An entire family was removed from a Carnival cruise ship after a massive melee broke out aboard the ship.
Twenty-three people were forcibly deboarded from the ship after an incident during a 10-day South Pacific cruise, according to Carnival Australia.
The nearly two-dozen rowdy seafarers were part of an extended family that became involved in violent acts at around 1:30 in the morning on Friday, causing the captain of the ship to anchor the vessel and refuse to take the group any further.
The Aussie clan were then unloaded off the coast of Eden under the watchful eye of the New South Wales Police, who were not about to tolerate any nonsense.
Carnival Australia president Sture Myrmell told ABC Australia that the behavior of the family was not to be tolerated.
“Excessive behavior of all kinds is something that we do not tolerate, regardless of guests or crew members, but until we have conducted the investigation, it’s too early for us to comment,” he said.
Unarmed security forces aboard the ship were forced to kick some of the brawlers in an attempt to subdue them.
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 unruly lot were deboarded to the cheering of other passengers, who presumably booked an expensive cruise aims of relaxation.
