It’s A Long Shot, But We’re Going to Try

Hey Friends!

As you may or may not know, we just got back from our very first Carnival Cruise. It was on the Carnival Horizon and we had the best time ever. While on the Horizon we ended up finding out about Fathom excursions and we tried our very first one.  Now I’m forever changed.

You can see our first Fathom trip, The Hands on Chocolate Experience at Chocal here:

This was our first experience with Fathom Travel and Carnival Cruises. It was magic. It was life changing. All we want to do is more. Impact Travel has changed us forever.

Leaving the Carnival Horizon and Going Back to Orlando | Carnival Horizon Cruise Vlog Day 09

Today is disembarkation day on the beautiful Carnival Horizon. Sean and Stef start the day super early to watch sailing into New York City. The sail in to New York City is unlike any other sail in ever. It starts with sailing under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, sailing past the Statue of Liberty, sailing past the World Trade Center, Manhattan, Times Square and a sharp turn into Pier 88. After docking, Sean and Stef take priority disembarkation and head back into New York City. After a quick lesson in sidewalks vs bike lanes, Sean and Stef head to a cab stand and drive to JFK airport. Then it’s a quick 3 hour flight on Jet Blue and back home to Orlando where Sean and Stef are greeted by their loving gato family. This was by far the best cruise that Sean and Stef have ever had.

Grand Turk in a Golf Cart | Carnival Horizon Cruise Vlog Day 04

Today is the first port day on this Carnival Horizon cruise. After getting off the ship, Sean and Stef head out to explore what Grand Turk has to offer. And what better way to explore the island than with a golf cart? Yep! Watch Sean and Stef drive all around Grand Turk on a golf cart. Sean and Stef visit the Grand Turk Lighthouse, see some wild horses and donkeys and get caught in a freak rain storm.

After a fun filled day in Grand Turk, it’s back on to the Carnival Horizon for an afternoon of great food at Guy’s Burger Joint and amazing cocktails & pool time in the Havana Bar. After a relaxing end to an amazing day, the Carnival Horizon pushes off from Grand Turk and it’s once again night time on this amazing ship. Sean and Stef quickly get ready for the evening and start off the night with unbelievable drinks at the Alchemy Bar. After a round of fantastic craft cocktails it’s off to dinner at the Italian restaurant Cucina Del Capitano. The Carnival Horizon has some truly fantastic specialty dining. The evening plans for an outdoor deck party were canceled due to rain so it’s a nightcap at the Alchemy Bar. A perfect end to a perfect day aboard the beautiful Carnival Horizon.
