Early Tuesday morning, a massive brawl broke out on the dance floor of a Carnival cruise ship that potentially involved up to 60 people.

According to reports, the brawl started over allegations of cheating, after an alleged threesome upset the participants’ respective partners. Video footage of the skirmish showed a chaotic scene as nearly 60 passengers on board the cruise began punching and shoving one another.

The initial argument was between two passengers on the dance floor but quickly spiraled out of control as more and more people joined the fight. The altercation took place on the final night of the ship’s eight-day Caribbean cruise with stops in Dominicana, Turks, and Caicos, and the Bahamas.

It is unclear if anyone was arrested when the ship docked in New York.

More details of this incident were reported by Fox News:

An all-out brawl that broke out between dozens of passengers aboard the Carnival Magic cruise ship was sparked over allegations of cheating while on the trip, according to an eyewitness passenger who shared video of the fight with Fox News Digital.

Theresa James, who said she is a travel agent, told Fox News Digital that the fight started just before 2 a.m. on the ship’s fifth floor, where a dance club and casino are located.

An alleged threesome between passengers had upset their significant others when they learned of the rendezvous, according to James, who said she witnessed the fight from her door.

Beer bottles were smashed, and a woman may have been cut during the chaos, James said.

The brawl lasted about an hour, according to the travel agent, and took the parties involved from the fifth floor to the ship’s first floor, which James described as a huge distance. She said the altercation wasn’t physical the whole time, and an estimated 60 people may have been involved.

It’s unclear if anyone was arrested or if New York or New Jersey authorities would handle it or another jurisdiction since it may have happened over international waters.

Cruise officials notified the Coast Guard, which sent a boat from Staten Island to escort the vessel to dock in Manhattan. Police and paramedics were waiting to greet the ship at Pier 88, where it docked without incident.

The incident was initially described by the NYPD as an “emergency docking.”

Here’s the cruise line statement on the incident:

“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 shoreside law enforcement authorities were notified and met the ship to interview suspects and witnesses and conduct an investigation.”
