German cruise liner AIDAdiva with German frigate FGS Hessen | Coastweek

 
It’s not every day that passengers on board a civilian cruise liner would get so close to a warship on operations that they could wave to each other, but this is just what happened last week when the German cruise liner, AIDAdiva, with over 2,000 passengers on board, met German frigate FGS Hessen at sea, which was conducting routine Somalia counter-piracy patrols. Piracy attacks have reduced significantly since 2012 thanks to patrols by naval warships and the self-protection measures of merchant ships transiting the area. In fact, no ship has been pirated off the coast of Somalia since May 2012. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
