Engine fire stalls Carnival cruise ship
GULF OF MEXICO - An engine fire has stalled the return trip of the Carnival Triumph cruise ship that left Galveston, Texas Thursday.
The cruise ship is 150 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The ship's fire extinguishing systems activated and the fire was contained to the aft engine room and was extinguished.
Carnival reports no injuries to guests or crew. Crews are working to restore power to the ship, and a tugboat is in route just in case it's needed.
All 3,143 guests on the current voyage will receive a full refund inclusive of gratuities and any transportation expenses, according to Carnival.
Concerned family and loved ones of guests and crew may call 888-290-5095 or 305-406-5534.
