Passengers Describe Conditions On Disabled Cruise Ship

VICTORIA, Seychelles (AP) - Passengers disembarking from a disabled cruise ship that docked in the island nation of the Seychelles after three days at sea without power described hot and trying conditions.

American Gordon Bradwell said he and his wife ate cold sandwiches for three days and moved their bedding onto the deck to escape the stifling heat indoors after a fire left the Costa Allegra without power on Monday and also without air conditioning.

Eleanor Bradwell said that the initial response to the alarm seemed to be disorganized but overall she and her husband felt the shipping line had handled the emergency well.

Dozens of officials flocked to the port Thursday to help passengers ashore, some of whom applauded as the ship approached land.
