Carnival Cruise Line Revises Delivery Date For Mardi Gras 
 
MIAMI, Dec. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Carnival Cruise Line has been informed by 
officials at the Meyer Turku shipyard that delivery of Mardi Gras will be 
delayed and is advising booked guests and travel advisors that the first 
revenue sailing of the ship will be Nov. 14, 2020. 
 
With this new schedule, Carnival will now take delivery of the ship in late 
October and its first revenue sailing will depart from Port Canaveral on Nov. 
14, 2020.  Consequently, the first eight sailings that were scheduled starting 
Aug. 31 have been cancelled, including European, transatlantic and New 
York-based itineraries and four Port Canaveral itineraries. 
 
Carnival said that the guest notification process began promptly after the 
notice by Meyer Turku so that impacted guests could begin to make alternative 
vacation plans.  As a gesture of goodwill, Carnival is offering these guests a 
25 percent future cruise credit (FCC), in addition to the full refund of their 
cruise fare (and applicable fees and taxes and other pre-purchased cruise 
components), as well as assistance with non-refundable airline and hotel 
reservations already booked. In addition, if guests rebook their cruise 
vacation using their 25 percent FCC by Feb. 18, 2020, they will be credited 
with an additional $100 per person onboard credit for that cruise.  Carnival 
has also communicated guidelines to travel advisors regarding commission 
protection. 
 
"We have been working closely with Meyer Turku executives to keep the Mardi 
Gras delivery on schedule, and while we deeply regret disappointing our guests, 
this change in the delivery date is required to make sure all of the ship's 
systems, features and technology will be fully operational, so that we can give 
our guests the vacation they expect. Our commitment is to deliver a great and 
innovative ship, and Mardi Gras will definitely be that when it arrives in 
North America," said Ben Clement, Carnival Cruise Line's senior vice president 
of newbuild.
