A mass brawl broke out on a British cruise ship Friday morning, leaving several people injured and others confined to their cabins for the rest of their journey, according to eyewitnesses who spoke to CNN affiliate ITV news.

In the U.K., “fancy dress” means costumes much like you would dress up for on Halloween, and not like black-tie or cocktail attire.

Gaisford said in this Twitter thread that passengers involved in the fight used plates and furniture as weapons. “There was blood everywhere,” a witness told him. In addition, Gaisford said that “large amounts of alcohol” may have contributed to the fight.

According to CNN, police said that three women and three men were injured in the fight. A P&O Cruises spokesman told CNN, “Following an incident onboard Britannia on Thursday evening we can confirm that all guests disembarked yesterday and the matter is now in the hands of the local police.”

However, according to the Independent and USA Today, the police said that the fight was not due to anyone in a clown outfit. It is unclear what the cause could have been, though this version of events was reported by a wide number of reputable outlets. Michele Andjel, public relations vice president for P&O Cruises/Carnival UK, confirmed to USA Today that there was no clown.
