Around two dozen Carnival Cruise Line passengers were removed from the Carnival Legend on Friday following a violent brawl that one onlooker described as a “bloodbath.” The Carnival Legend was scheduled to dock in Melbourne on Saturday following a 10-day trip through the South Pacific, but was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Eden, New South Wales, where police unloaded the unruly passengers, 9 News Australia is reporting. Witnesses say the fight broke out very early on Friday morning between a large extended family, guests and staff members, and grew to the point where fellow passengers were “truly scared for [their]

Don´t make assumptions. Remember that low-life comes in every color. Watch the video if you care to, and see a security guy kicking the you know what out of a woman on the ground. Not worthy of a must-read, though, in my humble opinion.

The news reports take care to avoid mentioning the family name. Since there were no formal arrests, perhaps that´s protocol. Later reports list the family name as Bharko. Swarthy clan.

We cruise all the time, #4, and have never encountered anything like this! I think it was a family who probably fight like that whenever they all get together. Too bad they had to spoil the cruise for fellow passengers. Carnival did the right thing by putting them off the Ship!

Those Aussies know how to party! That said, we encountered the same type behavior on a Carnival cruise out of JAX. Redneck sisters fighting over a guy outside our cabin at 3 am. Food that was neither hot nor cold. Obese people on scooters racing to the buffet. We decided never again. It was like a floating Walmart full of scratcher winners and their families. You get what you pay for! Lol.

I´m with #8. We stopped going on cruises a long time ago and I don´t miss them. We took Royal Caribbean and it´s no different from Carnival. If I want to lay out in the sun by the pool, your packed like sardines. When we vacation, we want quite and pampering. We go to all inclusives and receive what we pay for.

Looks like the crew were the usual suspects. Once this video makes the rounds, only a fool would buy a cruise on that ship. I guess that’s why the crew were so concerned about being recorded. The crew should be booted.

No, #4, not a reason to avoid cruises. Just another reason to avoid Carnival, which has a reputation as the Party Boat. This is why I always sail on Celebrity - smaller ships, older crowd, rather than a bunch of rowdy young people out to get hammered.

A gigantic ship with thousands of people on it and six people go into a fisti-wresle mania - secuerity stops it and the headline is all about how frightened all the passengers were. huh? that´s sensational, isn´t it. I lived in a little town of about the same population as on board this ship and people fought every week end at the local tavern- No one seemed to be rushing to their bedrooms and hiding under the covers for the week. What are vacays for anyway? some excitement! This was tops for it. Like going to yellowstone and getting to film two bison rutting, or a black bear rutting through the garbage while rangers try comically to roust it back to the wild. Something in the kit now to show the folks when you get back home- Awesome!

Live, enjoy and expect (hope for) the unexpected on your adventures. Otherwise, it´s just a carnival ride, not an adventure.

Watch that movie, "City Slickers"- that was an adventure, that was!

I don´t cruise, but if I ever choose to get stranded on a huge boat in the middle of the ocean with strangers, I will select the most expensive cruise I can find. The price point selects its customer base.
Same reason I have stopped shopping at the Walmart in my area and am willing to pay more for the added safety I feel in the parking lot.

I am also with #8. There is no way you could get me on a ship with several thousand passengers. There are bound to be some villains among that many passengers.

However, my wife and I took one of the riverboat cruises a couple of years ago. Delightful...less than 200 passengers...plenty of time to take tours and side trips...sit on the deck while the French countryside passes by. It´s the only type of cruise that I am interested in.

Low budget cruise line equals low mentality of the passengers. You get what you pay for. My wife and I have been on several cruises and have never run into this type of behavior. We purposely don´t sail on Carnival because of its reputation of catering to the exactly this type of crowd. I agree with poster 8, Carnival is appears to be like a floating Walmart.

Have no desire to cruise. Always prefered to go to an island resort and just stay. Or, now that I hate to fly anymore, get in our car and drive up the coast of California and hit our favorite towns, festivals, seasides, wineries, olive oil and garlic farms, dairies, all the way to Napa/Sonoma. That is fun. No restrictions on what you can bring, where you can go, no nutters freaking out on the plane, no kooks on a ship getting rowdy. And you can just get in your car and leave when you want...my idea of a good time. My 2 best friends and husbands cruise every year and beg us to go—no way.

"Bad cruise" articles come out a few times a year and they always bring out the "I would never go on a cruise" types. That´s fine.

We rule out no method of vacation.. land, sea and air. We have been on a dozen cruises all over the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, New England and Canada.

Sailing INTO Glacier Bay and the ship doing a slow 360 while we watch the glacier calf off icebergs and watching the sea otters play.. can´t get better than that and you will ONLY get that experience on the water. We as a family have never had one bad cruise and have never seen anything close to this. Yes, cruise security generally look intimidating. GOOD!

