Carnival Announces New XL-Class Ship, Mardi Gras

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Carnival Cruise Lines recently announced the construction of an all new ship in their XL-class. Paying homage to the first Carnival ship launched in 1972, the new shipped has been named Mardi Gras, and she’s set to debut in 2020.

According to Carnival, the name is so much more than a shout out to their beginnings, “… in cruising circles this name suggests innovation, and signals the start of something big. And it shouts ‘FUN!’ at the top of its lungs.” And if you know anything about Carnival, “fun” is their middle name.

Carnival Mardi Gras Rendering

This new ship is built on the concept of innovation. Mardi Gras will be “the greenest cruise ship in North America,” powered by a clean-burning engine fueled by liquid natural gas, or LNG. But the innovations don’t stop there. Most Carnival ships feature similar layouts and amenities, but the Mardi Gras is being re-designed from square one, giving it a custom look and layout that is sure to shake up the industry.

For more information on Carnival and the upcoming Mardi Gras, call The Cruise Web today at 1-800-377-9383 to speak with one of our expert consultants.

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Carnival Radiance will be undergoing $200 million worth of refurbishments set to debut in 2020. The new on-board restaurant, Big Chicken, is highly anticipated, adapting a land-based eatery owned by Carnival’s Chief Fun Officer, former NBA champion, Shaquille O’Neal.

In fast casual style, patrons will not be kept waiting as they place their order at one end of the counter and pick up right away at the other end.
