Cruise Ship Adrift in Pirate Infested Indian Ocean

Another bad day for Carnival Cruise lines.

http://news.yahoo.com/cruise-ship-ad...-abc-news.html

One quote that caught my eye:

Quote:
said the Italian coast guard used satellite systems to spot nearby vessels that have agreed to assist in the emergency. A French fishing boat should reach the Allegra tonight. Another fishing boat should arrive by 5 a.m., and three merchant ships are also on the way
Nothing like ringing the dinner bell for the pirates...hope the Seychelles Navy can get to them first

You may be right, this isn't exactly like sending in the 7th Fleet, but something is better than nothing

Not too bad for that small country ! And should be sufficient to keep the cruiseship safe
