Sneak Peek at Mardi Gras During Construction

The largest-ever Carnival cruise ship is currently under construction at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland. Carnival Cruise Line has released some behind the scenes footage during her construction as the creative interior spaces come to life.

Havana Bar – Deck 8

The footage we look at is the Cuban-themed Havana Bar that is located on Deck 8 mid-ship and open from 9:00 AM to late. The venue is similar to the current Havana space found on the Vista-class class vessels. The venue is a place to unwind with custom cocktails and Latin music.

Camp Ocean – Deck 4

The home of kids during a Carnival cruise! This fun-filled space in the mid-ship is starting to look alive with colorful d├ęcor and it’s adjacent to the Dr. Seuss Bookville, part of the exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises. Camp Ocean is for kids ages 2-11 and there is also a Night Owls service for babysitting the younger ones.

Limelight Lounge – Deck 7

The lounge will be full of live music and a range of entertainment offerings once the ship begins sailing in 2021. As you can see, workers are busy completing the venue which will be stunning and a must-visit during any Mardi Gras cruise. Located in the mid-ship on deck 7 there will be a dance floor, live music, karaoke, late-night shows, talks, and seminars.

Cloud 9 Spa – Deck 6

The Cloud 9 Spa is going to be a popular venue on the new cruise ship. It features a huge gym and is located on deck 5 and 6 forward.
