‘We can’t wait for our guests to experience Mardi Gras, a one-of-a-kind ship that is true game changer and continues the evolution of the Carnival vacation experience,’ says Ben Clement, Carnival’s SVP newbuilds.
‘I believe Mardi Gras will be a truly special ship. She will be the first to use our now proven LNG cruise ship propulsion system in North American,’ Meyer Turku CEO Jan Meyer said.
With the float-out Mardi Gras' six themed zones are also beginning to take shape with the interior build out of spaces like Emeril’s Bistro 1396 created by chef Emeril Lagasse and a groundbreaking new atrium concept with three-deck-high, floor-to-ceiling windows and moveable LED screens.
Next up, almost 1,000 suppliers are engaged in providing materials and complex services to fit out and complete the ship at Turku Shipyard.
After a delay in the delivery reported in December last year, Mardi Gras is scheduled for handover in late October and will enter revenue service on Nov. 14, from Port Canaveral, Florida.
