carnival-horizon-info

Carnival Cruise Line has assembled a wide array of exciting and diverse itineraries featuring breathtaking destinations throughout the Mediterranean and Caribbean for its newest fleet member, Carnival Horizon.

Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Carnival Horizon will offer many of the hugely popular indoor and outdoor dining, bar, entertainment and activity options that debuted on Carnival Vista, currently the line’s newest ship.

Among those is a groundbreaking bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction called SkyRide, an IMAX Theatre, a massive WaterWorks aqua park offering lots of splash-tastic fun, and a microbrewery where several kinds of beer will be brewed on board.

A wide range of accommodations will also be offered, including spa cabins adjacent to the luxurious Cloud 9 Spa and offering exclusive access and privileges, extra-roomy staterooms in Family Harbor, and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms and suites along with a Cuban-themed bar and pool for the exclusive daytime use of guests in Havana accommodations.   A variety of unique dining and bar concepts and spectacular outdoor spaces found only on Carnival Horizon will be offered and revealed in the near future.

Port-Intensive European Cruises Round-Trip from Barcelona

Carnival Horizon is scheduled to make her maiden voyage April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean voyage operating round-trip from Barcelona and calling at Livorno, Rome (Civitavecchia), and Naples (Capri and Pompeii), Italy; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Corfu, Greece; Messina (Sicily), Italy; Valletta, Malta; and Cagliari (Sardinia), Italy – the first of four round-trip departures from this Spanish port.
