hour all-youcan-eat-ice-cream on Carnival Horizon that makes everything perfect.” “Seriously, though,” she adds, “we do work very hard to provide fun and unique activities for kids and parents alike, as well as opportunities for shared experiences. If you think back to your childhood and your best memories, chances are some of them, if not most of them, took place on vacation when everyone was really living in the moment. At Carnival, we are programming each moment to help our guests have the best times of their lives.”

When it’s time to dine, Carnival Horizon guests have many choices to satisfy almost any taste or mood — beginning with two palate-pleasers never before seen at sea. Bonsai Teppanyaki Dinner is a feast for all the senses at Bonsai Teppanyaki, where chefs’ dazzling knife work is as much a part of the experience as the tantalizing dishes they create. Carnival’s first-ever teppanyaki restaurant combines ancient Japanese cooking techniques with modern performance art. The wide-ranging menu features 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 eightseat tables. The Japanese hibachi grill stations allow the chefs to dazzle guests with their amazing knife skills and give an epic show in delectable fashion. “We specifically went 24 CARNIVAL HORIZON

out and recruited our new chefs for Bonsai Teppanyaki,” says Cyrus Marfatia, vice president of culinary and dining programs. “Each has extensive experience performing their culinary talents in a teppanyaki style restaurant. The ability to cook and perform for a crowd requires a special skill set. It’s not just for celebrity chefs!” Diners begin their meal with appetizers such as Miso Soup; Kabuki Salad with Ginger Dressing; Teppanyaki Shrimp with Soy Butter and Salsa Vinaigrette; Pork Belly Yakitori with Sesame Asparagus Fries and Seaweed Salad; and Spicy Tuna on the Rocks with Onion Sesame Sauce and Den Miso. They can then choose from a variety of entrees, including Lobster Tail with Yuzu Cream and Citrus Kosho; Filet Mignon with Truffle Salt, Garlic Chips and Champagne Cognac Flambé; Teriyaki Salmon with Savory and Sweet Teriyaki Glaze; Black Cod with Soy Reduction; Shrimp with Young Lettuce and Gyukuro Tea; Bonsai Teppanyaki.

The restaurant’s authentic, down-home, smokedon-board barbecue and traditional sides were created by the renowned chef himself. You’ll want to dive right in and enjoy such favorites as brisket custom-smoked for 18 hours; Memphis-style baby back ribs; dry-rubbed and grill-finished chicken; and cedar-smoked salmon with an apricot glaze — all cooked “low and slow” using Fieri’s signature rubs and spices.

Where do we eat? Complimentary Dining Guy’s Burger Joint: Celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s idea of the perfect allAmerican burger is cooked to your liking in a roadside shack atmosphere. The toppings bar turns any burger into your own delicious creation. Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse: Classic barbecue and craft brews created right onboard in the restaurant. Fieri personally chose the restaurant’s smoker from Ole Hickory Pits, which has been manufacturing championship competition smokers in Missouri for over 40 years. But it had to be extensively modified to meet strict safety requirements. After many hours’ work and consultation with experts, the smoker was ready to go. “We have over 4,000 hours of barbecue smoking under our belt so far,” Marfatia says proudly, “and we aren’t slowing down any time soon.” Located along the ship’s promenade, the 138-seat venue has indoor and outdoor seating and authentic touches like ceiling tiles made of weathered galvanized siding, red brick walls, hardwood floors and booth and high-top seating with Fieri’s signature FLAVORTOWN catch phrase illuminating the full-service bar.

Main Dining Rooms: A huge array of international dishes, available in two distinctively designed restaurants, make for a festive sit-down dining event.

Fieri’s lip-smacking dishes are perfectly paired with a selection of distinctive beers produced right in the onboard brewery. They include four new specialties crafted by Colin Presby, Carnival brewmaster, especially for the ship’s launch: ParchedPig Smoked Porter: Robust and full-bodied; brewed with in-house smoked malt. ParchedPig Farmhouse Ale: Lightly hopped, blond beer with a fruity and complex character. ParchedPig Toasted Amber Ale: Smooth, well balanced and highly drinkable. ParchedPig West Coast IPA: Embodiment of a traditional West Coast India Pale Ale; hoppy and intense.

