Mardi Gras has even more to celebrate as she was recently equipped with Carnival Cruise Line’s iconic winged funnel – a veritable cherry on top of the line’s newest, largest and most innovative ship!

The funnel was installed at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland in advance of this week’s “float out” when Mardi Gras moves to another location to complete its interior and exterior outfitting, including the installation of BOLT, the first roller coaster at sea, the first seagoing restaurant of famed chef Emeril Lagasse, and a spectacular WaterWorks aqua park part of the Ultimate Playground outdoor recreation area.

Mardi Gras is scheduled to enter service Nov. 14 operating year-round seven-day cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral.
