Carnival cruise ship arrival in Mobile delayed - Again

Posted: Updated:

MOBILE, Ala. (KNOE 8 News & AP) - The "Triumph", that Carnival cruise ship in the Gulf, has once again been delayed as it is towed back to Mobile, Alabama.

A Carnival official says a snapped towline has delayed the disabled Triumph's expected arrival in Mobile.

Right now, the predicted arrival time could be as late as 4am Friday morning. Earlier Thursday afternoon, the projected arrival had been as early as 3:30pm.

Passengers onboard reported overflowing toilets, sewage backed up in showers and people getting sick.

Thornton also said that passengers would carry their own luggage once they arrive in Alabama and that only one elevator is functioning on the Triumph.

An engine-room fire Sunday left the ship powerless. More than 4,000 people are on board the Triumph, and passengers face long bus rides or other travel hassles to get home once they arrive in Alabama.
