The 133,500-ton Carnival Horizon is well on its way to a 2018 spring debut and is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy.
The Carnival Horizon is scheduled to make its maiden voyage April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from this port. Carnival Horizon will reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018, according to a statement from Carnival.
Following its summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from Manhattan, Carnival Horizon will shift to Miami and kick off a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning Sept. 22, 2018. Carnival Horizon will also offer a special two-day cruise to Nassau from Miami Sept. 20-22, 2018.
