Carnival Details Horizon's First Programs

Carnival Cruise Line released the itineraries for Carnival Horizon's inaugural seasons, and the pattern is similar to that of Carnival Vista which entered service last year, except the length of time in each home port is adjusted for how the market is changing.

In a nutshell, Carnival Horizon will start out in the Mediterranean sailing from Barcelona, then move to New York for a Caribbean program, and ultimately it will move to Miami for year round Caribbean cruising. The big difference is that Carnival Horizon will be sailing in Europe just for a month, and New York sailings were expanded to the entire summer.

While that's going to disappoint some, Carnival is just following the market trends which say most of its core American market wants to cruise closer to home.
