Carnival Cruise Line announced a brand new aqua park for Carnival Panorama, approved by "water park expert" and Carnival Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq revealed he had returned from personally testing out liner's 2 massive waterslides, including the 455-foot-long Red Fun slide and 300-foot-long Blue Fun slide, in order to make sure they are the “funnest” they can be.

Taking name from Carnival’s brand slogan, the new Choose Fun park takes center stage on the top deck of Carnival Panorama and will also feature a 300-gallon PowerDrencher tipping bucket that is part of a Shaq-tastic kiddie spray park together with popular favorites like a suspended ropes course and the SkyRide aerial attraction, part of SportSquare outdoor recreation area.

Carnival Panorama, which is currently under construction at Italy's Fincantieri shipyard, is scheduled to set sail on her inaugural 3-day voyage from Long Beach and then launch year-round 7-day Mexican Riviera service on December 14, marking the first new ship of Carnival from the West Coast in twenty years.
