Carnival Horizon, Carnival Sensation and Carnival Vista arrived at Port Miami today, September 20. Carnival Horizon repositioned from New York, while Carnival Vista will reposition to Galveston TX.

Carnival Horizon’s arrival at its new year-round homeport was marked with a grand celebration highlighted by basketball-themed event featuring company’s Chief Fun Officer and NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, together with Miami HEAT legends Shane Battier, Glen Rice and Alonzo Mourning.

The festivities included the unveiling of a huge Choose Fun bumper sticker on the stern of the ship, as well as a flyover from Carnival AirShip - a 128-foot-long red, white and blue blimp which has been traveling the Southeast in order to bring awareness of new ship deployments in a number of key markets as part of Carnival’s monthlong Homeport Advantage campaign.

Following the 2-day cruise, Horizon kicks off year-round schedule of 6- and 8-day Caribbean cruises from Miami beginning September 22, 2018.