People who have bad cruise experiences generally pick the wrong cruise line, the wrong accommodations, or the wrong itinerary. We like smaller ships (1500 or less) and week + itineraries. The rule goes the shorter the itinerary and the older the ship, the more party hardy people on board.

Oh and Carnival owns our favorite line, Holland America. Can´t get more sedate than them.

Well, I´m not much of a cruiser, but we did take a Carnival ship from New Orleans to Cozumel and back some years ago. I liked it, but the best part was the ride down the Mississippi river to the Gulf. I was not interested in any of the gaming ´activities´, and they don´t offer a tour of the engineering spaces, which I was interested in. But, the passengers were OK, the crew was nice, the food was good, and the evening shows were also well done.

Oh, and I shop at our local Wal-Mart in Waveland, Mississippi.

I guess I´m just a Redneck at heart.

Since the feathered dinosaur revolution of the last couple decades, every time a dinosaur movie comes out it hatches think pieces about how the film is trampling on science. This will continue until Hollywood acquiesces and finally turns these bygone monsters into birds. As part of the press surrounding the latest Jurassic Park film, paleontologist Jack Horner was recently featured on KPCC’s “The Frame” to discuss his advisory role on the biggest dino franchise of them all. He’s been there pretty much since the beginning, and now he’s claiming that they knew back in 1992 and ‘93 that velociraptors had feathers.

Commenting on the U.S.’ withdrawal from the United Nations’ misnamed Human Rights Council, Ambassador Nikki Haley didn’t mince words. She called it a “hypocritical and self-serving” organization that actually protects rights abusers, and a “cesspool of political bias.” Although best-known for its peace-keeping in areas of conflict — where it enjoys a mixed record, at best — the U.N.’s agencies, commissions, and panels have a dismal record of accomplishment, especially while acting as the world’s regulator-wannabe for all manner of products, processes and activities. Along with failing to defend human rights, the U.N. regularly panders to activists and, not coincidentally, adopts

Republican lawmakers are preparing to vote on a more narrow immigration bill that would allow immigrant children to stay in detention facilities with their parents for more than 20 days, senior White House and Hill officials tell ABC News. The bill would correct an issue with President Trump´s executive order to stop the separation of children from parents who entered the country illegally. The existing law requires that children be released from detention after 20 days. The House is scheduled to vote on a larger "compromise" immigration bill early next week that would include DACA, border security and visas. But the

Immigration has always been the most inflammatory of political issues. We all have strong feelings. Mine are shaped by the fact that I’m an immigrant twice over. My parents fled communism in Hungary and were welcomed by Britain, where I was born and raised. And now here I am in America, making a new home for our family since we moved here in 2012. It’s impossible for me to be anything other than pro-immigration. Let me add a few more elements of personal context.

An ugly conundrum lies at the heart of the border crisis dominating our news coverage and social media feeds, complete with the sights and sounds of children separated from their parents: Under a 1997 settlement between the federal government and immigration activists, the government must choose between enforcing the law inhumanely and not enforcing it at all. The consent decree, known as the Flores agreement, was the product of nine years of litigation over the detention of unaccompanied minors apprehended crossing the border. It requires detained minors to be released as expeditiously as possible. In 2015, the 9th Circuit interpreted Flores´

A handful of new federal prosecutors have joined one of special counsel Robert S.

In a pair of court filings Friday, the special counsel added four assistant U.S. attorneys to the case against Russian entities and people accused of running an online influence operation targeting American voters. People familiar with the staffing decision said the new prosecutors are not joining Mueller’s team, but rather are being added to the case

A misleading TIME magazine cover of President Trump looming over a crying migrant girl has exemplified the media’s eagerness to portray the administration’s immigration policies in the harshest possible light. But it seems the iconic magazine treated the Obama administration with comparative kid gloves over similar practices, and with covers focused instead on “Manopause” and butter. Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore captured the iconic photo of a 2-year-old Honduran girl crying as her mother was detained along the U.S.-Mexico border. For TIME and others, she quickly became the face of a “zero tolerance” policy that had resulted in children of detained

Just over a year ago, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was being raked over the coals for his budget blueprint. In addition to supposed cuts to the Meals on Wheels program (which weren’t really cuts), the document projected savings of $72.5 billion within Social Security’s two main programs for the disabled. Liberal journalists injected outrage into their reports and columns. Some denounced this modest frugality as President Trump’s “deceitful attack on the disabled” and called the justifications for the reforms "false claims." Others snarkily but accurately noted that the cuts “will hurt Trump counties,” which perhaps should have signaled that

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v.

That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the
