An Italian cruise ship with more than 1,000 people on board is without power in the Indian Ocean following a fire. No one has been injured.
The cruise operator has stressed that the ship is steady and conditions are safe.
The liner sent out a distress signal, Costa Cruises said, and all passengers and crew not involved in fighting the fire assembled at the muster stations.
Most electric lights on board the ship are off as the batteries are being used to keep essential machinery going.
A spokesman for Costa Cruises said the situation on board was calm and the ship was stable.
