Mardi Gras Ginger Ship – Carnival

The Challenge

Carnival Cruise Lines wanted to get in the holiday spirit while showcasing all the amazing features of their new ship, The Mardi Gras.

The Solution

Over the holidays, GDX helped build a 25ft representation of the Mardi Gras Cruise ship at Lenox Square Mall. With the help of Karen Portaleo, (Food Network’s Cake Challenge) this ship was built out of hundreds of gingerbread tiles, candy and frosting. No detail was left untouched; even a working roller coaster could be seen on the top entertainment deck.

Inspired by the likeness of Mardi Gras, “Carnival Gingerbread Ship” shares some of the ship’s newest features, such as the biggest waterworks waterpark yet, two-floor Red Frog tiki bar and most excitingly, Bolt – the first ever roller coaster at sea
