Cruise Ship fends off Pirates

The BBC reports that a Cruise Ship of the Caribbean was attacked by pirates about 100 miles off the coast of Somalia:

“At least two boats closed in on the Seabourn Spirit, firing automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades at the cruise liner. But crew took evasive action, repelling the attackers without returning fire.”

The ship defended itself by making a “loud acoustic bang” that apparently scared away the attackers. Wonder if the crew was trained in making noise, or something was just thrown together. No mention was made of Disney’s upcoming pro-Pirate advertising campaign.
