Dramatic footage shows security on board frantically trying to break up the fight after what started as a two-person scuffle escalated into a brawl.

Staff were forced to call out the Coast Guard as the ship, Carnival Magic, made its way towards a dock in New York City.

The fight started out between just two people before dozens more joined in, according to reports.

One of the passengers, Theresa James, told Fox News said it all kicked off at around 2am, where the ship’s nightclub and casino are located.
