Carnival Mardi Gras Cruises

Mardi Gras is the first of two “XL-Class” ships under construction for Carnival, with a second vessel to arrive in 2022. It will be the cruise line's first ship to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG), a form of fuel that reduces toxic emissions. At 185,000 GT and carrying 5200 guests, this sparkling new family ship will be the largest in Carnival’s FunShip fleet.

The name of the ship recalls Carnival Cruise Line's first-ever ship, which retired in 1993. Mardi Gras will feature six themed zones that combine eateries with entertainment: Three-storey Grand Central entertainment complex; a New Orleans style French Quarter; Summer Landing based on Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse Brewhouse; Italy-inspired La Piazza; Lido; and the Ultimate Playground on the top three decks, that includes 60m above the ocean the first rollercoaster at sea.)

Onboard Experience

  • Dining

    Dining on the Carnival Mardi Gras

    There are three principal dining rooms with a choice of fixed-time dining at two seatings, or flexible “Your Time Dining”. Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating at a variety of locations, and include a late morning Brunch.

    Kids have their own menu. Lido Marketplace is the expansive two-level poolside eatery, offering casual alternatives for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Adjacent is Guy’s Burger Joint and Blue Iguana Cantina (Mexican). Also on the pool deck is a pizza station, a deli, and Ji Ji Asian Kitchen. There are eight alternative restaurants (by reservation, with cover charge) serving steak, seafood, Asian, and Italian cuisine. The Chef’s Table, reserved for 16, is a special dining experience that includes a galley tour. Many casual restaurants provide choices of fast-food, BBQ, Mexican, and pasta. The ship offers 24-hour room service, ranging from basic continental-style breakfast fare to a variety of sandwiches and desserts.

Highlights

  • A bit of inside info: any time of year is the right time to cruise. But if you’re cruising on Mardi , check out the Summer Landing and enjoy all the flavors of summer. BBQ was designed by Guy Fieri and beer is brewed, oh, right over there. The pool and whirlpool are nearby.

  • Cool bars, amazing food, great folks, jazz clubs, funky little shops. Visit my French Quarter — which pays tribute to the Crescent City with all of these — and get a taste for NOLA.

  • The first stop on the tour is naturally going to be your first stop when you come cruise. Grand Central is designed to welcome guests and wow ‘em with high ceilings, big ocean views and entertainment. It sounds a little funny, but this high-energy spot is actually great for relaxing with a cup of coffee or a cocktail.

Cabins

Cabin categories (with many sub-categories) include interior staterooms, ocean view, balcony, and suites. Each of these categories has a Cloud 9 Spa variation, with complimentary access to all the spa accessories and fitness programs. Eighty percent of the cabins are outside; 80 percent of those staterooms have private balconies. Each cabin has a gift amenity basket in its bathroom. All staterooms include TVs, safe, hair dryer, telephone, controllable AC, bathrobes to wear during your cruise, and Carnival Comfort Bed with plush mattresses, good quality duvets, linens and pillows.

You’ll have 24-hour room steward and nightly turndown service. Standard cabins are a good size. Most with twin beds that can be converted to king-size bed. Good design and soft lighting add to a feeling of spaciousness in interior staterooms. Havana staterooms and suites (deck 8; for over-11s) are a ship within a ship, located near the Havana Bar & Pool, for members only. Larger are Havana Cabana suites. Cloud 9 staterooms and suites (decks 5, 17) come with many privileges. For families there are Family Harbor staterooms and suites (deck 4) that are attached to child-friendly areas, activities, restaurants and lounge. The Suites are larger depending on level, including large bathroom with twin wash basins, and a whirlpool bathtub. Suites qualify for priority check-in at port. There’s also a mini-bar or refrigerator in each suite. There are no single cabins, many wheelchair-accessible cabin, and many with interconnecting doors. Cabins sleep up to five guests. A room service menu is available 24-hours.)
