Carnival Cruise Line
General

In a nutshell... we're all about fun vacations at sea and ashore! A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite our guests to come as they are, and we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world's most beautiful seaports.

Our 26 ships operate 3- to 24-day voyages, departing from every coast in the U.S., as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and Barbados. While we're best known for Caribbean cruises, we sail to other exotic and amazing destinations like Mexico, Alaska, The Bahamas, Europe, Hawaii and the Far East. Additionally, Carnival Cruise Line Australia now has three ships, and offers cruises from Sydney and Melbourne to New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Singapore.

Carnival Cruise Line proudly supports important causes like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Ship
Mardi Gras
Overview

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!

Dining

Emeril's Bistro 1396

In 2020 Mardi Gras will set sail with Emeril Lagasse's first-ever restaurant at sea: Emeril's Bistro 1396TM. Everybody knows about Emeril's love for Creole cuisine, and now you'll enjoy the authentic bayou flavors and fun New Orleans is known for on your vacation. If you haven't had the pleasure, we're talking about fried oysters, duck & sausage gumbo, po-boy sandwiches, fresh ceviche and more. We're serving up Emeril's faves all day... and because flavors this big don't just sleep in, we do some great ones for breakfast too! Raw bar, incredible desserts and Crescent City atmosphere round out the experience.

Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse

With choices like brisket, sausage, baby back ribs and dry-rubbed chicken, our pros do the smoking right there over hickory wood before serving them up at your table. You're in Guy Fieri's house - Mardi Gras has Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse | Brewhouse. Now about the brews: this house of BBQ tradition doesn't just satisfy your hunger - you'll also enjoy our all-new, exclusive line of Parched PigTM craft brews. There's a smoked porter, a farmhouse ale, a hoppy IPA and a toasted amber, all brewed just feet from your table. Tip: Come by and check out the free menu at lunchtime, plus live music and lively atmosphere all day.

Bonsai Teppanyaki

It's a meal, a performance, and it's definitely unforgettable. The Bonsai Teppanyaki experience is set to delight guests aboard Mardi Gras. Take a little time out of vacation to sit down to a selection of tempting appetizers, before your chef prepares the main course featuring selections of meats, tofu, fish, shrimp or lobster... right at your table. In the teppanyaki tradition - and Carnival's tradition of fun - expect an interactive, satisfying meal full of surprise and delicious delight.

Seafood Shack

A good seafood dish... mmm, quite the catch. However you like yours - roll, bowl or platter - Seafood Shack is Mardi Gras's place for you to cast your net. Imagine a seaside spot in New England, where the locals gather for great meals served with a bit of a breeze and a lot of a view. (That said, nowhere on land will you get 360-degree ocean views like ours!) Look to Seafood Shack for rustic favorites like Crab Cake Sliders, Lobster BLT, Fried Buffalo Shrimp, Snow Crab and more. Steer a course for Mardi Gras... that's where you'll find this little shack by the sea, wherever in the world you happen to be!

Activities and Entertainment

Family Feud Live

The show has been delighting viewers at home for generations, but you've never had the chance to buzz-in on a cruise ship until Family FeudTM Live hits Mardi Gras. On every sailing we'll be hosting four unique games on an authentic Family FeudTM set... right down to the iconic Face-Off podium, plus all the excitement of Fast Money.

Family FeudTM Live will be emceed by none other than your cruise director, so if you're game, sign up your team of five for an audition... and make sure they bring that Family FeudTM spirit. If you don't make it, join the studio audience for the evening, where you still may get a shot at the "Insta-family" version of the game!

BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster

Get ready to ride!

Aboard Mardi Gras you'll meet BOLTTM: the fastest - and first! - rollercoaster at sea. Strap in and zoom your motorcycle-style speed machine around an open-air course high, high above sea level. You know how on most rollercoasters... actually, never mind.

Forget other coasters because this all-electric thrill ride puts you in the driver's seat. That means you actually get to control how fast you go, so hit the gas and try for the fastest time, go for the biggest thrill - plus some amazing 360oocean views! And for the folks who choose to chill: go light on the pedal, and this just might be the coaster for you!

