Carnival Comes to Southampton!

Finally, after having Carnival UK & pkc based in the city, the port of Southampton finally gets to see another Carnival ship after Fascination in 1994!

When they have sailed from the UK in the past, Dover has been their base. They return there briefly in June 2020 with Carnival Legend.

But three months later, on the 9th September, their newest ship, Mardi Gras, visits the home of Carnival UK!

A sister to Iona for P&O, she will no doubt berth in Ocean Terminal, which is currently undergoing phase 1 of a million pound upgrade to welcome Iona in May 2020, paid for in part by Carnival.

After a 9 night inaugural cruise from Denmark, she sets sail from Southampton on a 14 night trip across to New York.

I look forward to seeing the whale tail over the port!
