Russian cruise offers chance to fight Somali pirates
Luxury Yacht Company Offers Pirate-Hunting Cruises
Passengers on a new cruise along the coast of Somalia are paying to catch more than just salmonella.
A Russian luxury yacht company is now offering pirate-hunting trips that promise the chance to be attacked by real sea bandits. The yachts cruise from Djibouti to Mombasa in Kenya at deliberately low speeds in the hopes of attracting pirates.
Passengers pay $5,000 for the trip, and an extra $17.50 a day for an AK-47 and 100 rounds of ammo. The price includes free origami towels in the rooms. Former Special Forces troops are on board to make sure none of the cruise passengers are injured.
And for entertainment, the comedy stylings of Geechy Guy!
