About Horizon

Unlike Sovereign and Monarch, Horizon has gained some of her experience sailing under the guidance of Celebrity Cruises and not Royal Caribbean. Whilst she is operated by Pullmantur sister company, Croisières de France, she offers everything you would expect to find from a Pullmantur cruise just with French crew members instead of Spanish.

Speaking of the crew, Horizon’s fun and vibrant atmosphere is created through the passion that they have to ensure everybody is enjoying themselves. Whether you are relaxing by the pool or working up a sweat in the gym; they will do everything they can to offer the most enjoyable experience on the seas.

The public spaces are similar to those found on the Pullmantur ships. There are a variety of options when it comes to meals, numerous places to relax, and stunning views wherever you turn. In fact, 80% all the ship’s cabins have vistas of the sea, whilst 68 of the cabins have luxurious private balconies.

A recent refit has brought this classic vessel up to date without removing any of her charm, and spacious public areas include three restaurants, a theatre lounge, and a casino. Horizon spreads her time between the sunny Caribbean and the calm waters of the Mediterranean.
