Several Carnival Cruise passengers reportedly experienced a “meltdown” while standing in line for cheeseburgers. Perhaps this brawl gives a new meaning to “cruisin’ for a bruisin.’”
Ironically, an innocent bystander to the fracas can be seen on the cell phone video wearing a T-shirt with the sensible words “keep calm and cruise on.”
Also visible in the video (embedded below), which was originally uploaded to LiveLeak, is a man who intervenes in the melee to carry a woman involved away from the altercation.
The encounter on the Carnival Breeze cruise ship reportedly occurred outside Guy’s Burger Joint, an eatery co-venture between Carnival Cruise lines and the ubiquitous celebrity chef Guy Fieri, who is best known for his various Food Network television shows.
The on-board restaurant features what is touted as Guy’s signature, made-to-order burger creations.
“The incident happened in front of Carnival’s Guy’s Burger Joint when three female passengers confronted another female passenger and started kicking her,” the Crew Center website claimed.
This shipboard “beef” over the waiting time for Carnival cheeseburgers apparently took place either in late September or early October, but the footage only recently surfaced on social media.
Departing from either Galveston, Texas, or Miami, the 1004-foot, 130,000 gross ton Carnival Breeze traverses the Caribbean for up to nine days at a time with a capacity of 3,690 passengers. The ship also has about 10 restaurants, although apparently tempers flared in this particular instance when only a few of them were serving at the time.
