Exhilarating Playlist Production Shows Among Array Of Entertainment Options Aboard New Carnival Horizon
New 133,500-ton Ship Set to Debut in Europe April 2, 2018
MIAMI, Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For its newest ship, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Cruise Line's talented in-house entertainment team has partnered with leading creative directors from Broadway, Los Angeles and London's West End to create three brand new shows that are designed to raise the bar on cruise ship entertainment.
Part of the line's popular Playlist Productions revues, the new shows make maximum use of the ship's sophisticated and interactive LED screens while showcasing the talents of the shows' performers to deliver unforgettable evenings of high-caliber entertainment.
Three new shows – Soulbound, Celestial Strings and Vintage Pop – will debut on Carnival Horizon when it enters service in April 2018. A fourth show, Amor Cubano: A Caribbean Dance Romance, has been brought to Carnival Horizon following an incredible debut on Carnival Vista last year.
"Carnival Horizon promises to be a spectacular addition to the fleet and we've made the entertainment and activity options equally spectacular with such an array of fun choices, morning until night," said Sarah Beth Reno, Carnival's vice president of entertainment. "Whether you're enjoying an amazing Playlist Productions show, checking out the hilarious entertainers at the Punchliner Comedy Club or participating in our legendary deck parties, our team will make sure your Carnival Horizon vacation is one you'll never forget," she added.
The Playlist Productions shows on Carnival Horizon include:
The new shows complement Carnival Horizon's vast array of entertainment offerings which include family-friendly and adults-only performances at the Punchliner Comedy Club and the family-favorite Hasbro, The Game Show, a live action game show incorporating larger-than-life adaptations of popular Hasbro games, along with an IMAX Theatre showcasing first-run blockbusters, documentaries and family favorites, and the multi-sensory Thrill Theater, the latter of which are part of the Carnival Multiplex entertainment concept.
At night, Serenity, the ship's outdoor adults-only retreat, is transformed into a South Beach-style club under the stars complete with spectacular lighting effects and a crowd-pleasing mix of popular music spun by one of Carnival's professional DJ's. Live bands along the promenade, solo artists in the new Smokehouse Brewhouse BBQ restaurant and brewery and the line's legendary deck parties will also be offered.
Carnival Horizon is set to debut April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from that port – then reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018.
Following its summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from the Big Apple, 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.
