Police on board Carnival Legend cruise ship after reported violence between passengers

Brawl on cruise ship Watch passengers let fists fly

A passenger identified only as Naomi said: "There are about 20 of the family, older people, teenagers and young kids with them".

"He rang me about 1am this morning and said, "please dad, please dad, call the federal police", Mr Barkho told 3AW.

Video of the scuffle, shared on social media, shows dozens of people fighting each other, security guards and other staff before the person filming the incident is confronted by staff.

The ship had left Sydney on Friday on a three-night cruise to nowhere and returned as scheduled on Monday.

"There are people walking around with cut heads and hands", she told Melbourne radio station 3AW.

Carnival Cruise Line says police were requested to the Carnival Legend and "remove a family group of passengers".

'We are assisting the police in their inquiries.'The group will no longer be welcome to travel with P&O Cruises or any of its associated brands'.

Nobody could have guessed that a relaxing ten-day South Pacific cruise along the picturesque shores of southeastern Australian would have led to complete disaster.

One passenger told Nine News: "We are so scared after witnessing a traumatic experience with yet again the same offenders".

The Illawarra Mercury reported that up to 30 passengers were injured in the bloody brawls.

Scared parents described hiding in their cabins along with their children as the rolling brawls broke out on deck and in the entertainment areas of the ship.

It is not the first time Australian passengers have complained of violence on board cruise ships.

A brutal melee has played out in the foyer of the Carnival Legend cruise ship off the NSW coast.

Some intending passengers are now contacting Carnival Cruise Line asking for refunds for future trips, saying they are concerned about safety.

The ship is now back on its way to Melbourne and Ms Vandekreeke said that the measures taken by staff on board would allow fellow cruise guests to enjoy the remaining stages of their holiday.

'The ship's highly trained security staff have engaged with a small group of disruptive guests and ensured that they are fully aware of and are compliant with our zero tolerance policy. "We felt it was the best course of action for the safety and security of our guests and our crew".
