- (fleet-first) "Big Chicken" is the "ship version" of the land-based restaurant chain operated by Carnival’s "Chief Fun Officer" Shaq (Shaquille O’Neal - retired professional US basketball player). Unsurprisingly, Big Chicken serves chicken-based dishes, emphasizing on fried chicken sandwiches. Each sandwich type is named after Shaq’s nicknames. The restaurant also serves fries, sliders, breakfast, siders, salads, strips, chicken-and-egg biscuits, kids meals. Big Chicken is similar to Guy’s Burger Joint. Both are complimentary, to-go food bars.
