Carnival today announced the name for its newest ship, currently under construction in Finland: Carnival Mardi Gras.

The first ship in Carnival's line was also named Mardi Gras. It began cruises back in 1972.

The new Mardi Gras will be Carnival's largest-ever ship: 180,000 tons and up to 5,200 passengers.

Set to launch in 2020, Mardi Gras will be home-ported at Port Canaveral, Florida.
