Pirates anyone?

Ok, what is happening with the pirates? Any action in the Red Sea? Indian Ocean? Are any boats doing this route?

Re: Pirates anyone?

The best information for cruisers regarding piracy can be found on noonsite.
Piracy — Noonsite

For now we decided that we will go around the cape instead of taking the risk in 2015.

Well, if there are any Czech pirates, than this could be very true! Vaclav Klaus just gave amnesty to a whole lot of people (and he faces treason charges right now)...
