The reason for a mass brawl aboard ship

‘Mass brawl’ breaks out on P&O cruise ship Britannia


He said one witness “explained to staff that things kicked off when another passenger appeared dressed as a clown. This upset one of their party because they’d specifically booked a cruise with no fancy dress. It led to a violent confrontation.”

  1. thuggish and violent scumbags from Chigwell kick off. A shame that they couldn’t have been dumped at sea.

  2. Shipboard fights are nothing new.

    The main thing needed is to ensure that the good guys win said fights and the Chigwell Two received a beating that they will carry the marks of for several years at least (if not to their graves) and the bad memories of even longer.

    One drunk wog sees another drunk wog dressed in a clown suit and assumes he was in the middle of a parliamentary debate on Brexit.

    Film at eleven.

  4. Funny how clowns kick things off like this. And can you really specify “no fancy dress” as a condition of your cruise, and mean the whole ship bans fancy dress for everyone on all decks at all times? Something amiss in this report, methinks.

    Yes, can’t help thinking we are missing some significant facts here.

    Its a BBC report, that goes without saying.

  6. Where’s a U-boat when you need one?

    One can (almost) understand two people fighting over this – it is absurd, but there you go, but a mass brawl?

  7. “… but a mass brawl?”
    Hello? I mean hello?
    This is Chigwell we’re talking about.
    It makes me proud of my heritage.

  8. An afternoon of “patriotic” partying.

    bbc punctuation, not mine. I think they may be implying something.

  9. @Clovis…

    Absolutely… Half-a-dozen relatively minor injuries and a couple of arrests wouldn’t even merit a mention in the local rag! 🙂

  10. My father’s summary of going on his first cruise recently, ”too regimented, too American and I didn’t like the food. I must be the only person to go on a cruise and lose weight.”

    At 83 I think he’s ticked it off his bucket list and won’t be repeating the experience!

    Excellent link, thanks!

    There’s clearly a safety issue in how the cruise companies make a substantial chunk of their money from getting their travellers intoxicated, in terms of people falling overboard as well. If they combine it with a harder partying demographic then some of the consequences are inevitable…
