Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship Carnival Horizon is on schedule so far during construction at Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.
The 3,934-guest vessel is the 26th in Carnival’s fleet, and will offer lots of indoor and outdoor dining, bar, and entertainment options. A first for the line, the onboard WaterWorks aqua park will be Dr. Seuss-themed. Other features include the popular SkyRide attraction that debuted aboard Carnival Vista, as well as an IMAX movie theater, large Family Harbor cabins, tropical-inspired Havana staterooms, and Cloud 9 Spa accommodations.
Carnival Horizon is scheduled to make her maiden voyage on April 2, 2018 with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona. On May 9, the vessel will reposition to the United States with a 14-day transatlantic crossing to New York. Following its summer schedule of 4-day Bermuda and 8-day Caribbean departures from the Big Apple, Carnival Horizon will shift to Miami for year-round 6 and 8-day Caribbean cruises, after operating a special two day Nassau cruise from September 20-22, 2018.
