Passengers Behave Violently on Carnival Legend

Police said the brawl happened about 220 kilometres off the coast of Jervis Bay

One passenger, who gave her name as Katie, said one one family had been "looking for trouble from the minute they got on the ship", adding there were around 30 troublemakers.

One woman yelled that she had been mistreated as she was being removed after what fellow passengers complained had been days of mayhem and violence. The captain refused to take them any further.

"We take a zero tolerance approach to excessive behaviour that affects other guests and we have acted accordingly on Carnival Legend".

The Carnival Legend, carrying more than 2000 passengers, cut short a ten-day cruise earlier today to allow police to remove the family.

"He said: 'Please, Dad, please Dad, call the federal police".

The Turkish minister also reported Mattis as saying the US was developing plans to take back weapons supplied to the Syrian Kurds. Tillerson started a two-day trip to Turkey amid growing tensions between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

A cruise in Australia descended into a "bloodbath" Friday when a wild brawl erupted after someone stepped on another passenger's flip-flop.

Police are believed to have removed about 15 troublemakers from the Carnival Legend at Eden, and the ship is expected to continue to its home port of Melbourne tomorrow. Other passengers have felt scared onboard the ship and some have even been victims of attacks from the group of passengers causing the brawls.

Mr Barkho also alleges cruise security staff are attempting to destroy images and footage from the incident.

Two passengers are dragged onto the floor before security officers appear to punch and kick the people grappling on the floor while a piercing scream can be heard in the background.

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.

Video footage 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.

His 20-year-old son said "a lot of people are bleeding, a lot of people down".

David Barkho says his son phoned and begged him to call authorities after he sustained a head injury while on the ship.

"Disembarking a family from a cruise is an unprecedented incident - it is always our last resort", said Cruise Line Australia vice-president Jennifer Vandekreeke, who also confirmed that the group was involved in a number of "limited and isolated events".

"The ship's security team is applying our zero-tolerance policy in the interests of the safety and comfort of other guests", the company said.
