Passengers aboard the Sea Princess cruise ship traveling through the Indian Ocean were forced to go through 10-day blackout to prepare for a “Somali pirate attack.”

The 104-day world cruise aboard the luxury ship attracted 1,900 passengers who shelled out tens of thousands of dollars to go along for the journey.

But for 10 of those 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.

Carolyne Jasinski, a passenger on the cruise’s first leg, wrote that the captain of the ship informed those on the cruise that there was a “real” threat of a pirate attack. “No deck parties, no movies under the stars, no late-night outdoor bar hopping or pool dipping,” Jasinski wrote, listing everything that was shut off because of the threat. “No lights, no party atmosphere, no lapping up tropical breezes on their balconies. All around the ship, as the sun set, all curtains were drawn and all shutters closed. Bright lights, which normally signal the presence of the Sea Princess on the ocean, were dimmed or turned off altogether.” source

“She was a ghost ship.”

The blackout happened while the vessel crossed through the Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Suez Canal.

During a drill, passengers were told “to sit on the floor and to hang onto hand rails in case the ship had to maneuver away from pirate ships,” one passenger wrote.