“We have over 4,000 hours of barbecue smoking under our belt so far, and we aren’t slowing down any time soon.” — Cyrus Marfatia Vice President, Culinary and Dining Programs

Presby says the Brewhouse is “a full beer experience, not just liquid in a glass. Guests can join a brewery tour, learn about the brewing process, try a tasting flight and even watch the next batch of fresh beer being made. There is a huge demand for personal engagement and that’s a perfect fit with the way we do things here are Carnival.” Fieri says, “I’m excited about launching my newest shipboard eatery at Carnival. I know what it takes to make real-deal barbecue — quality meats smoked ‘low and slow’ and topnotch sides using the freshest ingredients. And when you combine down-home barbecue with a cold beer brewed right on board, you have a truly outta-bounds experience!”

Looking for some retail therapy? You’ve come to the right place! The Fun Shops have just what you need — and a few things you just want. (And have you heard about the Victoria’s Secret shop?) When you feel the need to treat (yourself or someone special), head to The Fun Shops, the onboard retail spot where shopping is — well, it’s as much fun as the rest of your cruise. Not only is this the place to get the latest name brands in jewelry, watches, cosmetics, spirits and more. Not only can you save big on everything you buy, thanks to special tax and duty free pricing. The Fun Shops takes shopping to a whole new level (and we don’t just mean it’s on two decks instead of just one). At The Fun Shops, you’ll find new brands, new styles and new ways to put it all to work for you. “On board Carnival Horizon, we have set the tone for our most exciting shopping experience yet — showing our largest space at sea and the widest offering on any Carnival ship,” says William Butler, vice president of retail services. “We’re introducing numerous new brands and layering them with our classic best sellers.” The big news includes must-have leather goods from Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Rebecca Minkoff, who are joining Carnival for the first time. Also new are watches from Breitling and Hublot. And then there’s Victoria’s Secret. (More on that later.) Fun Is All Around This could be Carnival’s hippest shopping space yet. Located around the atrium on decks 4 and 5, The Fun Shops are designed with an engaging style that’s as energetic and fast-moving as today’s fashion scene.

WOW! Here’s what’s brand-new now at The Fun Shops:


The first stand-alone Victoria’s Secret shop on a Carnival ship. Flaunt-worthy bags from Kate Spade, Michael Kors and Rebecca Minkoff. Watches from Breitling and Hublot, plus the latest wearable tech. On-trend jewelry designs from Alex and Ani, BB Becker, Lulu DK and other top names.

Le Vian.


Store names, too, were thoughtfully determined. “The shop names are central to bringing the shop ideas to life,” Butler says. Thus, HipFish™ for the trio of youthful, vibrant beauty, fashion and watch shops. Island Trader’s™ for beach and port sundries. The Carnival Store for Carnival merchandise. (Why complicate things? You’re on a cruise!) “The Fun Shops were designed and built around guests’ interaction with the products offered,” Butler says. Each space has its own identity but the facades feature sliding glass doors that truly open the retail environment to the central atrium. It’s a bit like shopping in a vibrant downtown gathering spot with music, art, restaurants and lounges. It makes shopping an integral part of the cruise experience while making room for what Butler calls “retail-tainment”: special events and elevated experiences. For instance, rather than simply choosing from products lined up on display counters and shelves, guests can experiment with makeup, skincare and fragrance at the “beauty bar” and sample top liquors at the spirit-tasting bar. Trunk shows add a personal touch to jewelry presentations, and watch buyers can learn about timepieces at special seminars. Flexible spaces “let us test and try new brands so we can see what resonates with the guest,” Butler says. “It’s the best way to introduce new brands for our guests. We took a very deliberate approach in tailoring our assortment, stepping back and talking to our guest to find out what they are looking for.” CARNIVAL HORIZON 33

