The video of the brawl shows a chaotic scene, with dozens of passengers pounding and pushing each other, while the ship's security guards try in vain to separate the fight.

The Coast Guard was called to escort the ship
The brawl occurred as the ship approached the port of New York, but it is unclear if it was in New York, New Jersey, or in international waters during the turmoil, making the issue of criminal jurisdiction dull.
No arrests were reported after the brawl, and it is unclear which U.S. security agency will lead the investigation.
Following the battle, cruise line officials notified the Coast Guard of the incident, while the latter sent a boat from Staten Island to escort the ship to dock in Manhattan, according to WNBC-TV.
"The ship arrived as planned this morning and law enforcement authorities on the beach have been notified and boarded the ship to interview suspects and witnesses and conduct an investigation," the carnival company said in a statement.
Police said the passengers gradually got off without incident.
According to the CruiseMapper website, the ship has already left New York for another eight-day cruise in the Caribbean.
