Havana Interior Staterooms

Carnival Cruise Carnival Horizon Havana Suite 1.jpg

Consider your Havana stateroom or suite your own island resort aboard Carnival Horizon. Most important is the exclusive location: near the Havana Bar & Pool. This pool is your members-only spot by day, and a fun-for-all hotspot when the sun goes down. Indoors, all Havana staterooms feature a unique décor, but step up to a Havana Cabana for an extra-large outdoor chill space that features a lounge-ready hammock chair. Step into a Havana Cabana suite for even more space, plus a luxurious rain shower.

Interior Staterooms

Carnival Cruises Carnival Horizon Accommodation Interior Stateroom.jpg

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, complimentary 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.

Oceanview Staterooms

Carnival Cruises Carnival Horizon Accommodation Oceanview Stateroom.jpg

These comfy rooms with a view let you take in the scenery as you sail toward your beautiful destinations. And how about those views? Nowhere on land will you find anything like ‘em. But the views aren’t all that matters here — Ocean View staterooms on Carnival Horizon are a little bit bigger than Interior rooms and most feature a supremely loungeable couch for those times when neither lying nor standing will do.

Balcony Staterooms

Carnival Cruises Carnival Horizon Accommodation Balcony Stateroom.jpg

Balcony staterooms are proof that while it’s great to be cruisey… on vacation, breeziness is a virtue too. And any time you’re in your well-appointed Balcony stateroom aboard Carnival Horizon, you’re just steps away from the outdoors by way of your private open-air oasis. Designed for kicking back al fresco, you’re in for some amazing ocean views… views so stunning you’ll just have to feel ‘em to believe ‘em.

Ocean Suite

Carnival Cruises Carnival Horizon Accommodation Ocean Suite.jpg

Get all the comforts of home and even a few extras — like a whirlpool tub! — with absolutely none of the hassles of home. Since your huge Suite aboard Carnival Horizon affords you VIP status, you’re in the priority line when getting on and off the ship. A Suite is the ultimate way to enjoy the ship, and the extra in-room comfort definitely goes a long way during your getaway. So 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.

Foodies, bring your friends: Carnival Horizon’s onboard dining spots offer palate-pleasing choices for everyone to savor.

Seafood Shack

Seafood Shack.jpg

A good seafood dish… mmm, quite the catch. However you like yours — roll, bowl or platter — Seafood Shack is Carnival Horizon’s place for you to cast your net. Imagine a seaside spot in New England, where the locals gather for great meals served with a bit of a breeze and a lot of a view. (That said, nowhere on land will you get 360-degree ocean views like ours!) Look to Seafood Shack for rustic favorites like Crab Cake Sliders, Lobster BLT, Fried Buffalo Shrimp, Snow Crab and more. Steer a course for Carnival Horizon... that’s where you’ll find this little shack by the sea, wherever in the world you happen to be!

ADDITIONAL COST

Main Dining

Main Dining.jpg

Here, your taste buds don’t get a vacation. Every night at dinner you’ll find your menu featuring a selection of favorites... and your future favorites, new and surprising dishes to try. Bring all your buds and gather around a big table for a festive sit-down dining event in one of two dining rooms. Eat early or late, or choose Your Time Dining and do dinner — plus a pre-dinner drink at the dining room’s full bar — whenever the time is right.

Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

Steakhouse.jpg

Haute cuisine meets atmosphere at Fahrenheit 555, a dining experience that stands toe-to-toe with some of the best steakhouses on land. Except this one’s at sea — aboard Carnival Horizon. Ours features your choice of steak cuts, lobster, lamb and more… and inside, there’s even a full bar that pours great pairings. Outside, there’s seating for dining al fresco. These are the building blocks of an amazing experience — delectable elements that combine with great service to offer an evening to remember.

ADDITIONAL COST

Bonsai Sushi

Bonsai Sushi 1.jpg

So maybe you’ve had sushi before, but have you tried it at Bonsai Sushi? This is Carnival’s onboard seafood-and-soy-sauce spot, and we think you’ll enjoy our latest location, aboard Carnival Horizon. Dine indoors or out amidst carefully-pruned bonsai trees, while enjoying a delectable menu with sit-down service. Rounding out the meal: soups, sides, sakes and desserts. So the next time you’re taking a stroll down the onboard promenade, stop at Bonsai Sushi for a roll, a box or maybe order a whole sushi ship — seaborne satisfaction for two.

ADDITIONAL COST

Chef's Table

Chefs Table 1.jpg

When you cruise on Carnival Horizon, make sure to reserve a seat at The Chef’s Table. At this small gathering of foodies you’ll indulge in a cascading series of delectable plates as our chef… honestly, kind of shows off a little! And that’s a great thing for guests gathered around the table for dinner. Close your eyes as you savor a series of courses for the main event, but prepare to have them opened during a galley tour — a behind-the-scenes appetizer event that offers a look at where all that magic gets prepared.

