DISABLED CRUISE SHIP (FINALLY!) DOCKS IN ALABAMA
The disabled Carnival cruise ship that was stuck in the Gulf of Mexico for five days finally docked in Mobile, Alabama late last night (Thursday).
The ship pulled up at 9:15 p.m. Central and it took 4-5 hours for the over 4,000 passengers and crew to get off since there was only one functioning elevator on the Triumph.
A fire in the engine room on Sunday cut power to the ship, leaving it adrift in the Gulf. A towing ship finally reached it Monday and it took days to pull it back to shore.
Passengers said that cabin carpets are soaked in urine leaving many forced to sleep in tents on deck. They were low on food so passengers were forced to eat nothing but cold sandwiches.
Once they were on land the passengers had the option of a seven-hour bus ride to Galveston, Texas where the cruise originated or a two-hour trip to New Orleans… some also can stay in Mobile.

Passengers who were aboard Carnival Triumph will receive a full refund plus can get 15% or 25% off if they want to take another cruise.
Carnival says the passengers will get a full refund for the cost of the cruise as well as transportation costs, pre-paid shore excursions, gratuities, and government fees and taxes.
But the company is also offering the passengers 25% discounts on future three to five day Carnival cruises or a 15% discount on a six or seven day cruise.
