Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Carnival Horizon will offer many of the hugely popular options that debuted on Carnival Vista.

Among those is bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction called SkyRide, an IMAX Theatre and a WaterWorks aqua park featuring a water tube slide called Kaleid-o-slide.

Carnival also promises a variety of unique dining and bar concepts, as well as new outdoor spaces, found only on Carnival Horizon. Further details will be revealed in the near future.


A wide range of accommodations will also be offered similar to those on the Carnival Vista, including spa cabins which offer exclusive privileges at the luxurious Cloud 9 Spa, extra-roomy staterooms for families in the Family Harbor, and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms and suites, which  include exclusive daytime access to a Cuban-themed bar and pool.

Carnival Horizon, promises to continue to expand those themes to provide guests of all ages with the ultimate fun vacation with Carnival!” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
