Violent Brawl Breaks Out Aboard Carnival Cruise Ship in Australia

A 3-day Australian cruise aboard a Carnival cruise ship turned into a trip from hell for some as an unruly group allegedly spent two days terrorizing other passengers on board, culminating in a violent brawl with ship security.

Police in New South Wales say they are investigating the alleged fight aboard the Carnival Legend, which occurred just after midnight on February 16 as the ship was about 220km off Jervis Bay during a cruise out of Melbourne.

According to media reports, the hooligans behind the melee were all members of the same group, described as a large Italian family. The situation onboard was so bad in fact that the ship had to make an emergency stop in Eden where six men and three teenagers were kicked off the ship, according to police. Fourteen others, reportedly from the same group, also disembarked.

The ship arrived back in Melbourne on Sunday, where passengers described just how bad it was onboard.
