Cruise liner MS Brillance of the Seas is set to face a fine over an all-night party on a stopover in Ibiza.
Town hall officials on the island capital say they received a string of phone calls complaining about noise.
Police and port authorities were alerted but say they were unable to get the music turned down.
Local reports said the noise on the ship, which docked in Marina Botafoch in Ibiza for two days after arriving from Barcelona, continued until around 8.30am yesterday.

Port authorities have now initiated proceedings expected to result in a fine for the cruise ship’s agent, with sources warning last night it would be the ‘maximum possible under the law’ for breaching noise regulations.
MS Brilliance of the Seas belongs to the Royal Caribbean’s Radiance Class.
The 2002-built vessel can hold 2,500 passengers.
It sails Western Caribbean itineraries out of Florida during the winter season before crossing the Atlantic in late April and offering several Mediterranean itineraries out of Barcelona through summer and autumn.
No-one was immediately available for comment at Royal Caribbean this morning, which is understood to operate Brilliance of the Seas through a subsidiary company.
