Biggest ship ever for Carnival with traditional name
Carnival Cruise Line has a new ship in the Carnival-family: MS Mardi Gras, which it has officially taken delivery ahead of plans. The ship is the biggest ever build for Carnival Cruise Line. As early as 1972, there was the first Mardi Gras, with which the company’s success story began.
Highlights of MS Mardi Gras:
LNG: The ship will be the first American cruise ship to be powered by liquefied natural gas, setting an example in sustainability and efficiency.
„BOLT“ as part of the Ultimate Playground zone, is the first rollercoaster @ sea. The attraction features a suspended open-air circuit with electric motorcycle-style rides and the guests are able to control their speed using pedals.
One of the biggest spaces onboard is the „Grand Central Atrium“ which has different features, including bars, coffee shops and stores. Reinventing the atrium concept, it also offers entertainment that includes impressive performances in the air.
An adults-only lounge, the „Brass Magnolia“ is the center piece of the French Quarter zone. The venue was inspired by two of New Orleans icons: the city’s jazz nightlife and its historic Garden District.
Carnival calls the „Summer Landing zone“ the greatest chill spot @ sea. Located near the waterline, the area’s pool deck is complete with a poolside bar, jacuzzies and a big variety of lounge areas.
Another feature debuting on the new Carnival Mardi Gras is „Loft 19“ which is located on the ship’s top deck. Exclusive to guests staying in Carnival Excel Suites, the area has lounge chairs and its own infinity pool. For even more privacy, guests can rent one of the cabanas available in the space.
Carnival’s „Signature waterpark“ is even larger onboard of MS Mardi Gras. The attraction features three large-scale spiraling slides, a giant dumping bucket, twin racing slides and more.
Be ready for a challengeing cruise-experience aboard the NEW Mardi Gras.