ADDITIONAL COST

JiJi Asian Kitchen

JiJI.jpg

A modern restaurant inspired by a millennia-old society, JiJi Asian Kitchen on Carnival Horizon serves up enticing dishes in an eclectic space that brings not just good food — but also good fortune — to the table. You’ll enjoy your meal among Asian prayer rolls and Mongolian-inspired fabrics in this unique culinary experience. JiJi offers a full-service menu featuring a mix of exotic and familiar dishes designed to challenge and delight your senses.

ADDITIONAL COST.

Cucina del Capitano

Capitano 1.jpg

At Cucina del Capitano on Carnival Horizon, who you’ve got gathered around the table is truly as important as what’s being served there. At our table you’ll enjoy delicious Italian favorites — we serve them family-style because we know that sharing large plates and sharing tales of your day’s adventures goes hand-in-hand. Speaking of which, our walls are adorned with old snapshots from our officers’ family albums, proving that the rustic Italian-farmhouse atmosphere definitely isn’t for show.

ADDITIONAL COST.

Guy's Burger Joint

Guys 2.jpg

We call Carnival Horizon’s onboard burger spot Guy’s Burger Joint… and that’s “Guy” as in Guy Fieri. We teamed up with him to design not just the burgers and fries, but to help bring in the kind of rustic atmosphere you’d find at a roadside burger shack somewhere off a coastal highway. All signs point to ambiance — and serious flavor — so try a burger dressed up the way Guy likes it, or take it off-roading… to the nearby topping bar, where you can make it your own.

BlueIguana Cantina

Iguana 3.jpg

BlueIguana Cantina is Carnival Horizon’s onboard taco-and-burrito place, featuring freshly-made Mexican faves. Because BlueIguana is all about you, we’ll make it with the ingredients you choose — tell us which meat, veggies, rice and beans you’re in the mood for — and then we’ll hand it over to you for the finishing touches. Here, that means a detour to the salsa bar to fire it up... or if you’re not feeling the heat, that’s cool too. Any way you dress it, expect a meal that’s suited up to satisfy.

SportSquare featuring SkyRide

Skyride 1.jpg

At SportSquare on Carnival Horizon, it isn’t just winning — but even just playing — that’s big fun. At SkyRide, strap in and zip safely around our suspended two-lane course bike course high above the deck. At The Clubhouse, try indoor activities like mini-bowling and pool... while outdoor soccer, volleyball and ping-pong are always just steps away. Try for a hole-in-one at SkyGreens, sink threes on the basketball court, and challenge yourself to amazing new heights at SkyCourse, our ropes course.

Havana Bar & Pool

Havana Bar & Pool 6.jpg

On Carnival Horizon you’ll find the Havana Bar & Pool. Good find — the pool’s an exclusive retreat to paradise by day, and the bar becomes a hot dance spot when the sun goes down. Grab a seat at the bar and order up handcrafted Cuban cocktails like a traditional Daiquiri or classic Mojito. This bar is just steps from the pool, whose ocean view and atmosphere mingles with the bar’s own, for a bit of that old-time Cuban resort flavor.

Carnival Multiplex featuring IMAX

Multiplex 5.jpg

Carnival Horizon actually features two movie theaters next door to one another, and we call the whole great big thing Carnival Multiplex. Behind door number one is an actual IMAX Theatre in all its huge-screen, huge-fun glory. And behind door number two? Thrill Theater lives there, and you’re invited to the 3D experience where jump-off-the-screen visuals are only the beginning of a, shall we say, truly moving experience.

Carnival WaterWorks

WaterWorks 4.jpg

For those who flock to waterparks looking for big ways to make a splash… can we suggest sliding on over to WaterWorks aboard Carnival Horizon? Get down to soaking with our classic spiraling waterslides, dual mini racing slides, stationary water toys and more. Speaking of more, let’s not forget Power Drencher, the giant dump bucket that packs in so many gallons that the area below had to be designated “the SplashZone.” WaterWorks is simply overflowing with wet options for your hydro-delight.

Serenity

Serenity 7.jpg

On Carnival Horizon, the Serenity Adult Only Retreat is a place to relax in complete peace, as smooth as a sea breeze through a palm tree. Serenity’s the place to do the stuff that’s so hard to do in everyday life — reconnect with your partner, finish that book… or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all. Adults take note: Serenity even has you covered with a chopped salad station that’s open on sea days, featuring a menu that starts with a grand choice of greens, and finishes with your selection from among tons of delicious ingredients.

