It seems that everyone I’m talking with says that the brand new Carnival Mardi Gras is the most exciting ship of 2021. Check out these Carnival Mardi Gras specifics:

 More Choices to Stay and Play

Mardi Gras brings its flair for fun to a number of destinations, in the Caribbean. Carnival has three brand new and distinctive concepts on Mardi Gras that are making big waves in the cruise world:

Carnival’s Excel Suites: The ultimate, luxury category of Carnival’s suites is debuting on Mardi Gras: the Excel Suites. These suites have exclusive, suite-level amenities, unlimited access to a new resort-style, and an open-air enclave called Loft 19™. Within Loft 19 guests will enjoy dedicated, concierge phone line, priority Main Dining Room time assignments, upgraded bathroom amenities and more.

Loft 19: Book an Excel Suite and enjoy access to one of Carnival’s new concepts, Loft 19. Located on the ship’s highest deck, Loft 19 is a secluded retreat designed like those of the world’s finest resorts. It has a full bar and private pool. Spacious cabanas have extras like fresh fruit, chilled towels, lunch delivery and concierge service. Carnival’s Excel Suite guests receive priority status when reserving a Loft 19 cabana.

Fun Zones: In addition to fan-favorite Carnival features, there’s even more to love that’s new on Mardi Gras. This ship is our first with distinctive zones that offer mini-onboard excursions to different “worlds” and experiences. How’s that for a ship we’re filling with the thrilling?

Here’s a quick preview of some fun highlights you’ll find across Mardi Gras’ zones:

  • The French Quarter zone is our nod to New Orleans, and it features Emeril’s Bistro 1396™, the first restaurant at sea from renown chef Emeril Lagasse (BAM!).
  • The Ultimate Playground zone features BOLT™: Ultimate Sea Coaster, the first roller ever on a cruise ship.
  • Summer Landing delivers casual summer classics any time of year, with BBQ from Guy Fieri at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse|Brewhouse, poolside bar The Watering Hole… plus Swirls soft serve (one of two on the ship!).
  • Lido is as delicious as fans are hoping, not only debuting the RedFrog Tiki Bar, but the first-time-fresh Street Eats, which serves up fast-good bites like empanadas, falafel and bao buns. Did we mention Big Chicken? (That’s Shaq’s place, and it’s amazing.)
