Carnival Cruise Line on Wednesday unveiled what staterooms on the Mardi Gras will look like.

Distinguished by muted turquoise hues, cabins will feature floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors on nearly all verandahs, a flip-open sofa bed, foot stools that open up for storage, space under the bed to stow luggage, clear glass doors on the mini-refrigerator and flexible bedside reading lamps.

Compared with previous Carnival ships, there will be more power outlets and USB connections and a larger wardrobe with two pull-out bins, a sliding shoe rack and folding shelves. Bathrooms will have shower glass doors, a first for Carnival, and an in-shower shaving bar.

The roomier Family Harbor accommodations will be located near Camp Ocean and have access to the Family Harbor Lounge.

The staterooms were developed in partnership with DCA Design International of Warwick, England. "The staterooms will reflect new and innovative design practices that are ergonomically friendly and maximize visual space, clean lines, surfaces and storage," Carnival said in a statement.  

More than 70% of staterooms will have an ocean view or balcony. There will be 300 pairs of connecting staterooms for large families or groups. 

The roomier Family Harbor accommodations will be located near Camp Ocean, the children's facility, and have access to the Family Harbor Lounge, where breakfast and snacks are available throughout the day and guests can play board games, watch movies and play video games.

Guests in the tropics-inspired Havana staterooms have access to an exclusive open deck with sun loungers, a Cuban-themed bar and relaxation pool.
