I went to the "brand X board" as suggested, and could find one of the pictures taken by Spirit Passenger Norm. It showed a fairly small boat with about 8 typical terrorist types in it. One is brandishing a rifle and another has a rocket propelled grenade launcher like the ones used against American and Brit troops in Iraq. Norm's post said only one crew member was slightly wounded by a ricocheting rifle bullet. These "pirates" are probably part and parcel of the Islamic thugs who are responsible for the deaths of literally hundreds of thousands of Somalis in the last year or so, in a Genocide ignored by the U.N. I hate to think what might have happened to the passengers if they had been allowed to board! That part of the world has been off my cruise list for a while, and will remain so.
