Carnival Triumph – Again

CARNIVAL TRIUMPH should perhaps be renamed considering her trail of woes. Previously, on February 10, as CARNIVAL TRIUMPH was sailing about 150 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula, an engine room fire took out her electrical power. CARNIVAL TRIUMPH was first adrift and then under tow for days before being towed to Mobile, Alabama, with 3,800 passengers and crew on board. During that time, the emergency power generator proved inadequate to the needs of all those people, resulting in significant hygiene and general health issues.

Now, on April 3, CARNIVAL TRIUMPH broke loose of her moorings at the BAE Shipyard in Mobile, AL, where she has continued to lay for repairs, and drifted into a cargo ship. One of the starboard stern decks, well above the waterline, sustained a 20-foot gash. None of the crew or repair workers on board were reported injured in this latest incident, and she is back at under control.
