    Passenger dressed as a clown sparks huge brawl on British cruise ship

    I tried to find video of the brawl, but so far have been unsuccessful.

    A mass brawl broke out on a British cruise ship Friday morning, leaving several people injured and others confined to their cabins for the rest of their journey, according to eyewitnesses who spoke to CNN affiliate ITV news.

    The P&O cruise ship Britannia was on the final leg of a cruise to Norway's fjords from Southampton, in southeast England, when the fracas broke out, ITV reported.

    ITV's "Good Morning Britain" correspondent Richard Gaisford was on board the ship when the fight broke out. In a series of messages on Twitter, he said that heavy amounts of alcohol contributed to violence that started on the 16th floor restaurant on Thursday, when a passenger appeared dressed as a clown.
    The passenger's attire apparently upset some of the guests, Gaisford said.

    "One witness, part of a group involved in the trouble, explained to staff that things kicked off when another passenger appeared dressed as a clown," Gaisford said.

    "This upset one of their party because they'd specifically booked a cruise with no fancy dress. It led to a violent confrontation."
    In the United Kingdom, fancy dress means wearing a costume.

    "There was blood everywhere," Gaisford wrote. "Passengers used furniture and plates as weapons. Witnesses told me they were so frightened they had to hide as family groups fought," Gaisford added.

    Police told ITV that three men and three women were assaulted during the fight and that there were a number of injuries including cuts and bruises.

    Those believed to have been involved in the fight were confined to their cabin for the last day of the cruise, ITV reported.

    Six people were hurt as P&O's Britannia sailed to Southampton after a week-long trip to Norway's fjords.

    A 43-year-old man and a woman, 41, both from Chigwell, Essex, were arrested on suspicion of assault.

    Plates and furniture were reportedly used as weapons during the incident in the early hours of Friday.

    Good Morning Britain journalist Richard Gaisford, who was on board, said the violence occurred after a black-tie evening and an afternoon of "patriotic" partying on deck, when large amounts of alcohol were consumed.

    He said on Twitter: "Witnesses told me they were so frightened they had to hide, as family groups fought."

    Mr Gaisford said he had been told by a witness the incident was sparked by a passenger taking offence at another holidaymaker dressed as a clown.

    However, P&O denied there was someone dressed as a clown on the ship.
    Man I hope someone that was on the cruise posts the video. I need to know if the clown was there or not!

    I bet the fight was a lot better and more entertaining than the other shit on the ship.

    Good point. I'd consider going on a cruise if they included clown brawling in the entertainment package.

    Exactly.

    I'd love to see a 6' plus motherfucking Chewbacca dropkick a clown off the Promenade deck. That would be worth it!
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.
