Mardi Gras will be delivered in late October and Carnival has announced that the ship will enter revenue service on November 14, 2020 from Port Canaveral, Florida.

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 markets and feature many other sophisticated technologies – including BOLT, the first roller coaster onboard a ship

stated CEO of Meyer Turku Jan Meyer.


As for Port Canaveral, it is investing in infrastructure and will soon welcome a new LNG bunkering barge, the Q-LNG 4000, which will refuel the Mardi Gras, the first fully LNG-fueled cruise ship in North America.

Carnival Cruise Line decided to name the ship Mardi Gras after its first.