Cloud 9 Spa

Cloud 9 Spa.jpg

True or false: cruises are a time for relaxation. Our answer: whether you’re all action all the time, or chill to the core, everybody needs a chance to take it easy! And nobody will find an easier spot than Cloud 9 Spa aboard Carnival Horizon. This is an oasis built from the ground up for relaxation, from a full complement of traditional spa services like massages, facials, body wraps to the carefully-designed climates of Cloud 9’s thermal suites… rooms swirling with moist or dry air, each heated very precisely. It turns out it’s true: anyone can find a reason to say “ahhh” at Carnival Horizon’s Cloud 9 Spa.

Lip Sync Battle

Lip Sync 3.jpg

The mic is off, but the battle is on… Carnival Horizon. Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, a stage version of the hit Spike TV series, features a series of competitions to see who can truly channel their inner superstar, and make the crowd go wild. Fight your way to the finals, where you’ll get music, lighting, props, choreographers and even backup dancers to elevate your performance. But the attitude — superstar, diva, rockstar — that is all you. So get up there and work it, twerk it, give it all you got. And if you turn out to be the ultimate mover-and-shaker, you’ll be taking home an exclusive gift!

Playlist Productions

Playlist 3.jpg

When was the last time you got up and grooved… at the theater? Playlist Productions takes songs you know and presents them like you’ve never known them before. Past favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring multi-talented performers absolutely bringing down the house with song, dance… and superstar attitude. With tunes from fan-favorite divas, crooners or rockers, each show has a different theme — and of course, a completely different playlist! Get ready for heartfelt emotions, straight-up bouncy fun, or something in-between — all types are welcome to get down here.

Cloud 9 Spa

Carnival onboard enrichment facilities include art exhibitions, dance classes and much more.

Art Exhibitions

Even if you don’t “know” much about art, of course you can still tell when you like something — who needs a refined palette to know when a piece is good? Carnival leaves snobbish cultural pretensions ashore, and makes art something that everyone can enjoy with a series of events designed to bring great art where it belongs — to the people. Take part in an art-themed battle of the sexes or check out showcases highlighting the best of, say, European artists or world-famous pop artist Peter Max. You can’t get any closer to great art… without buying it.

Dance Classes

When you’re on a Carnival cruise, there are plenty of places to bust out your moves when the mood strikes: in the dance club, at a deck party, in line for tandoori. Some people are born with all the right moves, but the rest of us need a little instruction to smooth the sharp edges off of ours. That’s why you’ll find a host of free dance classes that sail along with you, helping you make the most of your cruise… which is perfect because a cruise is just the kind of vacation that puts you in the dancing mood!

Cooking Demonstration

Learn to cook, Steakhouse-style from the team of chefs as they demonstrate the tricks of the trade used to make those multi-course dinners everyone loves so much. Carnival take the joy of cooking and transform it into a delightful hour-long presentation of kitchen skill and ingenuity… where taste tests are always included.

Tip: This fun-for-the-whole-family event fills up fast, so get there early.

Mixologist Competitions

Are you known back home as the cocktail captain; raising spirits, mixing it up and pouring it over ice… pleasing the palates of friends and family, alike? Come cruise and show them what you’ve got. The onboard competition may be stiff, but don’t let that shake you — stir up your signature concoction and make flavour worth a savour using spirits from all over the map. Throughout the cruise, everyone will be able to enjoy this winning cocktail at bars throughout the ship.  

Shore Excursions

They've hand selected the best local providers at every port of call so you can relax and focus on having fun on your shore excursions. They take care of all the details and wait for all excursions to return before departing. A detailed list of relevant excursions can be given by your travel operator.

Every Carnival ship caters for children of all ages and that includes Camp Carnival Night Owls, so you can enjoy an evening together without the kids.

Camp Ocean

When families cruise Carnival, even the smallest fish in the pond have a big, awesome time. Okay, so it’s actually way more than just a pond — it’s Camp Ocean. At Camp Ocean, 2–11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities and entertainment made for kids. Campers are put into supervised, age-based groups and each are given a cool marine-life label that’s sure to raise the sails on camaraderie at sea. The littlest little ones — ages 2 to 5 —join the Penguin colony and engage in activities like Musical Icebergs and Ocean Bingo… even learning a thing or two about buoyancy! The little-biggers, 6 to 8, are the way-cool Stingrays, who might be found enjoying Pirate Game Night, making sea salt art or even designing their own aquarium. The big fish are the Sharks — ages 9 to 11 — who really sink their teeth into playing Marine Life Trivia, creating a giant ocean mural, and scoring big with sea-themed volleyball or soccer. The counsellors, each with education or childcare experience, are there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time.

Circle 'C'

What does the “C” in Circle “C” stand for? Well, “chill,” “connect” and “cool,” just to name a few. It’s where young teens ages 12 to 14 go to hang out, meet new friends, and enjoy some pretty awesome activities like dance parties, games, outdoor movies and more, in the special Circle “C” area or around the ship. It’s all supervised by friendly and fun-loving counsellors who want your young teens to have the best vacation ever.

