This morning the cruise ship Carnival Triumph experienced
an engine room fire while the vessel was sailing approximately 150 miles off
the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The ship's automatic fire
extinguishing systems activated and the fire was contained to the aft engine
room. At this time, the fire is fully extinguished. There were no
casualties or injuries to guests or crew. All appropriate authorities
including U.S. Coast Guard have been notified.
The vessel is currently without propulsion and the ship
is operating on emergency generator power. The ship's technical crew has
determined the vessel will need to be towed to port. A tugboat is en route to
the ship's location and will tow the vessel to Progreso, Mexico, which is the
closest port to the ship's current location. This will enable us to
disembark guests and get them home as quickly as possible. The ship is expected
to arrive in Progreso Wednesday afternoon and guests will be flown from there
back to the U.S.
There are 3,143 guests and 1,086 crew on
board. Guests are being provided with food and refreshments.
