Following a fun-filled homecoming celebration aboard the new Carnival Horizon featuring Carnival’s Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O’Neal and Miami HEAT legends, 400 travel agents and their guests departed Thursday, Sept. 20, on the ship’s inaugural cruise from PortMiami.

During the two-day cruise to Nassau, Bahamas, travel agents were hosted by Carnival business development directors and sales leadership team members. Events included a gala cocktail party, hosted dinners in the Meridian Dining Room and specialty restaurants, exclusive ship tours and exploration of Nassau.

Carnival Horizon returned to Miami Saturday, Sept. 22, to begin its new year-round schedule of alternating six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises.
