Carnival Cruise Line hulls are going red, white and blue fleetwide

Carnival Magic will be getting the new look during its current Marseille drydock
Following the enthusiastic reception to Mardi Gras's red, white and blue livery, this hull design will spread across the Carnival Cruise Line fleet.

The change will take place as Carnival prepares to celebrate its 50th birthday in 2022.

Carnival Magic up first

Carnival Magic will be the first ship to receive the new livery during its current drydock in Marseilles.

The design is highlighted by a navy blue hull inspired by officers’ formal uniforms along with red and white accents running the entire length of the 1,004-foot ship.  Additional vessels will receive the new livery as they undergo scheduled drydocks. Carnival Glory will be the second ship to receive the new look during work in June.

Coming back with a new look

'When we first saw the hull design for Mardi Gras, we knew it was something special and, particularly as we get ready to celebrate our 50th birthday, we’re delighted to incorporate this stunning livery as a signature exterior design element across our fleet,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said. 'As we look to resume sailing in the US, we’re coming back with a signature new look as well.'

In addition to the new livery, Carnival Magic will emerge from its docking on May 24 with an expanded casino with a greater variety of slots and other games, plus enhancements including refreshed finishes for the WaterWorks park and pools.
