Carnival Cruise Line’s first ship, 1972’s TSS Mardi Gras, redefined cruising, helping it shed its stuffy image and embrace fun. So when, in 2021, Carnival named its newest ship Mardi Gras, another revolution in floating entertainment was required. TAIT was tasked with transforming the Excel-class ship’s Grand Central Atrium and Main Theater into groundbreaking performance venues.

We designed, manufactured, and installed cutting-edge performer flying systems for the stunning three-story Grand Central Atrium. Capable of elaborate 3D maneuvers, these acrobatic winches and track systems allow performers to execute breathtaking aerial routines above guests. We also supplied rigging equipment in the Main Theater, with our epiQ console providing pinpoint automation control in both venues.

The Mardi Gras is a floating entertainment oasis. Its advanced flying systems enable complex, innovative shows that keep audiences spellbound, and it’s no surprise that the ship has been a massive hit with guests. The ship has set a new standard for Carnival Cruise Line, which has since added two similar Excel-class ships to its fleet.