Close attention to retail trends and guest desires led to a dedicated space for wearable tech, featuring some of the most sought-after tech watch brands; the onboard watch specialists are trained experts in this popular trend. Pop-up shops fit today’s “fast fashion” mood for something new and exciting each day. What Matters It’s all about staying on trend, keeping up with what guests are looking for and knowing how to provide it. Fun Shops staff, says Butler, are “the best of the best”: experienced brand experts, highly trained to engage with guests and learn how to meet guests’ needs.

Guest engagement is important, because the cruise shopping experience is really about time. On a voyage of several days, guests don’t have to rush through a store scooping up items on a shopping list; they have the time to shop thoughtfully and to discover new products or entirely new brands. Onboard shopping specialists have the time to help them find the perfect selection. Top designer brands, exclusive collections and soonto-be favorites are all waiting to be encountered in memorable ways. Whether you’re looking for a special piece to celebrate a milestone, something unique to commemorate the trip or just a fresh fashion look, The Fun Shops are a destination you won’t want to miss.

VICTORIA’S SECRET SETS SAIL Yes! The legendary label has its own boutique on a Carnival ship for the first time. Guests of Carnival Horizon get to experience a world of beauty and luxury with one of the world’s most recognized brands, at the onboard Victoria’s Secret shop on deck 5. The shop sells the luxurious fragance and cosmetics for which Victoria’s Secret is so well known. Even more exciting is its selection of beauty accessories, which are found only in travel retail outlets rather than in the company’s shoreside outlets. The shop-in-shop experience makes this far more than just a store. Products are shown amid a sleek, dramatic décor, and events are designed to engage and immerse shoppers in an aura of discovery and exploration. At the Find Your Fragrance event, for instance, guests take a personality quiz to match their interests and personal style with the perfect scent. Bold, colorful displays highlight the latest products and promotions, with a look guests will recognize from the most stylish land-side locations. The Victoria’s Secret shop grew from a simple kiosk on other ships. “Guests related to it so well, we decided to introduce the larger shop environment on (Carnival) Horizon, which offers a wider variety of categories, including the exclusive accessories line,” says William Butler, vice president of retail services. “We are proud to partner with brands like Victoria’s Secret,” he adds.

Now, in keeping with Carnival Horizon’s way of merging two incredible elements into one stupendous sum, the sweet spot is serving ice cream cookie sandwiches. You can even get a custom version with your favorite flavor and toppings. The version on Carnival’s new ship also has expanded to include outdoor seating.

LIVING LARGE Expanded spaces, unique decor and exclusive perks add lots of extra comfort on board Carnival Horizon. Relax to the max in the most family-friendly acommodations available at sea or in other staterooms that are more spacious than many others in their categories. Feel transported by the old-world aura of Havana Staterooms and Suites or the pampering pleasures of Cloud 9 Spa Staterooms and Suites. Wherever and however you stay on board, you’re guaranteed great comfort and style.

Aft-View Balconies for Families

Cloud 9 Spa Staterooms and Suites

Havana Staterooms and Suites

Carnival Horizon guests are the first to enjoy a whole new stateroom category for the cruise line: aft-view extended-balcony staterooms located in the exclusive Family Harbor area. Like Family Harbor’s other 86 staterooms, they feature a colorful nautical theme and are adjacent to the Family Harbor Lounge, designed as the ultimate family hangout with large-screen TVs and complimentary breakfast and snacks.

Cloud 9 Spa staterooms feature exclusive décor and in-room amenities to help soothe you after a long day’s fun, with spa robes and slippers plus toiletries by Elemis. Book one of these staterooms and enjoy priority spa reservations, unlimited access to the thermal suites, free fitness classes, exclusive discounts and more! A full range of Cloud 9 staterooms are available in all sizes, from cozy interiors to stretch-out suites.

