Explore Mardi Gras Onboard Activities

Carnival’s Mardi Gras offers passengers a host of revolutionary new activities as well as signature Carnival favorites. Thrill-seekers will flock to Bolt, the first at-sea roller coaster, which offers rider-controlled speed for a custom thrill, while visitors to the WaterWorks water park can enjoy refreshing fun on its many waterslides. Active travelers should check out SportSquare for a round of miniature golf or SkyCourse, the ship’s ropes course.

With its assortment of clubs, bars, and lounges, Mardi Gras also has a vibrant nightlife. Passengers with traditional tastes can pour their own brew at the ship’s beer station or find the perfect vintage at Mardi Gras’ wine bar, while cruisers looking to try something new can visit Alchemy Bar for a martini tasting. And for those who want to channel their own inner bartender, the ship offers mixology competitions, with the winner’s cocktail featured at onboard bars.
