Review summary

So glad to be cruising again and Mardi Gras is an amazing ship, one week on her is not enough!


5 out of 5
Process was smooth and quick, only wait was in the first line to check in, then to the photographers if you wanted an embarkation photo, on to one more quick photo for facial recognition then keep walking to board the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

The balcony cabins on this ship seem much more narrow, in this particular configuration, twin beds, with beds being at entry and sofa at balcony it made it difficult to move around, there was not much room to move between the first bed and closet area. To bring luggage in we had to slide bed over to get it into the room.

The process to get off the ship was quickest and organized ever! Once into the terminal it was chaotic to get to luggage and then finding the correct waiting area for which shuttle being outside which was an extremely hot wait.