Carnival has added 18 additional staterooms to its popular Havana section. Guests staying here will feel like they’ve been swept away to a private island resort. Indoors, all staterooms feature unique island décor and step up to a private Havana Cabana which adds an extra-large outdoor chill space. The suites also feature a luxurious rain shower as well as a lounge-ready hammock outside on a private lanai. Above, this page: A close-up view of Serenity Adult Only Retreat, one of the ship’s most indulgent spaces. Opposite page, top: Havana Staterooms and Suites overlook the Havana Bar & Pool.

Interior Staterooms

Here’s the most affordable way to experience Carnival Horizon, without cutting even a single corner in the comfort department. With an Interior stateroom you’ll get a full private bathroom, 24-hour room service, your choice of bed size and layout — covered in linens you can feel at home in — all of which make this truly a great spot for curling up after a long day’s fun.

Ocean View Staterooms

These rooms have portholes, unlike Interior rooms, and most feature a supremely loungeable couch for those times when neither lying nor standing will do.

Balcony Staterooms

Any time you’re in your well-appointed Balcony stateroom, you’re just steps away from the outdoors by way of your private open-air oasis. You’re in for some amazing ocean views… views so stunning you’ll just have to feel ‘em to believe ‘em.


Since your huge Suite aboard Carnival Horizon affords you VIP status, you’re in the priority line when getting on and off the ship. Feel free to put your feet up — whether you’re passing the time with a soak in the tub or a stretch on the extra-large balcony, there’s always room.

Carnival Horizon takes to sea with a rousing repertoire of entertainment choices: Broadway-quality stage shows; world-class talent on and off stage; fun, interactive programs; and music of all genres wherever you go. “The one thing that stands out for me is the talent,” says Kerry Stables, Carnival’s director of creative development. “We’ve brought in veteran talent from Broadway, the West End of London and other legendary stages to conceive, direct and choreograph three new musical productions. Amazingly talented entertainers have been selected to bring this wonderful new ship to life. Guests will not be disappointed.”

Three new shows have joined the Playlist programs; a fourth, is already a hit on other ships: Celestial Strings: The room is transformed into an enchanted garden ebbing and flowing with the changing seasons. The playlist merges the beauty of classical music with modern rock and pop, with a live orchestration of electrifying strings. The show is book-ended by pre-and post-show performances in the atrium by the string trio and Playlist Performers. It’s conceived, directed and choreographed by Paul Roberts, who has worked with well-known artists such as One Direction, Paul McCartney, Prince and Ed Sheeran.

Soulbound: Set to the greatest R&B hits of all time, this is a sinister story of mischief, mayhem and dastardly deeds. The story unfolds using visual and structural magic illusions as we introduce our four main characters, the Soul Collector, the Ghost, the Witch and the Voodoo Doll. Gothic-inspired costume designs and New Orleans-inspired media and set design set the mood for this tongue in cheek R&B spook-a-rama. Being bad never sounded so good! Choreographer Jill Hillier worked with noted tour director Jamie King on Jennifer Lopez’s Dance Again Tour, Ricky Martin’s All In Tour and The Spice Girls’ Reunion Tour. 80’s Pop to the Max, from Carnival Conquest.

Vintage Pop: It’s a fresh take on the iconic sounds of the Harlem Renaissance and a vintage spin on today’s top hits, with a nod to the legendary Cotton Club. You’re invited to the greatest party ever, led by Duke, Ella, Scat and Snookie in the re-creation of a 1920s nightclub. A six-piece band brings the club to life. Stay or come back later for the after-party — this joint will be jumpin’ for quite a while! Director/choreographer Keith Young has served as choreographer for numerous films and for TV shows including Dancing with the Stars, The Emmy Awards and The 78th Annual Academy Awards.

There are so many ways to enjoy the music that moves you:

The Rockband covers all genres from the 50’s through today. Piano bar entertainers thrive on interactive experiences with their audience.

