Violent brawls and disruptive behavior on a 10-day Carnival cruise in the South Pacific led the ship to dock early and remove a large family of 23 people. Cellphone video from the ship shows passengers on the Carnival Legend tussling with each other and security officers amid shouting and screams from alarmed onlookers. “We have a zero tolerance approach to excessive behavior that affects other guests,” Carnival Cruise Line said in a statement. “About 1.30 p.m. (Friday), six men and three teenage boys were removed from the ship at Twofold Bay, Eden,” the police statement said. “A further 14 passengers, including women and children, also left the ship. The group were transported to Canberra where other travel arrangements were made.”
