Mass brawl involving dozens erupts on cruise ship

Wednesday, Jun 29, 2022 0

A dance floor quarrel descended into a full-blown mass brawl on a cruise ship, prompting a US Coast Guard and police response.

As many as 60 guests were involved in the punch-up aboard the Carnival Magic which ship security staff struggled to control.

The Coast Guard escorted the ship to the Manhattan cruise port where NYPD police officers were waiting.

Suspects and witnesses were interviewed, Carnival said, but it is unclear if anyone is facing charges.

“A number of guests were involved in an altercation in a nightclub. The ship arrived as scheduled this morning and authorities were notified and met the ship,” it said.

“Thankfully no serious injuries were reported.”

The ship was on an eight-day cruise that called at Dominica, Turks and Caicos Carnival’s private island in the Bahamas.
