Celebrity Cruise Line

MV Horizon

Your Rating:Three Stars
Reviewed by: Susan Baguisi
# previous cruises: 3
Date of Trip: February 4, 2000
Itinerary: Caribbean

The cruise itinerary was fine, we were mostly disappointed in the condition of the ship itself. Carpets were old, torn and soiled. The bedspread had a big patch in it. The PA system worked poorly as did the lighting.

People were stuck in elevators. The ship is in ill-repair and Celebrity should be ashamed.

Public Areas
Public areas were nice. The casino again was in ill repair. My friend ripped her dress on a chair in the casino and she told someone about it and all they did was remove the chair (it had a nail sticky out of it) and say ''thank you"-the least they could do is give you a drink or some credit-the dress was clearly ruined.

Food and Service
The food was very average, not as good as on the Zenith when we traveled to Bermuda in 1998.On the buffets it was the same food all the time, it actually started to get boring.

The cabins are always roomy on Celebrity. I would never chose a cabin in the aft again as the noise and vibration was terrible.

The shows are very average, we generally don't care for the shows anyway.

The ports were as follows: St Maarten, St Lucia, Barbados, Antigua and St Thomas. The shore excursions were very good and not terribly expensive. The only complaint I have is that when a ship is docking outside on the town, which happened to us in Antigua and St Thomas, at least one round trip to the town should be offered by the Cruise Line. It is not the passengers fault we were in the middle of nowhere, and all your books on the Caribbean tell you to be so careful you can't walk. Not to mention your itinerary tells you you are in town.

Who Goes
Over 70% of the passengers were elderly.
