In 1972 when Carnival launched their first ship Mardi Gras, they made cruising a lot less stuffy, a bit less fancy, the kind of fun everybody could enjoy. Nobody expected this ship to change the cruise world, but. In 2020 they'll be launching a brand-new ship with a familiar name. You guessed it: Mardi Gras. They aren’t just paying homage to our first ship — in cruising circles this name suggests innovation, signals the start of something big. And it shouts “fun!” at the top of its lungs. They're building this new Mardi Gras to live up to that legacy, so start daydreaming now! For one thing, this ship introduces Zones — six themed areas packed with brand-new experiences for eating, drinking and spectacularly getting down to fun.
Let us help you start planning your crusie on the New Carnival Mardi Gras!
