Paul, let's keep our fingers crossed, our Epic engines run like clockwork!
Seychelles lie off the East coast of Africa (Tanzania) and yes the Somali pirates are operating in the area.
I understand that the Allegra has armed guards on board.
Now that mind sound sensationalist but on a land tour of Jordan, we had a permanent armed guard (Army) assigned to our small group - you get used to it.
