Things to do


Carnival Horizon’s amazing range of fun facilities makes it easy to enjoy action-packed days at sea. Thrill seekers will love the birds eye view made possible from the top deck SkyRide, a suspended cycle ride, or the SkyCourse ropes course, while SportSquare provides a sunny space to enjoy sporting favourites such as mini golf, pool, table tennis, or volleyball.

However, a cruise would not be complete without a few hours spent lounging by the pool and onboard Carnival Horizon, Carnival Waterworks is the place to be to make a splash on a sunny sea day or simply lay back on a comfortable sun lounger and watch the ocean float by.

For grown-up time out, the Serenity Retreat is reserved for adults only and ideal for enjoying a cocktail in the sun, with private cabanas, waiter service and stunning views all around.

If you’d like to pick up a holiday treat or a souvenir to remind you of the cruise of, or you’ve simply forgotten to pack that tube of toothpaste, the onboard shops have everything you need.

Spa and fitness

Those wanting to keep up with their fitness regime while on holiday can make the most of the ship's facilities. The Sports Square includes courts for football, volleyball, ping pong and basketball, as well as a jogging track. Additionally, there is a well-equipped, state of the art gym onboard, a range of fitness classes on offer, and even an outdoor gym where you can work out on your favourite apparatus while drinking in those beautiful sea views.

Be sure to reward yourself after working hard with time spent in the superb Cloud 9 Spa. Alongside the steam rooms, saunas, and plenty of loungers, it's possible to choose from a menu of luxurious treatments including body wraps, massages, and even acupuncture.
