Carnival Cruise Line's new Carnival Horizon will sail a series of four-day cruises to Bermuda from the cruise port in Manhattan. Carnival Horizon comes to New York in spring 2018, part of the ship's inaugural season that also includes the ship's first voyages in Europe from Barcelona.
Carnival Horizon is a sister ship to Carnival Vista, which I sailed in late 2017. Horizon will look much like Vista, which has tons of cool things to do onboard.
Once Carnival Horizon arrives to the United States, it will sail spring and summer to Bermuda and then head to its homeport in Miami for cruises to the Caribbean.
The four-day "long weekend" Bermuda cruises will depart on Thursdays and feature a full-day visit to Bermuda where you can relax on the island's legendary pink beaches, enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and other water sports, as well as take excursions to historical landmarks such as the Royal Naval Dockyard and Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, the oldest cast iron lighthouse in the Western Hemisphere. There will be five four-day Bermuda cruises: departing May 24, June 21, July 19, August 16 and September 13, 2018.
"Bermuda is a beautiful and sought-after destination, and what better way to visit this breathtaking island paradise than on the spectacular Carnival Horizon," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

Carnival also has revealed an awesome Alaska adventure lasting 14 days on Carnival Splendor. This is perfect, because if you're going to go to explore the Final Frontier, one week is not enough. The longer the better, and a two-week voyage gives you the chance to experience so much more in this incredible natural wonderland.
As part of its expanding lineup of Carnival Journeys, longer-duration cruises, Carnival Splendor will sail round-trip from Long Beach, Calif., and feature visits to sites such as majestic Hubbard Glacier and a day-long visit to Icy Strait Point, an unspoiled wilderness area offering some of Alaska's best whale and bear watching.
The voyage will depart Long Beach and August 25 and return September 8, 2018, and features the spectacular destinations of Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau and Sitka, along with a day-long stop at Victoria, British Columbia.
In addition to unique cultural opportunities and historic landmarks, each of these ports offers natural wonders like calving glaciers, scenic fjords and native sea and animal wildlife. A wide variety of shore excursions -- from helicopter flightseeing and rainforest canopy tours to hiking, canoeing and kayaking expeditions, and alpine lake snorkeling -- will also be available.
