Disabled cruise ship arrives in Mobile Bay
MOBILE, Ala. - The disabled Carnival cruise liner Triumph finally limped into Mobile Bay this afternoon, but is still hours away from it's final destination.
The ship is 30 miles from the terminal, and has to navigate the tricky turns and cross currents in Mobile Bay without power.
Triumph's journey was halted this weekend after a fire in its engine room. The ship's return was delayed again Thursday afternoon when a broken towline left it dead in the water.
There's no new estimate when the liner, with its 4,000 passengers, will eventually dock. Passengers have been desperate to escape conditions that they say include food shortages, overflowing toilets and dark corridors. They also face long bus rides or other travel hassles to get home once they arrive in Alabama.
