Mardi Gras officially name in ceremony atPort Canaveral by Kengines

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Mardi Gras

Carnival cruise fans must sail on this masterpiece of a ship. Keep an open mind like we did and then choose your favorite class of ships like we did. We sailed on the Elation the following week and appreciated what they both represented. Very disappointed with the lack of appreciation of platinum and diamond members. The VIFP meant very little on this ship with only a glass of dry wine or soft drink. The VIFP pin had to be chased down in the Pics area along with a cheap luggage tag. The pin my wife lives to collect had no ship designation or the VIFP logo.

Ship: Mardi Gras

Our family of 8 had a fantastic time and will certainly cruise again. There were some challenges along the way but we were on vacation. The Carnival Cooking classes are a great new addition to the ship.

Enjoyed the new Mardi Gras, loved the layouts and restaurants. Serenity was fantastic. Bathroom was really small in our balcony room. Arrive early for Center stage entertainment, filled up fast.

Very large ship that is too small by CrazyChick1952

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Mardi Gras

Too small for full capacity. We sailed at 70 percent and pools and other venues were very crowded. There is no decor, not even Mardi Gras beads anywhere. I expected to see Mardi Gras decor, but nothing. MDR had carpet from '70s with harvest gold and avocado green bubbles, '50s turquoise curtains and 2000s navy blue chairs. You have to download the Hub app and everything is on that. It's your menus, it's your acct. info, it's your entertainment guide...if you don't like having to carry your cell phone with you everywhere, you won't be happy. I suggest trying the other restaurants besides the MDR. The Italian is very good as well as Pig and Anchor and Chibang. Pizza is the only 24 hour food besides ice cream. Of course Guy's Burger Joint shouldn't be missed. This was my 45th cruise and I really was not that impressed with the ship. The shows were excellent as well as the bands around the ship. The comedians were okay to excellent; we had six different ones and Spike Davis was the best and funniest. Our cabin was extremely small as well as the bathroom. You have to be a contortionist to reach the toilet paper. I'm not a big girl, but it was hard for me in that bathroom! It's one of those ships you'll have to try for yourself and form your own opinion.

Ship: Mardi Gras

Love this ship and definitely will book her again. The ports of call are limited due to her size and many ports are still restricted due to COVID.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Mardi Gras

It was so nice to cruise again after having 2 cancelled cruises last year due to COVID. I really enjoyed the Mardi Gras. All of the staff were friendly and helpful! Would definitely sail on the Mardi Gras again!! The Fortune Teller bar is a must!!! Try the Golden Galaxy and the Bohemian Treat. The Golden Galaxy was my favorite drink on the ship!
