Pacific cruise liner brawl sends guests fleeing to cabins

Carnival Legend had to remove an entire family from the cruise ship after fighting broke out

Twenty-three members of the same family have been removed from a cruise ship near Sydney after a brawl that left several injured, reports said.

Passengers travelling on a South Pacific cruise which turned sour after violence on board resulted in an entire family being ejected in an unscheduled stop have been offered a discount on further trips.

Ms Bolitho's son Jarrah was targeted by the family, with the pair fleeing and locking themselves in their cabin.

"One guy was having a smoke right next to the stairs on the top deck", he said.

"Very violent, they were full-on attacks", passenger Lisa Bolithoto ld reporters on Saturday.

"We were saying "We want them either locked up or taken off board".

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.

"Everyone on the cruise ship - even the security and the staff - they were really nice to everyone, [it was] just a few people who spoiled it for the rest", he said.

"I won't be travelling Carnival ever again so a 25 per cent off a future cruise in my eyes is unacceptable", Mark Morrison said.

"I was watching the fight and one guy came up to me and said 'Do you want to go too bro?'" he said, adding the offenders were in their late teens and early 20s.

He said everybody on board had been concerned and a number had missed flights because the ship had been delayed by three hours.

When her husband told them to take the violence away from their kids, "five of them surrounded" him and "told us to watch our backs", she tells 3AW.

One woman, who was waiting for her 20-year-old daughter at the pier said her daughter was in the nightclub at the time.
