Mardi Gras

Sailing Dates:

Mardi Gras

When we launched our first ship, 1972's TSS Mardi Gras, we knew we were shaking things up. We made cruising a lot less stuffy, a bit less fancy, and the kind of fun everybody could enjoy.

Nobody expected this ship to change the cruise world, but... here we are!

And if it happened again, it wouldn't surprise us. In 2020 we'll be launching a brand-new ship with a familiar name. You guessed it: Mardi Gras. We 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.

We're building this new Mardi Gras to live up to that legacy, so start daydreaming now about what's to come! For starters, imagine the greenest cruise ship in North America, the first to be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas (or "LNG"). Add innovative entertainment features, like being the first ship ever with an onboard rollercoaster: BOLTTM. And give this thrilling ship of your dreams a unique look and layout - when designing this one we started from square one.

If you're as excited as we are, if you're just ready to choose fun both-feet-first... sign up today and you'll be the first to find out when the ship's on sale, plus you'll get an exclusive offer.

Everybody can enjoy Mardi Gras, sailing from Port Canaveral in 2020. Come on down!

Get ready to ride!

In another cruise industry first, Carnival Cruise Line's Mardi GrasTM will feature the first-ever roller coaster at sea when it debuts in 2020, providing an unforgettable and unique open-air thrill ride on the line's newest and most innovative ship.

Built by Munich-based Maurer Rides, BOLTTM : Ultimate Sea CoasterTM is a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline offering nearly 800 feet of exhilarating twists, turns and drops with riders reaching speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour.