Havana Bar & Pool

On Mardi Gras you'll find the Havana Bar & Pool. Good find - the relaxation pool is an exclusive retreat to paradise by day, and the bar becomes a hot dance spot when the sun goes down. Grab a seat at the bar and order up a handcrafted Cuban cocktail like a traditional daiquiri or classic mojito. This bar is just steps from the pool, whose ocean view and atmosphere mingles with the bar's own, for a bit of that old-time Cuban resort flavor.

Serenity Adult-Only Retreat

Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement... but you could easily forget, because when you're at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else - reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.

Zones

Grand Central

Don't be surprised if you step inside and the first place you want to look is upwards. Up there are high ceilings that hint at even more fun living on the three decks above! But look around too... you'll find floor-to-ceiling windows that really bring in the ocean views. Of course you'll be back here throughout your cruise, taking a break with a nice cup of coffee, enjoying live music up on stage, or killing time fabulously with a handcrafted cocktail in between evening shows.

French Quarter

What inspired this place is no less than New Orleans itself... and if all this talk of NOLA has you half as hungry as we are, you'll be pleased to hear that our French Quarter is lined with bars and eateries worthy of their namesake, spots serving up everything from small plates to classic Hurricane cocktails straight from the bayou. For one thing, there's the spectacularly, authentically delicious Emeril's Bistro 1396TM - developed in partnership with yes-that-Emeril. Just steps away there's entertainment inspired by the world-renowned Crescent City.

Summer Landing

Go ahead and call Summer Landing "the greatest chill spot at sea"... and we'll be right there with you, any time of year! Know what goes great with chilling outdoors? BBQ, so we're building a Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse | Brewhouse into this zone to make sure it always tastes like summer here, courtesy of freshly-smoked faves designed by Guy Fieri. You wouldn't be surprised that the pool and whirlpool aren't far, but would you have guessed that there's even original Parched PigTM beers brewing just a few feet from the tap? Expect the funexpected!

La Piazzal

La dolce vita is within reach at La Piazza... and we'd know, with all the Italian seafaring spirit that's literally driving the ship. This zone stands for flavor, and it starts with Cucina del Capitano, which brings your party together for an evening of Italian favorites served family-style, while Pizzeria del Capitano makes delizioso happen for you 24 hours a day atop a base of imported Italian flour and fresh mozzarella. Atmosphere is everything here, so roaming musicians provide an authentic soundtrack to your time in La Piazza. Mardi Gras debuts a new Mediterranean spot specializing in seafood, plus there's even a bar where you'll sip authentic espresso drinks by day and classic Italian cocktails when the sun goes down.

Lido

If you've cruised with us before, you know Lido... but aboard Mardi Gras this poolside zone features even more delicious and fun ways to spend a day. Everybody looks to Lido for variety, and with tons of casual dining spots you'll discover new experiences among the flavors that keep our guests coming back. Take in a Dive-In Movie at the pool and you're not far from signature Carnival favorites like Guy's Burger Joint, the New England-inspired Seafood Shack, and BlueIguana Cantina taco spot. And for folks hoping we haven't forgotten: yes, Lido is absolutely home to fan-favorite Swirls, the free soft-serve spot cranking out the cool 24 hours a day!

The capital of Gran Canaria is a delight for strollers with areas such as Ciudad Jardin, where beautiful gardens surround the Canarians' homes, and the old quarter of Vegueta, where Christopher Columbus stopped in 1492. Explore the island's beautiful landscape; the highlight is a visit to the Guanches' caves, where the island's primitive inhabitants once dwelled.

Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal
City Ponta Delgada

A hidden treasure, the remote Azores islands lie 900 miles west of Portugal and 2,110 miles east of New York. Ponta Delgada's stunning Portuguese architecture and luxuriant, flower-filled parks make walking through this city a joy. Venture out of the city and prepare yourself for some of the most beautiful scenery you have ever witnessed. Dramatic rocky cliffs descend to pristine bays, where you may find a virtually deserted stretch of gorgeous beach. Extinct craters are filled with turquoise waters, and surrounded by gardens of hydrangeas and greenery that thrive in the rich volcanic soil.
