Carnival Cruise Line’s upcoming ship, Carnival Horizon, will get a new stateroom category called aft-view extended balcony cabin that will be exclusive to the Family Harbor area. Additionally, the 133,500-ton vessel will offer an additional 18 tropics-inspired staterooms within the popular Havana section.
New Stateroom Category
Like the other 86 staterooms within Family Harbor, the new aft-view extended balcony cabins will feature a colorful nautical theme and will be located adjacent to the Family Harbor Lounge, designed as the ultimate family hangout with large screen TVs and complimentary breakfast and snacks.
Located aft on Deck 6, 8 and 9, the new Havana staterooms will feature vibrant interiors reminiscent of the Cuban capital and will offer exclusive access to the Havana area which includes its own Cuban-themed bar and pool.
The new accommodations are reflected in Carnival Horizon’s deck plans which can be viewed at https://www.carnival.com/cruise-ships/carnival-horizon.aspx.
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. The ship will reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018. Following a summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from the Big Apple, Carnival Horizon will shift to Miami 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.

I can’t begin to describe what a big deal this is for families of 5. Because nearly all rooms are designed for up to four people, if you have 3 kids that means either a suite, or 2 rooms. I priced out over 50 different cruises with all of the major cruise lines and this room above (which I did find on a different ship as well) saves about $2000. That changes things from no way to hmm maybe we CAN afford a cruise.
Thank you Carnival!!!
