Passengers Behave Violently on Carnival Legend

Shocking footage of a brawling Australian family terrorising other passengers on a cruise ship has been released online.

It's believed days of fighting on board the Carnival Cruise Line ship preceded the brawl and Friday's unscheduled stop to offload the family at Eden on NSW's south coast.

Footage of Friday's brawl shows security officials kicking at passengers grappling on the ground amid screams. An unnamed passenger filmed the ship's crew and security officers trying to break up the fight and, at one point, kicking two male passengers already on the ground.

Zac suggested the drama between his family and another party on the ship started following a misunderstanding over a thong. "They told us to watch our backs".

They were then transported to Canberra Airport, where other travel arrangements were made, police say.

One passenger told AAP someone had attacked a security guard.

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 the radio station.

Mr Barkho has since rubbished claims of'warring families and bloody violence triggered by his family members
One witness named only as Zac alleged the brawl started after two men tangled feet leading to a bitter exchange of words between two family groups

She added there had been a number of fights on board, including in a nightclub and in an elevator the next day, "and a big fight on the lido deck, which went on for about 45 minutes".

Over the course of what some passengers had taken to calling the "cruise from hell", multiple violent incidents - including a fight in a nightclub and in an elevator - involving the extended family occurred, reportedly leaving some guests concerned for their safety and locking themselves in their rooms as a result.

Carnival Legend is an 88,500 gross ton ship and is based out of Melbourne, Australia including several calls in New Caledonia. Police confirmed that security detained the men involved.

"There were limited and isolated events with the family in question", she said.

Police said six men and three teenage boys were removed from the ship and that a further 14 passengers, including women and children, also left the ship.

"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".

"Carnival Legend is now on a 10-day South Pacific cruise scheduled to be completed in Melbourne tomorrow [Saturday]".
