On this week’s episode of Cruise Radio, we chat with staff writer Richard Simms, who just returned from a seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise on Carnival Cruise Line’s newest mega-ship Mardi Gras.
This was his first cruise in two years, and he treated himself to an aft balcony Excel Suite. We get a comprehensive review of the ship, ports of call, and what he thought of BOLT — the first roller coaster at sea.
