Port Canaveral Welcomes Carnival Mardi Gras Home

This week my wife Leslie and I had the pleasure to go up to Port Canaveral and welcome Carnival’s newest ship, the Mardi Gras to her new homeport. It was great to get out and see other people from the travel industry, advisors, media, and friends!  And while we actually didn’t get on the ship, it was great to see the new terminal and the Mardi Gras in port. The long-awaited return to cruising is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited!


Executives from the Carnival Corporation, the port authority, travel industry, and media were all on hand to welcome the Mardi Gras home.

Carnival’s new VIP lounge awaits, ready for a cruise?

Carnival’s new terminal was completed in mid-2020 has been sitting vacant for a year waiting to welcome her first guests.

Soon Carnival’s new terminal will be welcoming cruise guests for the first time.

Spacious and comfortable waiting areas are available to guests waiting to board their ship.


The port seems eerily empty, but ready for guests to return.

It was great seeing the Mardi Gras in port. Soon she’ll welcome guests on board for the first time.

Wait, is that a roller coaster on the top deck?

Yes, it is, the first-ever, roller coaster at sea, on a cruise ship!
