Authorities are investigating a massive brawl at sea that broke out on the Carnival Magic cruise ship.
The brawl reportedly erupted just before 2 a.m. on the fifth floor of the ship, where the club and casino are located.
According to Theresa James, who claims to be a travel agent, an alleged threesome between passengers sparked chaos when their significant others found out about it.
James says the brawl lasted for about an hour, but she credited Carnival and its security team for eventually bringing the situation under control.
Security had to call in the Coast Guard to help escort the ship to Pier 90 on Manhattan’s West Side
Fox News obtained a video of the melee.
FOX 5 New York reports the New York Police Department is currently interviewing passengers and eyewitnesses.
Matt Lupoli, Senior Manager of Public Relations for Carnival, said in a statement:
Last night while Carnival Magic was returning to New York, a number of guests were involved in an altercation in a nightclub.
Thankfully no serious injuries were reported and our onboard security team intervened.
The ship arrived as scheduled this morning and authorities were notified and met the ship to interview suspects and witnesses and conduct an investigation.
Whew, chile! Not banging on the ocean blue!
