The Costa Allegra is adrift in the Indian Ocean, with no power, save, apparently, emergency lighting. There are approximately 1,000 passengers and crew on board, none of whom were injured during the electrical fire that resulted in the power outage.
Now, in case you haven't been following the pirate stories, the Indian Ocean is an area in which pirates do, indeed, operate. Thankfully, there IS protection on board, in the person of armed Italian Marines, according to a story in The Guardian. Still, I'm saying a prayer for the safety of all aboard the Allegra.
