Carnival Cruise Line has given an update and released a few construction photos of their newest and largest ship ever, Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras will debut in February 2021 and will be the world’s first cruise ship with a roller coaster.
Workers have installed nearly 800 feet of suspended track for BOLT, the first rollercoaster at sea, that will encircle upper decks and offer guests an exhilarating ride with dips and drops with breathtaking ocean views 187 feet above the water line.
All of the cruise ship’s more than 2,600 staterooms, including 180 suites across 11 different categories, have been installed as well, with interior outfitters putting the finishing touches on these unique accommodations.
Encompassing 21 decks, Mardi Gras will offer a groundbreaking new layout highlighted by Grand Central, a massive atrium with three-deck-high windows overlooking the sea.
Mardi Gras will debut on February 6, 2021 and sail week long cruises to the Caribbean from Port Canaveral.
