News: Pirates seize cruise ship

April 4, 2008 at 12:35 pm Leave a comment

CNN just released some information about pirates seizing a French cruise ship off the coast of Somalia.  An interesting tidbit: “Pirates seized more than two dozen ships off the Somali coast last year.”  Yeah, this is why my dad worries about my mom and I taking a cruise in Greece.

 P.S. At least some cruise ships have defense systems.  See, e.g., Cruise ship attacked by pirates used sonic weapon.
