Horizon and its essential twin Zenith are two of my favorate ships and I have had nothing but good experience on them. I did So. Carib on Horizon a few years ago. Rooms are nice size, not overlly large but big enough( there are no balconies as I'm sure you know.) Not an overlly large ship but it has everything.
The dining room is nicely laid out and does not give a big room feel. Service and food are typical excellent Celebrity.
Lounges, bars shops casino etc are nicely concentrated on several decks.This ship does not have a big atrium or multi storied area
as many of the bigger ships do.
There is a top deck lounge up front, with wonderful views (usually quiet during the day when the bar is not open, many people use this area for reading). Pool area has plenty of space around it . Lido buffets generally serve good food and no long lines. Show lounge is nicely set up and has good view from most anywhere. There are several decks on the stern that afford quiet
sunning space away from the noise around the pool.
In all other respects there is at least one of every kind of
amenity you would expect.
There is a lovely library/reading room and if you do the cigar thing,Micheals Club which is a cigar bar. There is a small martini bar and several other clubs or lounges. At night besides the shows there is generally music or entertainment in at least
3 places.There are several shops which carry just about everything you expect on any ship.Spa services are nice , gym good(not world class but gets the job done).
This is a great way to experience Celebrity on a nice ship of manageable size.
I hope you enjoy your cruise.
Was on the Horizon twice last year and enjoyed both cruises. It's a smaller ship than the newer ones but still has plenty to offer.
Bill's review hit everthing. One thing I really like about the smaller ships is that you don't have to walk all over the place to get somewhere, everything seems easy to get to.
You'll enjoy the ship.
MY HUSAND AND I AND TWO CHILDREN WENT ON HORIZON TO BERMUDA.LOVED THE FINE DINING AND STAFF. NO COMPLAINTS. I AM CONSIDERING TO TRY ANOTHER LINE BUT I REALLY DON'T THINK I WILL. YOU REALLY NEED TO ASK YOURSELF WHAT YOU ENJOY. SOME CRUISES YOU JUST DON'T NEED TO DRESS AS FORMAL. I PERSONALLY ENJOY THE TWO FORMAL NIGHTS ( ITS WHEN I CAN FINALLY GET ALL MY PICTURES FROM A PROF PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE FAMILY TOGETHER. I HEAR SOME OTHER CRUISES LINES DON'T HAVE THE EARLY AND LATE SEATINGS BUT CAN GO TO DINNER BETWEEN CERTAIN HOURS. ITS WHAT YOU ENJOY........ AGAIN, WE LOVED THE HORIZON AND I PERSONALLY THINK THE CELEBRITY LINE IS GOOD. HAVE FUN.....
