Mardi Gras: Fun vacation innovation with LNG

When we launched our first ship, the 1972 TSS Mardi Gras, we made cruising much less stuffy, a little less flashy, and fun for everyone. No one expected this ship to change the world of cruising...here we are! Well, here is a brand new ship with a familiar name. This Mardi Gras™ pays more than just a tribute to the first ship. In the cruise industry, the name suggests innovation and marks the beginning of something big. Oh, and this carnival still screams "Fun!" The ship introduces The Zones, six themed areas packed with all-new experiences for eating, drinking and great fun. His BOLT™, the first coaster at sea, his Emeril's Bistro 1396™ by Yes-that-Emeril, Family Feud™ Live for everyone...and great new bars like The Brass Magnolia and Fortune Teller. Now everyone can enjoy Mardi Gras and go sailing. come down!
