Carnival Cruise Line has announced that its entire fleet will receive a dramatic new hull design. A new red, white, and blue hull artwork will soon be a trademark feature on all Carnival ships as the line prepares to celebrate its 50th birthday in 2022. This design initially debuted on Carnival’s newest ship, Carnival Mardi Gras

According to Carnival, this new design pays homage to maritime tradition and patriotic colors. The navy coloring is inspired by officer’s uniforms and features red and white accents that will span the entirety of the ship.

"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," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  "As we look to resume sailing in the U.S., we're coming back with a signature new look as well!"

Oh wait, nevermind! Those are the Royal Carribs I'm thinking of. Sorry, but still boring colors!

Nope! Darnity! I meant NORWEGIAN! Ugh! To be fair: with the party vibe on Carnival, I'm not surprised I thought their ships were as colorful as Norwegian's. PS: I've only sailed Celebrity.
