APNewsBreak: Fight over towing of disabled cruise
APNewsBreak: Cruise ship to spend 10 to 12 extra hours at sea after French boat waves off tugs
By The Associated Press

VICTORIA, Seychelles (AP) ' A Seychelles government minister says passengers aboard a disabled cruise ship will spend 10 to 12 hours longer at sea than was needed because a French vessel pulling the ship refused to give way to tugboats from the Seychelles.

Joel Morgan told The Associated Press that the cruise ship Costa Allegra likely would have arrived in port Wednesday night local time if the tugs had been allowed to take over.

The cruise ship instead is not set to arrive until midmorning Thursday. Morgan, the transport minister, said the Seychelles is not happy that the financial objectives of the French vessel was put ahead of the well-being and safety of the passengers.
