A cruise ship sailing off Somalia has beaten back gunmen in speedboats who opened fire on it in an apparent pirate attack which terrified passengers.
At least two boats closed in on the Seabourn Spirit, reportedly firing automatic weapons and a rocket-propelled grenade.
But crew took evasive action, repelling the attackers without returning fire.
One crew member was lightly injured in the early-morning incident in waters notorious for pirate attacks.

These guys are going to take down a Cruise ship with a row boat and some AK’s?
They actually were doing that, they also had some speakers make a big 'boom' sound, to sound like they were returning fire.
I’m surprised the cruise ships didn't just run them over.
do Cruise ships carry any security officers, or some kind of law enforcement on them?
