Everyone who votes in the British Cruise Awards 2019 will have the chance to enter our prize draw to win a Carnival cruise on a brand new ship featuring the first-ever roller coaster at sea.
Launching in August 2020, Mardi Gras will be Carnival Cruise Line’s most innovative ship ever, and the ultimate playground at sea for fun seekers of all ages.
Powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), Mardi Gras will offer an extensive array of popular Carnival guest favourites along with new exciting experiences highlighted by six themed zones. Throughout the ship’s 20 decks and in each of these distinctive areas, guests will find fun, memorable ways to create their own personalised holiday with dining, drinking, entertainment, recreation and relaxation options.
The accommodation on Mardi Gras will include more than 20 different stateroom categories and multiple levels of spacious and luxurious suites. Mardi Gras will also include the most expansive open decks on any Carnival ship and a spectacular atrium that will serve as the hub of the ship as well as a stunning focal point where guests will be welcomed on board.
However, the most exciting and innovative onboard feature will be BOLT, an all-electric
roller coaster that will allow two riders in a motorcycle-like vehicle to race along a track 187 feet above sea level, enabling guests to experience the sea in an exciting new way with breathtaking 360-degree views.
BOLT will begin with an action-packed launch where riders can achieve race car-like levels of acceleration and will culminate with a high-powered hair-pin turn around Carnival’s iconic funnel. Riders’ speeds will be posted after the race, and just like land-based roller coasters, guests will have their photo taken during the ride for a memorable keepsake. And since guests choose their own speed, each ride is unique.
After all that excitement, where better to chill out than at Loft 19, a secluded retreat modelled on the world’s finest resorts with full bar service, a private pool surrounded by sun loungers and spacious cabanas available for rent. Cabanas will be fully stocked with beverages, plush robes and chilled towels, fresh fruit and will include lunch delivery and dedicated concierge service.
Mardi Gras will offer a diverse schedule with six- to 15-day sailings throughout Europe and the Caribbean beginning in August 2020. For more information call 0808 234 0680 or visit carnival.com
