Carnival Horizon starts to take shape

Inaugural Cruise Bow

Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, the 133,500-ton Carnival Horizon, is pictured below at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, where it is being constructed in anticipation of its spring 2018 debut.


The 3,934-passenger vessel — the 26th ship in Carnival’s fleet – will offer many of the innovative indoor and outdoor dining, bar, entertainment and activity options that debuted on Carnival Vista.

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. Carnival Horizon will reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018.

Following its 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.
