Cruising: Carnival Cruises New Ship – Mardi Gras


Dear Guests,

Get ready to experience Carnival in a way you’ve ever experienced it before. Mardi Gras, their most innovative ship yet, is set to debut in Port Canaveral in 2020 and will be the first cruise ship in North America powered by LNG.

It is so exciting to announce that Mardi Gras will be their first ship to introduce themed zones! Throughout the ship’s 20 decks and in each of these six distinctive areas, you will find fun, memorable ways to create their own personalized vacation with dining, drinks, entertainment, recreation, and relaxation. Not to mention, accommodations on the ship will include more than 20 different stateroom categories and multiple levels of spacious and luxurious suites.

Here is a sneak-peek at the six-themed zones your clients can enjoy aboard Mardi Gras!

Grand Central   The French Quarter

Your clients will get a sense of wonder the minute they step onboard. Grand Central takes the traditional atrium concept to new heights with three-deck-high floor-to-ceiling windows and a bar overlooking the starboard side of the ship. It’ll be home to the first-ever dedicated Punchliner Comedy Club and the popular Piano Bar 88, with an expanded Bonsai Sushi and Bonsai Teppanyaki just steps away!



Themed after New Orleans’ culture, the French Quarter hosts an array of eateries, cool bars, and lounges for your clients to enjoy. This zone is linked via a two-deck-high promenade leading to a traditional New Orleans jazz club with live entertainment and hand-crafted drinks.

An Italian-inspired zone, La Piazza, is where your clients can enjoy authentic cuisine such as Cucina del Capitano, Pizzeria del Capitano, and a brand new Mediterranean-themed seafood restaurant. There’s also a bar where they can savor cappuccino by day or classic Italian cocktails at night, while roaming musicians keep everyone entertained!
