Costa Crociera cruise line has come under fire again after its passenger vessel, the Costa Allegra, caught fire and lost power 200 miles off the coast of the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.

The drama at sea came just six weeks after the Allegra's sister ship, the Costa Concordia, ran aground off the Italian coast with the loss of 25 lives.

In what could be called the Curse of Costa, IBTimes UK highlights some of the problems the company has faced over the last few years:

The Costa Allegra
The fire is said to have erupted in the ship’s engine room and is now stranded without power 200 miles south-west of the Seychelles.

The fire is said to have broken out in Allegra's engine room, stranding the ship without power 200 miles southwest of the Seychelles.

The Costa Concordia
The Costa Concordia ran aground on a reef on January 13 2012 after Captain Francesco Schettino deviated from the ship’s pre-planned route to give Giglio Island a near-shore salute.

Twenty-five people died and seven are still missing.

Schettino has been arrested on charges of multiple manslaughter, causing a shipwreck, failing to assist passengers and failing to be the last to leave the stricken vessel.

Costa Cruises at first offered to pay for his legal costs but have since withdrawn that offer.

The Costa Europa
On February 26 2010, the ship collided with a dock at Sharm al-Sheikh in Egypt while attempting to dock in poor conditions.
