A second Costa Cruises ship has run into difficulty in as many months with more than 1,000 people on board and drifting without power in the Indian Ocean following a fire.
The Costa Allegra is adrift more than 200 miles southwest of the Seychelles, near Alphonse Island, the BBC reports.
The ship is from the same fleet as the Costa Concordia, which ran aground off the Italian coast in January, killing 32 people.
The investigation into the Costa Concordia accident is still ongoing.
Costa Cruises said in a statement that the fire broke out in the electric generators’ room. It did not spread and there were no injuries or casualties.
Inspections of the state of the engine room are on-going, the company says.
Tugs and “other naval and aerial units” will reach the ship, which has sent out a distress signal, Costa Cruises says.
There are 636 passengers and 413 crew on board the Costa Allegra, which left Madagascar on Saturday.
It was due to arrive in the Seychelles on Tuesday.
