Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras will be Carnival’s largest cruise ship ever at 180,000 gross tons when the vessel debuts later this year.

Mardi Gras is currently under construction at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland and will be the first cruise ship to have a roller coaster.  The ship will sail cruises to the Caribbean from Port Canaveral.  (View Itineraries)

Mardi Gras is scheduled to have her float out next week when the ship will touch water for the first time.

A game changer for the cruise industry, Carnival’s Mardi Gras will introduce a number of groundbreaking innovations, including BOLT, the first rollercoaster at sea, a new restaurant by legendary chef Emeril Lagasse, and six themed zones offering a variety of food, beverage and entertainment choices.

The cruise ship will also offer a wide range of accommodation choices, including more than 180 suites across 11 different levels.

Mardi Gras will also be the first cruise ship in North America to be powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), part of Carnival Corporation’s “green cruising” platform.
