The Carnival Legend faced an unexpected problem after over 30 people were injured in what the cruise line is calling "violent and disruptive behavior."

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that some guests locked themselves in their rooms aboard the Carnival Legend to avoid the violence, several outlets reported.

“Fights have been going on for a few days now,” said Kellie Petersen, who was on board with her husband and three children. “We’re scared. We’ve been told to watch our backs by this group so we’re scared to go anywhere alone in the ship.”

Apparently there were multiple fights, with the perpetrators threatening to stab people and throw them overboard.

“They were punching women, 16-year-old kids, everything,” passenger Michael Haddara recounted “They called up the mechanical people from down the bottom, the big boys, to intimidate and basically do what they want.”

Victims reported that in addition to the violent passengers, crew members were threatening passengers with broken bottles and wresting phones from them to delete images containing proof of the violence.

Carnival is reportedly offering a 25% credit to passengers affected by the violence: a reward which most people say is ''unacceptable.''

Reportedly all passengers removed were members of the same extended family.

The incident has us saying, "why?"

Carnival is reportedly probing the reactions of its security staff to determine if they will face disciplinary action.

This story is severely disturbing, and hopefully we shall never hear anything like it again.
