The new and last ship incorporated into the Carnival Cruise Line fleet, Mardi Gras, arrived at the Port of Barcelona. This corresponds to the last stop that the ship will make, before its arrival in Port Canaveral, in the United States.
After Mardi Gras was delivered on December 18 at the Meyer-Turku shipyard, Finland, it made a technical stopover in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, where the ship was supplied with LNG and provisions, in addition to carrying out a crew change, Cruise Hive reported.

In the same way, in the Port of Barcelona, Mardi Gras will refuel with fuel and provisions, along with changing its crew, before beginning its journey across the Atlantic to North America. Due to crew movement restrictions, the line is forced to make these changes before arriving in the US.
The ship will sail for at least another ten days before reaching the United States, traveling nearly 4,300 nautical miles. .
Mardi Gras will sail its first Caribbean cruises from Carnival’s new Terminal 3 in Port Canaveral, Florida on April 24, 2021. It was originally scheduled to debut on August 31, 2020 in Copenhagen, but was delayed by eight months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The ship’s first cruise will be a seven-day voyage through the eastern Caribbean, with stops at the ports of San Juan, Amber Cove, Grand Turk, and includes three days at sea.
