anyone hear about this.

A large fight broke out late last week on a cruise ship based out of Port Canaveral and the captain of the Carnival Dream ended up throwing ten passengers off the ship. They were left in Costa Maya, Mexico (see map).

Carnival says they made arrangements for the ten people thrown off the ship to get home, along with an 11th person that was part of their party; they do not face any charges.

From a passenger: We were on the Carnival Dream sailing 08/07 to 08/14 and heard that a brawl broke out in the dance club around 3:00 a.m. on the morning of the 12th. We heard from passengers and a bartender that the brawl started over a song. It involved so many young people (men and women) that the security on board was unable to handle everyone and had to call in assistance from wait staff and other crew members. The fight spilled over into the art gallery located next door and apparently a $10K painting was ruined with blood spatter. Flat screen tvs were smashed and there was a lot of damage done. We heard that people on the ground were getting kicked in the head by men and women and that one person needed to be revived because he was hurt so badly. We also heard that the crowd spilled out of the dance club and that innocent people were getting punched in the face as they were walking by. The next morning in Costa Maya there were a bunch of people sitting by the side of the ship with all of their luggage as they were kicked off the ship and their relatives were shipped off to Mexican jails. Carnival needs to learn a lesson here and not serve alcohol after a certain time and perhaps shut down the 18+ dance club before 3:00 a.m. Nothing good can come of drunk teenagers at 3:00 in the morning.

Seems there's a lot of "We heard" in that story.

I agree Cruise Fanatic - from my experience of
"we heard" stories about half of the information is accurate.

On my very first cruise on the Holiday several yrs ago, there was a fight between 2 men, it was the result of too much testosterone and beer. (gentlemen this is not directed at you). Security immediately stepped in. almost instantly when the first punch was thrown. I think it could happen on any cruise. I just happened to see this fight.

I read the article and had to post a LOL to the person that was quoted to say that they shouldn't have let the fight happen. Carnival clearly started the brawl

I was was on that ship and sitting just outside the Caliente club when the fight broke out. I can saw the 10 passengers as they were escorted off the ship in Costa Maya the following morning.
