Mardi Gras Overview

Carnival pays homage to the line's very first ship, 1972's TSS Mardi Gras, with the innovative Carnival Mardi Gras! Named for the original ship that took Carnival to the seas, Carnival Mardi Gras is an XL-Class ship that accommodates over 6,500 passengers. This ship boasts the very first roller coaster at sea, named BOLT: Ultimate Sea Coaster. For the first time ever, Carnival guests can speed down a track at over 40 miles per hours, twisting and turning high above the sea, with turns extending over the side of Mardi Gras. But, if adrenaline isn't your thing, feel free to just kick back and relax on the pool deck - there are FIVE pools onboard Mardi Gras. There is only one requirement on Carnival's ships: have fun! The delicious food that you'll find on Carnival Mardi Gras at restaurants like Bonsai Teppenyaki, Cucina del Capitano, and Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse Brewhouse offers plenty of variety for even the most picky eater in your family! If you want to take the kids to Mardi Gras, this one is definitely more family-friendly. Trust us - a Carnival Mardi Gras vacation is the perfect family getaway!

Before you dive into all the highlights of Mardi Gras - stop! For the first time aboard Mardi Gras, Carnival has divided their ship into 6 distinct zones, each offering new and unique experiences! When you first embark on your vacation on Mardi Gras, you enter the ship in the iconic Grand Central Zone, highlighted by the atrium with towering ceilings, a norm when sailing on Carnival, the Grand View Bar and the JavaBlue Cafe! The next featured zone onboard Mardi Gras is the French Quarter, inspired by New Orleans. Spending time here will help define your vacation as "Big" and "Easy", especially if you spend time at the Fortune Teller Bar on Mardi Gras. Your next zone is located at the aft of the ship and a favorite for sunbathers, but you can read more about Summer Landing on Mardi Gras below! Just like the French Quarter, the La Piazza Zone aboard Carnival garners inspiration from lands afar with an entire portion of the Mardi Gras ship dripping in Italian culture - mostly food and drink in places like the all-new to Mardi Gras Piazza Panini and the Bar della Rosa. The Lido Zone is all about relaxation - featuring a relaxing pool, nearby snacks and plenty of lounge chairs for the whole family. Speaking of the family, our bet is that the kids will spend most of their cruise on Mardi Gras in the Ultimate Playground Zone home to a rollercoaster and waterpark - more details below! Six zones equals SIX TIMES THE FUN when you're sailing on Mardi Gras! Below, you'll find just a couple of our very favorite things to do while sailing on Mardi Gras:
