MOBILE, Ala.- A disabled cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico is moving again toward the Alabama shore, after a towline broke and delayed the ship's slow journey, that's according to Coast Guard officials.

A new tugboat has been secured, allowing the Carnival Triumph to continue its way to Mobile.

The ship had been expected to arrive tonight.

An engine-room fire Sunday left the ship powerless.

More than 4,000 people are on board the Triumph.
