VICTORIA, Seychelles - A disabled cruise ship has docked in a Seychelles port after three days at sea without power.

Passengers lined the railings and a few began to clap as the Costa Allegra drew close to the crowded dock Thursday morning.

The Seychelles Red Cross has set up several tents to assist any passengers needing help and representatives from the American and European governments were waiting to assist.

The ship has been at sea with more than 1,000 people onboard and without electricity or running water since a fire broke out in the generator room on Monday.

A French fishing vessel towed the cruise ship to safety.
