HOUSTON - A cruise line says it is making passengers stranded aboard a disable ship as comfortable as possible, contradicting accounts of some passengers.

Carnival Cruise Lines President Gerry Cahill says his company is working to keep the thousands of passengers safe and comfortable as the vessel is guided to port in Alabama.

Meanwhile, some passengers have complained to relatives about hot, dirty conditions aboard the Carnival Triumph, including tales of overflowing toilets and limited food.

Forecasters predict a front to bring increasing winds, a little more roll to the seas and isolated showers to the path of the ship. However, the Coast Guard and cruise line say they don't expect passengers to see a noticeable change in shipboard conditions.

Carnival says the ship is expected to arrive in Mobile on Thursday.
