Mardi Gras returns
CARNIVAL Cruise Line has revealed its new ship to be delivered in 2020 will be called Mardi Gras, the same name as the line’s first ship, which entered service in 1972.
The XL-class ship will be the largest Carnival vessel constructed and the first in North America to be powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
Itineraries for the 5,200-passenger vessel will be released in Jan but Carnival previously announced it would be passed in Port Canaveral, Florida, which will feature a new terminal.
“The new Mardi Gras will follow the trailblazing lead of her predecessor, introducing features & technological innovations that have never been seen before on a cruise ship while setting a new standard for seagoing vacations,” President Christine Duffy said.
