Allegra, an ageing ship operated by Costa Cruises, the Italian cruise line that also owns the wrecked Concordia, was last night drifting without power and light off the Seychelles – in waters known for piracy – after a fire in the engine room. It had 1,000 passengers and crew on board.
The ship was left without power and light. Luckily they were in calm seas and 20 miles from land so there was no immediate danger of going aground.
The vessel now is beeing towed with the help of french fisherman to the Islands of Desroches.
Costa Crociere said the Costa Allegra is not expected to arrive until Wednesday morning “It’s a big ship and to tow it, to move it across the waters, is a heavy task,” said Seychelles presidential spokeswoman Srdjana Janosevic. She said that everything is calm on board the cruise ship and that no one is hurt.
Where that leaves Costa Cruises, a popular line with the Italians, remains to be seen. It has the backing of the giant US-based Carnival Corporation, so it will not collapse, but surely a new name and a new identity is on the cards.
It’s time again for our roundup of new AIS stations – Welcome to new ports and areas with live ship traffic on Fleetmon.com, Fleetmon Explorer and Fleetmon mobile!
The Vessel Datasheet reporting tool got an update today, thanks to your valuable feedback. Putting down relevant vessel data for later reference and sharing your knowledge about ships has never been easier than now, and we fixed some bugs with the Wiki field, so it is now possible again to write freetext information on important facts, incidents or history of the ship.
Shouldn't take that long.
I was told that nobody likes to read long texts on the internet. So, here’s the essential stuff:
FleetMon Photobox 1.2 – a tiny app to browse our community’s gorgeous vessel pictures – just survived the approval process and should be visible in the AppStore really soon.
Beside the usual bug fixes, this version supports the iPad in its native shinyness… enjoy the class ship photography on FleetMon.com on your sofa… it’s “couch spotting” ;-)
As always: Thanks to the contributors! Boys, you have no idea how much we love your awesome work.
[Update] It’s there. Grab it while it’s hot!
