A Pirate's Life in Somalia
Since the daring rescue of Capt. Richard Phillips, who is heading home to reunite with wife Andrea, there are new fears that the pirate adventures in the Gulf of Aden off Somalia may escalate to include cruise ships... but could that happen?
"Extra" talked with travel expert Peter Greenberg who says few cruise ships travel in the pirate area, and that "We're more scary to them than they are to us ... they can't control us ... a cruise ship with 1,500 passengers... guess what? You can't do it." That's a relief, matey!
Capt. Phillips and his crew are due to return to the states late Wednesday.
