  • Cucina del Capitano- dine on some Italian comfort food in this warm and welcoming restaurant, boasting innovative and tasty creations as well as classic pasta dishes.
  • Rudi's Seagrill- if you love seafood, but don’t take your cuisine too seriously, Rudi’s Seagrill is the perfect place for you. Combining classic seafood flavours with the chef’s signature fun presentation, you’re guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face.
  • Emeril's Bistro 1396- the famous chef's first restaurant at sea and just the place to grab some delicious creole treats. Make sure to get the barbecue shrimp!


Cruisers can rest assured that there will be no dull moments onboard Carnival Mardi Gras. Once the sun has set on an unforgettable day of shore excursions and ship exploring, opportunities to simply sit back and be entertained are also plentiful.

If you like listening to live musicians, you'll love the live music and pop-up acts in the Grand Central Zone. The Punchliner Comedy Club is also nearby and is the spot onboard where you’ll laugh until your sides hurt. For truly breathtaking live performances at sea, Playlist Productions aren't to be missed, bringing Broadway-style shows to the seven seas. Meanwhile, those who prefer something more subtle should head to La Piazza, where you can spend hours chatting with new friends over a coffee or cocktail while roaming musicians serenade your table.

Evenings can also be spent in the enchanting French Quarter, home to a wonderful Brass Magnolia jazz bar, where you can relax and sway along to some beautiful renditions of a range of songs. For something more casual, Dive-In movies are in the Lido zone where you can get comfy on a lounger under a blanket and settle in for a blockbuster.

If it's just a drink you're looking for, there are a number of bars and lounges- both inside and alfresco- where you can enjoy a romantic evening, socialise with newfound friends or dance the night away:

  • Fortune Teller
  • Redfrog Tiki Bar
  • Havana Bar

Things to do


With an onboard zone known as ‘The Ultimate Playground’, it will come as no surprise to learn that Mardi Gras has an abundance of fun and exciting things to do. As well as pools, whirlpools, and sun loungers, this ship breaks the mould with its activities:

  • BOLT- the first of its kind at sea, thrill-seekers will love this 800-foot long roller coaster, which reaches a whopping 40mph! Enjoy the views as you whoosh around the outdoor activity zone.
  • Carnival WaterWorks- kids and cruisers young at heart will love the fun activities at the onboard water park, which includes three spiralling slides as well as splash pools and more.
  • SportsSquare- stay active while having a laugh playing basketball, mini-golf (on a full-sized course), and testing your strength on the ropes course.

Meanwhile, those looking for a little retail therapy should head to the French Quarter. Find the perfect gift to take back to a loved one at home, a souvenir for yourself, or even a fabulous new outfit to wear on a special night onboard.

Spa and fitness

As well as a well-equipped, modern gym which will make even the most intensive workout an enjoyable experience, Mardi Gras also boasts some more relaxing areas. The gorgeous Cloud 9 Spa, where guests can really indulge in some ‘me-time’, comes with a fantastic menu of treatments and a tranquil environment ideal for those who want to leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. What's more, adults looking for some peace and quiet during their cruise can enjoy the Serenity Retreat, an adult-only area boasting daybeds, a bar and exceptional ocean views.
