  1. I'm just curious about something, and thought I would ask those of you who have been on the Horizon since it has come out. I thought someone said there were not very many windows to look or view out at the ocean, etc. while cruising, where you could sit and relax. Is this true on the Horizon? I have done many ships, and probably for the last 10 years Carnival ships. I know on at least a couple decks "inside" where you could relax or read, they always had plenty of windows where you could look out as well.
  2. Now that your "officially" home, I want to say thank you for taking me and many others on your cruise of the Carnival Horizon, which the 8 of us plan to do the middle part of March. You mentioned about writing a review on the Norwegian ship you plan to take around Thanksgiving, which is just around the corner. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the cruise on the Norwegian, as not only my friend and I, but many others were very UNHAPPY with the Norwegian Star, which was a "brand new" (maybe that was the reason (???) ship. I won't go into details, but one thing that bothered me was in the Atrim area, they had PLASTIC flowers that you could buy at K-Mart for 10 cents a piece, how tactic that was! So cheap I thought they were! For me (the Norwegian may be different now ???), I like several options to choose from to see/do on the ship if I wish. There was hardly anything to see/do on this ship. We thought maybe it was just the two of us that were unhappy in many ways with this ship, but every time we passed the Guest/Purser's desk, we heard so many people complaining. 😞 Then, when we got on the flight to come back to Kansas City, we could not believe ALL the people that were complaining on our flight about the cruise we had just got off, so guess it wasn't just us.
  3. Something just dawned on me when see you getting ready to get off the ship. I believe this was when I took my first cruise of over 25 years ago (being blessed to do 19, and Horizon in March), and we were at dinner for the last time. One of the men said, "Back to Campbell's Soup again!" I thought.................oh how true that was.
  4. Oh my, this is almost a coincidence! You said your middle name is Sidney, but you go by Sid. Well Sidney was my brother's first name, and his "middle" name was James. So my brother's name was James, my husband's name was James (goes by Jim), and our first born twin's name is James, and we call him James. 🙂
  5. A belated Happy Birthday to you. I have 3 grown sons, so I am a "Mother Hubbard," when it comes to boys! 🙂 You go by the name of Sid? Does that stand for Sidney? The reason I ask this, my brother's name was Sidney.
  6. I may be 76 years old, but I LOVE pastel colors. 🙂 With all the pictures of the different buildings next to each other, with pastel colors, this I like! 🙂 I have been out of town a couple times, and am just "trying" to catch up with your review, and getting "ideas" of what the 8 of us might do on the Horizon in March. 🙂
  7. You said you had a wonderful nights sleep, I could have guaranteed that for you, or that is MY opinion! 🙂 The reason I say this, I have been on many ships, and Carnival's beds and bedding, I have found to be the best! In fact, this will seem funny, but I feel like a baby in a cocoon, when I'm in Carnival's beds. Even when (you thought it might be the movement of the ship) there is no movement of the ship when sleeping I feel this way. 🙂
  8. Yes, I hope you didn't start out with rain also. Here in KC, MO, we had torrential rain today, and I believe it is to be the same for tomorrow. 😞 When I seen the picture of the cemetery, that reminded me of when I was in either St. Thomas, or St. Kitts this year, and they call them "Underground condominiums. 🙂
  9. Thank you ALL for your suggestions.
  10. There are 8 of us that plan on cruising the Horizon in March next year. We will be flying into Ft. Lauderdale the day before. Any suggestion of something to see/do that does not cost a lot of money in Miami?
  11. Cruisegal70, thanks for replying back to my question.
  12. Yes, I hope you didn't start out with rain also. Here in KC, MO, we had torrential rain today, and I believe it is to be the same for tomorrow. 😞 When I seen the picture of the cemetery, that reminded me of when I was in either St. Thomas, or St. Kitts this year, and they call them "Underground condominiums. 🙂
  13. Did I read some place that there is a charge, and if so, what is the cost to see movies at the I Max?
  14. I am so looking forward to seeing/reading YOUR review of the Carnival Horizon. I just booked it for March 15, 2020 for my 3 son/3 d-i-l's and a friend. Since I haven't been to Jamaica in many a year, that is one reason why I picked this itinerary, only it is for 6 days. I have been on 19 cruises so far, and this is the 2nd one I will be taking them on. I know by seeing videos and pictures of the inside of the ship, I'm sure there are things I will not like, but I am not nit picky, and I just go with the flo. The main thing of a cruise is to have a good time! By the date you posted you are doing the cruise, it looks like you will be boarding very soon! 🙂
