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!

A third Royal Caribbean ship has now been forced to skip its scheduled port call to Labadee, Haiti. The news which was first reported by the RCI Blog mentioned that the cruise line had confirmed Vision of the Seas did not call at the port. Cruise Hive reported last week on Freedom of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas also missing out on the call.

The locals have been protesting due to national elections and it’s not clear when the matter will be resolved. Future ships scheduled to visit Labadee could also be under threat. The cruise line has said that it doesn’t want guests experience impacted so as a result is cancelling ship calls. Royal Caribbean has also said Vision of the Seas will sail towards San Juan, Puerto Rico earlier than usual.


The 78,500 gross ton Vision of the Seas is sailing a 9-night eastern caribbean cruise and was scheduled to call at Labadee on Sunday, January 24. It doesn’t look like the port will be replaced and guests will receive some money back after missing out. The 1,996 passenger ship is expected back in Tampa, Florida On January 30.
