As luxury cruises and yacht excursions for tourists increase between the islands of the Maldives and the Seychelles, the waterway has drawn the attention of pirates.

Passengers were able to block the pirates from taking the ship by throwing deck chairs at them as they tried to board, while the Melody’s crew fired back at pirates with pistols.