Club O2

Your parents deserve a nice vacation… but then again, so do you. So let’s let them go do their thing while you do yours. Where to? Club O2. Hang out and do stuff like watch movies, listen to music from this decade, play sports and video games, join karaoke jam sessions… maybe even have a pool party or two, all with other teens between the ages of 15 to 17.

Dr Seuss Bookville

Let’s use your imaginations — just think what would happen if Carnival took a normal library and put it through one of Dr. Seuss’s wacky contraptions… set to maximum fun, of course. It would probably come out looking much like Dr. Seuss Bookville, which as you can imagine, is exclusively aboard Carnival! The room is all decked out in bright colors, fun and whimsical furniture and even has some of your all-time favorite Dr. Seuss characters on the walls. But let’s not forget that this space is all about the books — the shelves are filled to the brim for hours of fun reading.

Night Owls

Think back — as a kid, was there anything better than times you got to stay up late? Even as an adult, nighttime is funtime, especially with all there is to do on your Carnival cruise. The perfect thing for you AND for your kids is called “Night Owls”! For a nominal fee, kids 11 and under can fun it up with others their age until as late as 1 a.m. They’ll enjoy music, activities, games and giveaways at supervised parties while you enjoy… whatever it is you do at night these days, all without a worry.

Camp Carnival

Camp Carnival offers tons of activities designed for children in three different age groups: 2 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 11 years. The counsellors, each with education or childcare experience, are on the clock making sure everyone in the small groups of kids are having fun. When it’s mealtime, kids get their own menus, with favourites like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, and more.

Teens Active Play

Everybody’s got their game — the one they’re just made to play — and teens are no exception. On a Carnival cruise, teens can show ‘em how it’s done back home in a wide variety of sports games and activities. Whether it’s big-fun classics like basketball and dodgeball, precision pastimes like foosball and ping-pong or get-up-and-move active video gaming, they’ve got as many ways to win as there are to play. 

Teens Digital Play

Teens know that gaming isn’t the antisocial activity it’s sometimes thought to be. Gaming is about cooperation and competition, not to mention the perfect way to sharpen and showcase skills like problem-solving and goal-oriented thinking. And — duh — having fun with others, which we do all the time at Circle "C" and Club O2. Have a seat, grab a controller and journey your way through vivid electronic worlds, whether you’re flying solo… or with a new friend as your ‘Player 2.’ 

Kids Active Play

To you a cruise may be just the time for chilling, but “relaxing vacation” certainly isn’t on a kid’s bucket list! Slow-time for you is go-time for them, and we’re glad to accommodate the little adrenaline junkies with a range of activities that get them up and, of course, having an absolute blast. Age-appropriate stuff like treasure hunts, obstacle courses, sports competitions and playground outings at sea are all a step up from similar stuff back on land… both because we’re talking Carnival here, and because uptime for them means well-deserved downtime for you.

Kids Digital Play

Parents can be concerned — and rightly so — about the time kids spend in front of a screen. But this time isn’t wasted — it’s just one of the ways that they learn about the world around them. Movies entertain by giving viewers a “slice of life,” fostering empathy as they show how people live. And video games have a host of benefits, from simple hand-eye coordination to promoting problem-solving skills and goal-oriented thinking, to of course the yin and yang of cooperative and competitive play, which helps youngsters learn to relate to one another. These activities aren’t all the kids will be doing — screen time accounts for just part of a balanced play-time that’s always age-appropriate, and definitely about more than just the high score.

ZSPA

There’s a lot to being a teen — they need to kick back, chill and sometimes even indulge just as much as adults… if not more! Carnival understand them, which is why they’ve tailored their onboard ZSPA treatments to their unique needs. ZSPA keeps teens looking their best from head to toe, with everything from trendy hairstyles to pedicures. Okay, so it’s not all about looking good — it’s about feeling great too. We make that happen, whether they want to do more for themselves with specialised fitness classes, or perhaps do a little less with relaxation and indulgence programs worth ‘ooh’ing and ‘ahh’ing about. So whether it’ll be your teen’s first time, or they’re already a seasoned spa pro, they speak their language at ZSPA. 

Arts & Crafts

To kids, arts and crafts is a fun way to spend an afternoon. To a parent, on the other hand, it’s something much more. From their earliest fingerpaintings onto macaroni art and beyond, the stuff they bring home is more than just stuff — it’s art — and every last scrap of it is nothing short of precious, the work of a master. Your Carnival cruise presents plenty of opportunities for your budding Picassos to express themselves, from refrigerator hangables to less traditional media like sand art, hand-decorated t-shirts, pirate treasures and beyond. You know, future living-room-museum pieces.
