Carnival Cruise Line has opened reservations for Mardi Gras’ inaugural season in 2020. The new ship will sail six- to 15-day sailings throughout Europe and the Caribbean starting late August next year.

The ship will offer over 20 different staterooms categories and multiple levels of suites, more than any other Carnival ship. Its stateroom options include special options like Family Harbor, Havana Cabana and Cloud 9 accommodations, as well as a wide selection of suites, balcony, ocean view and interior staterooms.

Mardi Gras inaugural season will include:

  • A nine-day maiden voyage from Copenhagen to Southampton Aug. 31 – Sept. 9, 2020 calling at Kiel (Hamburg), Germany; Gothenburg, Sweden; Oslo, Norway; Rotterdam, the Netherlands; Zeebrugge (Brussels), Belgium; and Le Havre (Paris), France
  • A 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Southampton to New York Sept. 9-23, 2020, with stops at Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain; and Funchal (Madeira) and Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal.
  • A six-day cruise round-trip from New York to Portland, Maine and Saint John, New Brunswick Sept. 24-30.
  • A 15-day Carnival Journeys voyage departing New York Sept. 30, 2020 and arriving in Port Canaveral, Fla., on Oct. 15, 2020, calling at Amber Cove, San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Turk, positioning the vessel for year-round voyages to the Caribbean.

After a special eight-day Caribbean cruise out of Port Canaveral on October 16, 2020, Mardi Gras will begin its regular seven-day program on October 24, 2020. It will sail two different three-port, seven-day itineraries, alternating every week between eastern (San Juan, Amber Cove and Grand Turk) and western (Cozumel, Costa Maya and Mahogany Bay) Caribbean voyages.
