  • Mass brawl erupts on cruise ship after 'man steps on passenger's flip flop'

The ship docked at Melbourne in an unscheduled stop later that day, removing 23 passengers.

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

Carnival Cruise Lines has said it called police to "remove a family group of passengers", and police officers boarded the ship on Friday morning when it reached the port of Eden on the NSW South Coast.

It is still unclear if the family will face any charges for the fight, though Marine Area Command officials are now investigating it.

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.

'He said, "Please Dad, please, call the Federal Police",' he added.

THIS is the shocking moment violent brawls broke out on a cruise ship leaving terrified passengers hiding in their cabins fearing for their safety.

"Disembarking a family from a cruise in an unprecedented incident, it is always our last resort and therefore we felt it was the best course of action for the safety and security of our guests and crew", She said.

On Friday, police escorted a host of passengers off the ship and into a waiting bus.

She also said members of the family were involved in other incidents during the cruise, but declined to elaborate.

The group was taken ashore and then to Canberra where they made other travel arrangements, NSW Police said.

"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".

'We are confident that this strong action has addressed the disruption on Carnival Legend and enabled our remaining guests to properly enjoy the closing stages of their cruise holiday.
