Stricken cruise ship repaired, heading to Malaysia
Question of the Day
The coast guard recalled one of its rescue vessels and a patrol craft, but another was still heading to the ship along with a navy boat, Ricafrente said, “because we want to ensure the safety of the passengers.” He said the vessels were expected to reach the ship around 8 p.m. (2000 GMT).
There were no information about the nationalities of the passengers and crew, but British media said they included Britons and Americans.
Ricafrente said that no distress call was received and there would be an investigation.
The cruise company’s statement said the ship was running on emergency power in “calm seas” around Indonesia’s portion of Borneo island.
Engineers have restored power to one of the ship’s engines to re-establish air conditioning, running water, plumbing, refrigeration and food preparation, the company said.
The company said the rest of the ship’s voyage would be canceled.
A month after 32 people died when the Costa Concordia ran aground and capsized off the western coast of Italy, a fire on the Costra Allegra left that ship without power and adrift in waters known to be prowled by pirates in the Indian Ocean for three days.
