Please let this be a joke.
Tickets aboard the ocean liners, which will cruise at about five miles per hour in an attempt to attract pirates, will cost about US$5,000, with AK-47′s and ammunition available for rent each day. The ships will be protected from pirates by private security guards made up of ex-special forces troops.
Not everyone is unfazed by this ridiculous, horrible idea. Russian yachtsman Vladimir Mironov says, “They are worse than the pirates. At least the pirates have the decency to take hostages; these people are just paying to commit murder.”
