PEOPLE chatted with O’Neal and asked him a tough questions about cruising.
Okay, let’s only residence this. You’re 7’1″ tall. Why would we get on a boat?
You can’t call it a boat. It’s a ship.
What’s a difference?
The size! A vessel is incomparable than a boat.
So we wouldn’t get on a boat, though you’ll get on a ship?
I’ll unequivocally get on a journey ship. They’re bigger than they look.
They demeanour flattering large to me.
When we lived in Miami, I’d expostulate past a journey ships and think, ‘Why do we wish to be on something like that?’ I’d see a windows and they only looked unequivocally small. we didn’t know how large they unequivocally are. But when we get on a ship, we see how atmospheric it is, and all that there is to do.
So do we have to steep a lot on a journey ship, so we don’t strike a ceiling?
I’m used to ducking. we do it each day. we didn’t have to do it any some-more on a vessel than we do during home. Just to get by a doorway of a cabin. But a regular-sized chairman won’t have to steep during all.
So if Shaquille O’Neal goes on a cruise, what does he do?
Whatever we wish to do. There’s all sorts of food. There’s a basketball justice and a gym. There’s a casino. There are pools. You can be doing something all day long. we consider it’s a lot of fun.

Get up, steep to get out a door. Get breakfast. Go to a basketball court. Go to a gym. Eat lunch. Go to a pool. Relax on a deck. Go to a casino. Go behind to a room, steep one some-more time to get inside. Take a nap. Go to dinner. Go out to a bar or whatever is going on in a evening. Duck one some-more time to get into a room, that is big. Go to sleep.
So what surprises we a many about cruising?
I approaching it to be boring. It’s not.
You’re asked to validate lots of things. Were we astounded when Carnival asked we to partner with them?
No, since a vessel is large fun, only like me.
