Carnival Cruise Line has announced that the Mardi Gras will now debut in early 2021, with cruises sailing from Port Canaveral starting February. 6, 2021.
The Carnival Mardi Gras was expected to sail a short series of cruises from New York before heading to Florida for the Fall / Winter - those cruises were cancelled earlier in the year and now the ship has been delayed further.
Itineraries out of Port Canaveral for departures from Nov. 14, 2020 to Jan. 30, 2021 have been cancelled.
"We continue to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on global commerce, public health and our cruise operations. In addition to our current pause in service, there have been many other unintended consequences, including shipyard, dry dock and ship delivery delays, and related changes to our deployment plans for our fleet," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
"While we had hoped to make up construction time on Mardi Gras over the summer, it's clear we will need extra time to complete this magnificent ship. We share our guests' disappointment and appreciate their patience as we work through this unprecedented time in our business and the lives of so many people. We remain committed to working with government, public health and industry officials to support the response to the pandemic and to return to operations when the time is right."
