Passengers look out of the Costa Allegra cruise ship as it arrives at Mahe port in Seychelles Island March 1, 2012. The crippled Costa cruise line with more than 1,000 people on board arrived at the capital of Seychelles on Thursday after three days at sea without power. A French tuna fishing boat towed the stricken Costa Allegra towards the port in Victoria, where a line of ambulances, a Red Cross medical team and a fleet of small buses awaited the arrival of the liner.
