Another Cruise ship in trouble






February 11, 2013 -- Nearly 500 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas, fire in the engine room of a Carnival cruise ship knocked out power, leaving more than 4,200 people stranded.

The Carnival Triumph is little more than a 100,000-ton cork, bobbing in the Gulf of Mexico for the past 24 hours Its engines are reportedly so badly damaged, a tugboat will have to tow it to Mexico starting at noon Monday.

....

The company's announcement on Wednesday came as the Triumph was being towed to a port in Mobile, Ala., with more than 4,000 people on board, some of whom have complained to relatives that conditions on the ship are dismal and that they have limited access to food and bathrooms.

.....

Debbi Smedley, a passenger on a recent Triumph cruise, said the ship had trouble on Jan. 28 as it was preparing to leave Galveston. Hours before the scheduled departure time, she received an email from Carnival stating the vessel would leave late because of a propulsion problem. Passengers were asked to arrive at the port at 2 p.m., two hours later than originally scheduled. The ship did not sail until after 8 p.m., she said
