Crippled Ship Being Towed to Land
ROME (AP) - The Costa company says its crippled cruise ship in the Indian Ocean now will be towed for two more days to the main Seychelles island of Mahe.
The cruise ship company said the ship would not be stopping at a tiny resort island in the Seychelles for safety and logistical reasons. The Costa Allegra is now expected to reach Mahe early Thursday.
The cruise ship, which is carrying 1,000 people, lost power Monday after a fire in its generator room. It has no lights or air conditioning.
Two tug boats have joined a French fishing vessel to tow the cruise ship.
