The Original Mardi Gras: The First Carnival Cruise Ship

Carnival Cruise Line expects to launch its newest member of the Carnival Family: Mardi Gras. Let's look back at the original!

On Saturday February 27, the Carnival Sensation rescued 16 Cuban migrants in the Gulf of Mexico. The migrants were 50 miles north of Cuba and in a small raft with a sail. There were 15 males and 1 female on the tiny raft. Carnival Sensation crew brought the Cubans onboard the 70,370 gross ton vessel.

The ship was sailing a special 2016 Legends of Pittsburgh Cruise which features legends who have put the city on the map. One of those legends onboard was former professional American football player James Harrison. Harrison caught the rescue and posted to his Instagram account.
