The Carnival Sunrise Cruise, based out of Miami Florida, was just wrapping up a five-day, round-trip cruise in the Western Caribbean when the real entertainment started. Not on the stage, but poolside. There’s no official accounts of what exactly happened, but according to posts it appears that the Florida Man brawl started with an argument over a chair.

As reported by The Orlando Sentinelone passenger commented on one of the videos and claimed that up to 30 people got involved in the fight. “All I know is, I was filling my cup up with lemonade then, boom, they were knuckin’ and buckin’! Whew, you just had to be there,” another TikTok user commented. One woman was seen repeatedly kicking someone on the bottom of the pile. Pretty weak move there.

Because it was on a cruise ship, we don’t know if there were any injuries or arrests. Even the date of the fight, September 9th, is in question. By one posters account it does look to be about 30 people involved in the fight, one Carnival employee looks to be in the middle of it , trying to deflect some of the blows. There’s no way that’s in his job description. At one point someone blew a whistle (maybe a lifeguard) to try to slow the fight. it didn’t help. Florida Man brawl (or Florida Woman) could not be stopped. We don’t even know for sure that the people in the fight are from Florida. But it’s probably a safe assumption.

  • The Fight

    As one commenter stated “When you offer weeklong cruises for $200 with a daily drink upgrade package for $59/day this is what happens on board.”

  • Another angle

    It’s really upsetting just how normal this behavior is becoming.
