Carnival Triumph finally arrives in Alabama

Posted: Updated:

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A Carnival official says the disabled ship Triumph is now 5 miles from the cruise terminal.

Terry Thornton says the ship is now expected to arrive between 9:30 and 10:30 p.m. Central time Thursday.
 
He said warm food, blankets, cellphones await passengers.
 
He said the ship would be taken Friday to a nearby repair facility to be assessed.
 
Four days ago, the 893-foot ship was crippled by an engine-room fire in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.

More than 4,000 people are on board.
