It’s no one’s idea of a perfect vacation, but officials in the Seychelles, where the crippled Costa Allegra is being towed, say they’re trying to get everything ready before the ship docks with its 1,000 passengers Thursday. “I can assure you that we are doing our best to ensure that they have a nice few hours in the Seychelles,” said an official on the islands. The ship, which is part of the fleet that includes the capsized Costa Concordia, was stranded in the Indian Ocean Monday after losing power. Three planes are lined up to fly passengers directly back to Rome, with the first flight scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
