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.

Earlier this week, the first steel was cut to mark the beginning of construction on Carnival Cruise Line’s newest class of ship. The hull and livery design were also revealed, using the iconic red, white and blue colors that continue the legacy of Carnival being “America’s Cruise Line”.

This will be the largest Carnival cruise ship ever constructed, set to be delivered in 2020.  A second XL ship will begin construction in 2020 and to be completed in 2022 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Carnival Cruise Line’s founding.

“This new ship promises to be truly special, from its groundbreaking technology and one-of-a-kind features to its distinctive livery and hull design that is both timeless and forward-thinking while paying tribute to our nearly 50-year history of making wonderful vacation memories for our guests,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
