Almost six weeks after the catastrophic Italian cruise liner (Costa Concordia) incident that left more than 30 people dead and about a dozen missing, another ship, the Costa Allegra, run by the same owner, got into trouble Monday night in the pirate-ridden area of the Indian Ocean, the Daily Mail Reported.

The Costa Allegra, carrying more than 1000 passengers, was stranded and drifting in the Indian Ocean Monday night without power after fire broke out onboard due to an electrical fault.

The fire exploded in the generator room but was immediately smothered in time.

The ship was around 260 miles south-west of the Seychelles and about 20 miles from Alphonse Island when the incident happened, Costa cruise officials said in a statement.

No passengers or crew were injured and the ship had not been evacuated, the officials said.

It (the Costa Allegra) is stable and upright and it is being pushed by the current, Costa Crociere spokesman Giorgio Moretti said in a statement Monday from its headquarters in Genoa, Italy.

About 212 Italians, 31 Britons, eight Americans, 413 crew members and nine Italian marines are reported to be onboard the ship.

On Jan 13, an Italian luxury cruise liner of the same group, the Costa Concordia, ran aground off the west coast of Giglio Island and sank in the Mediterranean Sea.

The captain of the ship, Francesco Schettino, who is held responsible for risking the lives of over 4,200 passengers, is facing the charges of manslaughter and abandoning ship while dozens of passengers were still onboard.
