As cruise ships are starting to set sail again, Carnival Cruise Line’s newest vessel Mardi Gras has set the cruise ship craziness bar higher. Just when you thought cruise ships couldn’t possibly offer any more attractions, they’ve upped the ante by creating the world’s first on-board roller coaster.
And they’ve put it on a very, very large ship. Mardi Gras is a 181,808-ton vessel that is 35 percent bigger than the biggest Carnival cruise ship. It can hold up to 6,630 passengers and it’s one of the top 10 biggest cruise ships ever built.
