Produced with the important goals of getting and keeping guests’ attention and improving the knowledge of safety policies, it is being shown in all 34,000-plus staterooms throughout Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet and captioned in English and Spanish, as well as in English with audio descriptions for visually impaired guests.
With a distinctively Carnival approach, “Safety is Serious Fun” stars the line’s Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O’Neal, who appears in his nautical-themed “CFO office” and guides guests through the safety messages delivered by three Carnival crew members as they tour the ship and experience the dining, entertainment and recreation features that await the 5.2 million guests who annually sail with the world’s most popular cruise line.
Shaq is joined by Entertainment Team members Estevan Velasco-Romero of Clovis, N.M.; Katelyn Stillman of Kilmarnock, Va.; and AJ Tabaldo of Santa Barbara, Calif., who encounter colleagues – and even a few towel animals – along the way, all working together to ensure that guests understand and follow safety policies.

Shaquille O’Neal gave the following statement about this new video: “No one is as committed to fun as I am – after all, I am the Chief Fun Officer – but in order to take advantage of all of the great options onboard Carnival’s ships, we all must be safe.
Our guests know they can count on me to show them how to have fun at sea, but I’m really excited because now I’m showing them how to stay safe as well – the two go hand in hand.”
“Safety is Serious Fun” is now showing on all 26 ships in the Carnival Cruise Line fleet.
