Passengers in huge fight on cruise ship!

I would like to say that this is a rarity but unfortunately this is not the first time I have heard of a fight on board!

the incident took place between passengers on the Carnival Glory which left Miami on Saturday. Pictures have been sprawled over the internet showing around a dozen passengers punching, kicking and wrestling. It is believed that a security guard tried to stop the fight but was unsuccessful. Carnival is renowned for having how shall we say – a more ‘fun loving guest’ but this really is disgraceful!

Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t happen often but it’s not unknown of. Earlier this year, I spoke to some of my clients who had just returned from a world cruise. Over the years they have done a few world cruises but were left disappointed by this one, generally due to the passengers on board. My client told me that there was little interaction between people like on his other world voyages and that everyone tended to keep themselves to themselves.

He went on to tell me that that one morning he accidently bumped into a lady in the restaurant whilst they were both getting breakfast causing her to drop her bowl, the lady confronted him and was very rude, even though he had explained it was a simple accident. No more was thought of it until later that day, the lady’s husband approached my client and threatened him! What happened to talking!

he was a little shaken up by the event and tried to avoid the passengers until the end of the cruise but it really did dampen his spiritd. I can’t even believe that this happened on a world cruise and it was a Cunard world cruise at that!

It just goes to show that money can’t buy you manners!

If anyone has experienced anything similar, feel free to share!
