Just a month removed from the Costa Concordia disaster off the coast of Italy, another Costa Cruise lines ship has suffered a major disaster in an exotic location.
The fire was in the generator room of the ship. No one was hurt, but it occurred while the ship was 200 miles away from land in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
The Costa Allegra fire was contained quickly according to a company spokesman. The ship returned to port in the Seychelles Islands and all passengers departed safely.
