One of the most significant design changes Carnival Cruise Line made with the construction of their newest cruise ship Mardi Gras, was the change from an all white hull to the patriotic Red, White & Blue. Following the popularity of the new look, the design will become a trademark feature across the fleet as Carnival, America’s Cruise Line, prepares to celebrate its 50th birthday in 2022.

Carnival Magic will be the first ship to receive the new livery during its current dry dock in Marseilles, France.

Paying homage to maritime tradition and patriotic colors, the eye-catching hull design is highlighted by a stately navy blue hull inspired by officers’ uniforms along with vibrant red and white accents running the entire length of the 1,004-foot-long ship.  Additional vessels will receive the new livery as they undergo scheduled dry docks.  Carnival Glory will be the second ship to receive the new hull design during a dry dock scheduled in June.   

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line said:

“When we first saw the hull design for Mardi Gras, we knew it was something special and, particularly as we get ready to celebrate our 50th birthday, we’re delighted to incorporate this stunning livery as a signature exterior design element across our fleet,”


“As we look to resume sailing in the U.S., we’re coming back with a signature new look as well!”

Aside from the new exterior look, when Carnival Magic leaves her dry dock on May 24th, she’ll feature an expanded casino with an even greater variety of slots and other games, as well as a host of enhancements including freshening up the finishes for the WaterWorks aqua park and pools.
