Carnival Cruise Ship Remains Stranded in Gulf

More than 3 thousand cruise ship passengers are still waiting to get home. Since a fire broke out in an engine room on the Carnival Triumph Sunday, the ship has been drifting in the Gulf.  The ship can only offer cold food, no hot water, sweltering indoor temperatures, and few working toilets. There are more than 3100 passengers onboard and a crew of more than a thousand. Carnival Cruise Lines says an engine room fire  disabled the cruise ship Triumph about 150 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula.

A statement on Carnival’s website says nobody was hurt and automatic extinguishers put out the fire before it could spread from the aft engine room. Triumph cruises from Galveston to the Caribbean. A tugboat will now tow the ship to Alabama where passengers will be flown back to the United States. It’s expected to arrive in Mobile on Thursday. Carnival says passengers will get a full refund, plus an equal credit for a future cruise. The company says people scheduled on February 11th and February 16th cruises will get a full refund and a discount on a future cruise.
