Carnival Cruise Line will debut a seagoing version of the iconic TV game show Family Feud as part of the entertainment lineup on the Mardi Gras when it enters service in 2020.
Family Feud Live aboard Mardi Gras will feature the same format and set as the TV show. Two five-person teams will battle it out in rounds including ‘Face Off’ and ‘Fast Money’ by naming the most popular answers to survey questions for a chance to win prizes.
“Carnival Cruise Line is all about fun, family and friends just like Family Feud,” said CCL president Christine Duffy. “As we continue to build Mardi Gras’ diverse entertainment lineup, we are excited about offering this iconic game show onboard and involving our guests in a great new way to Choose Fun.”
The onboard version of Family Feud Live on Mardi Gras will be hosted by the ship’s cruise director. Several variations of the show will be played – and there will be both family-friendly and adult-oriented versions.
Family Feud Live will be one of the many all-ages entertainment offerings presented in Mardi Gras’ Grand Central zone and other new venues.
Currently under construction at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Turku, Finland, Mardi Gras is slated to enter service in Europe 31AUG, 2020, before repositioning to New York for a series of voyages then shift to Port Canaveral for year-round seven-day Caribbean cruises beginning in OCT 2020.
