Carnival Cruise Line will create a seagoing version of a new chicken restaurant opened by Shaquille O'Neal.

The former NBA star, who has been serving as "chief fun officer" in Carnival promotions, opened a Big Chicken restaurant in Las Vegas in October.

The first Big Chicken outlet at sea will be added to the Carnival Radiance (the current Carnival Victory) in a $200 million refurbishment scheduled for 2020. 

The menu at Carnival's Big Chicken will feature a variety of fried chicken sandwiches and fries, free of charge. Breakfast also will be offered with choices like biscuit sandwiches with chicken and egg.
