There are certain areas of the world that this is quite common and off the coast of Africa happens to be one of them. I quess they were really over-expecting but pirates are not known for intelligence, just ruthlessness. SE Asia is another hot spot for pirates. I really hope that this snaps the cruiselines into placing automatic weapons onboard ships and the personel train to use them
