Carnival Releases Schedule For Horizon’s Inaugural Season

Carnival Horizon.


Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship Horizon will sail a series of four-day Bermuda cruise out of New York when it debuts in spring 2018.  

Five “long weekend” sailings will depart New York on May 24, June 21, July 19, Aug. 16 and Sept. 13, all Thursday departure dates. 

Each sailing will feature a full day visit to Bermuda, which Carnival says is one of its more “sought-after” destinations. A full day visit will allow guests to take advantage of more of Carnival’s offerings on the island, including snorkeling, kayaking and water sports along with visits to landmarks such as Royal Naval Dockyard and Gibb’s Lighthouse, the oldest cast iron lighthouse in the Western Hemisphere.  

Horizon will officially arrive in New York on May 23, 2018. Before coming to North America, it will first sail a 14-day repositioning cruise from Barcelona on May 9, 2018.  

The new long weekend sailings will supplement the already-announced schedule for Horizon that includes eight-day Caribbean cruises departing from New York departing May 28; June 5, 13 and 25; July 3, 11, 23 and 31; Aug. 8, 20 and 28; and Sept. 5, 2018.

The ship will then move to its homeport to Miami in September 2018 where it will begin a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning Sept. 22, 2018 with stops in Amber Cove (Dominican Republic), San Juan and Grand Turk.

The ship will sport many of the same features of its sister ship, Vista, including SkyRide, an IMAX Theatre, Kaleid-O-Slide and the RedFrog Pub & Brewery. A number of spa cabins will also be offered onboard, giving guests exclusive privileges at the ship’s Cloud 9 Spa.  

New family cabins will offer extra room to larger groups in the ship’s family harbor and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms will give guests access to an exclusive Cuban-themed pool and bar.  

More information on the ship, including options that will only be available on Horizon, will be announced in the near future.
