Carnival's Mardi Gras is due for delivery from Meyer Turku in October

Carnival’s Mardi Gras floated out at Meyer Turku shipyard

The float-out of Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras was celebrated Friday at Meyer Turku shipyard. The 180,000gt cruise ship will be the largest in the Carnival fleet after delivery later in 2020.

‘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.

Themed zones

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.
