Grand Mardi Gras Afloat Description

Grand Mardi Gras Afloat - Holiday Event | Parade | Party in Amsterdam.

Mardi Gras bashes do not only take place in New Orleans. In fact, some of the best parties on Fat Tuesday don’t even take place on the same continent as the Big Easy.

Grand Mardi Gras Afloat in Amsterdam offers locals and tourists a chance to get the NOLA experience all the way in the Netherlands. The Holland America cruise line invites guests to hop on one of its best cruise ships, which is converted into a mini Bourbon Street for the occasion.

At the Grand Mardi Gras Afloat, the cruise’s pool becomes a paddleboat restaurant area complete with Mardi Gras decorations and jazz music. Event organizers set up lights, market stalls, tables decked in green, gold, and purple, and drape banners over the ship’s balcony so that you’ll feel like you’re in Louisiana. Crewmembers wear festive outfits (guests are encouraged to do the same) and have been known to start a flash mob or two.

Ticket prices for the Grand Mardi Gras Afloat vary depending on the year, so be sure to check in annually for more information on this fun event!
