“But a pirate attack would’ve been fun!!!”

It was supposed to be a magical 104-day world cruise aboard the Sea Princess for the 1,900 passengers who shelled out tens of thousands of dollars.

But for 10 days, those passengers were ordered to undergo ten nighttime blackouts while the ship cruised through the Indian Ocean due to fear of an attack from Somali pirates, according to the Telegraph.

    Reading Brackens’ new book right now. Just getting to the first tangle with pirates. Not a spoiler, the good guys kick ass.

    Mount some quad 50s and add a few Stinger missile systems. Pirates will get the message eventually.

    Historically, pirates are not going to stop being pirates until it becomes too risky to continue. That means that every boat in those waters should be ready for a firefight.
    That cruise ship needs a well-armed security detail. If that would offend the passengers’ delicate sensibilities, then they should stay home.

    I’m looking for investors for a cruise line.
    We get an old freighter, load it with Marines, head to Yemen or Pakistan to load up on AKs, PKMs and a few RPGs, maybe even an ancient Brit muzzle loading cannon.
    You could charge a $mil a pop. to go near the horn of Africa.
    We can can call it Qruise Ships

    It seams irresponsible to operate a cruise ship in pirate infested waters wouldnt they be smarter to avoid the area?

    For what those stupid cruises cost a pirate attack would be the highlight of the entire trip.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
