Carnival Cruise brawl prompts Coast Guard response | Morning in America

At least 40 to 60 people joined the fray and the fight went on for an hour before onboard security got everyone under control. Still, the Coast Guard escorted the ship to its scheduled final stop and police first responders were waiting on the dock.


A quick YouTube search reveals that big fights on these ships are not at all uncommon. We beat this drum pretty regularly, but cruise ships seem like pure hell. Eight days on one would make me want to start a nuclear war on the dance floor but I say this as an outsider, as I’d never board one of those polluting, disease-spreading floating toilets. They could be the absolute bees-knees, at least there’s apparently plenty of hanky-panky, but at what cost?
