Mardi Gras

The Mardi Gras: will be the latest addition to the Carnival Fleet in 2021. The largest vessel ever built for Carnival Cruise Line with 5.200 passengers is the first cruise ship to be powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas) and is not without reason called „Mardi Gras“: The original Mardi Gras started the success story of Carnival Cruise Line in 1972. The new Mardi Gras closes the circle of the 48 years of company history when it departs in July 2021, as the 24th ship of the fleet from Finnish Meyer Turku shipyard. The Fun Ships of Carnival Cruise Line offer a wide variety of onboard activities. From the exciting ropes course to the innovative Skyride, from the huge WaterWorks™ water park to Bolt™ Ultimate Sea Coaster – the world’s first ever roller coaster at sea on the Mardi Gras, about 50 meters above sea level! Carnival Cruise Line aims just as high with its critically acclaimed restaurant concept, such as the Italian Cucina del Capitano, Guy’s Burger Joint and a host of other international culinary offerings. This includes Emeril’s Bistro 1396™ on Mardi Gras, for which the top chef created Creole and French Haute Cuisine. However, there is no shortage of further culinary discoveries on the other ships in the fleet. In the buffet restaurants, passengers can dine casually and almost around the clock. In the à la carte main restaurants, guests are spoiled with a three course meal at no additional charge.

On a Carnival cruise your vacation starts in the atrium, and on Mardi Gras™ that's in the Grand Central zone. By the way... on this ship the atrium's different. Don't be surprised if you step inside and the first place you want to look is upwards. Up there are high ceilings that hint at even more fun living on the three decks above! But look around down here too... you'll find floor-to-ceiling windows that really bring in the ocean views. Of course you'll be back here throughout your cruise, taking a break with a nice cup of coffee or a menu of great food choices at JavaBlue™ Café, enjoying performances up on stage, or killing time fabulously at the Grand View Bar. Just wait until the sun goes down and the space slips into evening dress, transforming into an amazing show venue after dark! In Grand Central you're never far from great dining spots like Bonsai Sushi™ and Bonsai Teppanyaki™, plus feel-good entertainment like Piano Bar 88™ and The Punchliner Comedy Club™.
