Fancy chicken in a basket? It should be a slam dunk to find on board Carnival Radiance when she launches in 2020 after a $200million dry dock makeover.

The transformed 101,509 gross tonnage, 2,764-passenger Carnival Victory will be home to the first Big Chicken on a cruise ship - a free seagoing version of a new Las Vegas restaurant created by the line's Chief Fun Officer, basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal. Located aft on Lido Deck, Big Chicken will offer fried chicken favourites developed and tastetested by NBA Hall of Famer Shaq and based on his own recipes.

Breakfast will be also offered, with choices such as chicken and egg biscuits (no, me neither!).

The 7ft 1in former LA Lakers centre said: ''As Chief Fun Officer, I want to bring even more fun to every aspect of a Carnival cruise, including what guests eat.

"I'm really excited that Carnival Radiance guests will be able to enjoy my own delicious creations alongside all the other great food offerings on board."

Other food and drink outlets on Carnival Radiance will include Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, American steakhouse Fahrenheit 555, Cucina del Capitano family-style Italian trattoria and the Caribbean-inspired RedFrog Pub. To work off the calories, there's a new WaterWorks aqua park and SportSquare recreation complex.

Radiance will debut in the Med then relocate to New York City before homeporting in Port Canaveral, Florida.
