Onboard brawl forces cruise ship to make unscheduled stop

Passengers say a brawl that erupted around 12:45am Friday-resulting in an unexpected stop and the removal of 23 family members-was the culmination of days of violence that left as many as 30 people injured aboard the "cruise from hell", per 3AW.

Passengers on board a 10-day cruise across the South Pacific have revealed they are too scared to leave their cabins after witnessing violent brawls described as a "bloodbath".

The video footage shows security staff pinning one man to the ground as a woman's screams ring through the deck.

The ship's crew and security can be seen struggling to break up the fight and are seen kicking two men on the ground.

Passengers said the people in the brawl comprised two groups, which had been warring on and off during the cruise.

The brawl, which was partially captured on video, was slowly building over several days during a 10-day South Pacific cruise, the company said.