Singer/songwriter guitar soloists play your favorites (yes, they take requests). The Roadhouse Duo adds a hometown vibe with a mix of blues, rock and country. The Latin Quartet accompanies Amor Cubano and provides nightly entertainment at the Havana Bar.

The Strings Trio is featured in Celestial Strings but you may also hear them pop up elsewhere on the ship. The Horn Trio performs spectacularly on its own as well as being integrated with the Rockband and the Latin Quartet.

LOOK TO THE HORIZON A glimpse of the ports the new ship will visit, first in Europe and then after her repositioning to North America for Bermuda and the Caribbean. The enchantment of the Mediterranean, the romance of the Caribbean and the relaxed elegance of Bermuda come together in Carnival Horizon’s inaugural year, when the ship explores some of the world’s most popular ports.

The Mediterranean

After her first 13 days in the Mediterranean, the ship will spend the month of April on a series of seven- and ten-day Mediterranean voyages. All cruises are round-trip from Barcelona. What could be more amazing than a cruise through the awe-inspiring Mediterranean? There’s so much to see and do: relaxing on golden beaches in Corfu, indulging in culinary pleasures in Provence, taking in glorious art in Florence, discovering the glory that was ancient Rome. And that’s just the beginning. If you’re lucky enough to be on the ship in its first season, you’re lucky indeed.

A breathtaking view of the Mediterranean.

Summer 2018 also sees the ship sailing on several eightday cruises from New York to the Caribbean. But the sunny days don’t end when summer’s gone; in September, the ship will shift to Miami for a year-round schedule of six- and eightday cruises to the Caribbean, with a special two-day cruise to Nassau from Miami in September. So many islands, so much to see and do. If any place can truly have “something for everyone,” this is it. Thrilling water sports? Check. Fascinating history and culture? Check. Food and drink you can’t get enough of? Check and double-check. “Carnival Horizon has a terrific inaugural schedule that features the beautiful island of Bermuda as well as the top destinations throughout Europe and the Caribbean,” says Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president. “What better to see these spectacular places than on this spectacular new ship?”

To help you make the most of your shopping time, we caught up with one of our shopping experts: Emily Bedwell, an eight-year veteran of cruise shopping. She shared some of her expert guidance for shopping on your cruise. Here’s some of our chat:

Why is a cruise such a great time and place to shop? In just a few days you can visit beautiful destinations which all have something unique to offer! Shopping is made easy with the shops onboard and the wealth of shopping opportunities in the ports of call. How can a shopping expert or sales associate help me when I go shopping? A shopping expert is the person everyone needs to be best friends with when shopping on a cruise! They have done the homework for you and can tell you the very place that has exactly what you are looking for at the best price. They’ll also tell you the very person to speak to — manager, owner or sales associate — so you’ll be taken care of. There’s no need to have to traipse from store to store when you can find what you’re looking for straight away.

Tips for choosing the perfect remembrance of your visit in port. Between zipping down the slides at Dr. Seuss WaterWorks, taking in a spectacular stage show and enjoying some beer and barbecue at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse, there’s even more fun in port. One of the greatest thrills of a cruise vacation is finding the perfect memento of your visit, whether it’s a breath-taking diamond ring or the creation of a local artisan.

Are most people shopping for themselves, or is this a good time to get gifts for people back home? Both! It’s a great time to shop for everyone! A cruise is the perfect time to indulge in something special for yourself — because of the selection, the pricing and the fact that you deserve it on vacation! You must take home something that will be a treasured keepsake and reminder of your cruise vacation. When it comes to family and friends, they will be covered too! Stock up for birthdays, anniversaries — all the occasions that matter. Finally, what is the one thing that’s most important to remember when shopping during a cruise? Stick to reputable stores. And listen to your shopping expert. They’ll give you their honest advice and make sure that you have the best experience on your cruise! Most importantly, buy what you love! Shopping’s meant to be fun and create memories of a lifetime.
