I am going on the "Horizon" in a couple of months. I sailed her when she came out back in '91. Was wondering if anyone has sailed on her in the last few weeks or months that could advise re/ the upkeep. wear, tear and overall condition of the ship.
Both Horizon , and her sister Zenith, are in remarkably good condition. They seem to have been well taken care of. I was on Horizon and Zenith in the last few years going to Bermuda, and have been in contact with many who have also.
I was on the Horizon about 10 months ago and she still looks great to me. I, too, was on her in 1991, as well as a few times in between and I continue to prefer this size ship above all of the newer megaliners. Her cabins are showing some age and are in need of some new bedspreads, curtains and carpet, but the public rooms, lounges, etc. and the exterior are lovely and very well kept. Enjoy!!
Just came off the Horizon on back to back cruises 10/20 and 10/27 and the ship is in good condition. They refurbished the ship in 1998 and added a Martini bar, a T-pool next to the regular pool and the cova cafe from what I understand. The plumbing needs to be updated but the ship otherwise is in good shape. We just absolutely loved it!
