Carnival Cruise Line will roll out the red, white and blue hull design of its newest ship, the Mardi Gras, to the rest of its fleet.

The Carnival Magic will be the first ship to receive the livery, during its current drydock in Marseilles, France.

Additional vessels will receive the livery design as they also undergo scheduled maintenance, with the Carnival Glory being the second get it during a drydock scheduled in June.

Carnival's ship have traditionally had all white hulls with one red stripe. The cruise line said the new design pays homage to "maritime tradition and patriotic colors," with a navy blue hull inspired by officers' uniforms and red and white accents running the length of the ship.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said the idea to give the entire fleet the Mardi Gras hull was partly inspired by the line's 50th anniversary celebration in 2022.

In addition to the new livery, the Magic will emerge from its drydock on May 24 with an expanded casino, new finishes for the WaterWorks aqua park and pools and other enhancements.
