I shall be cruising aboard Costa Allegra this time next year, the route is via both piracy 'hotspots'...Straits of Malacca and Gulf of Aden. It does not and will not worry me about sailing through those areas. Costa will have covered their bases incase of any problems and I am completely confident that they will act in a professional way should the 'worst case scenario' happen.

As far as I am concerned, the moment anyone changes their plans to avoid situations such as these, then you are playing into the pirates fear and letting them win. I, for one, will not allow them to scare me off the area, they do not scare me nor do threats from them scare me and that will never change.
