MOBILE, AL (WAFB) -
At last check, the cruise
ship Triumph will dock in Mobile, Alabama between midnight and 3 a.m. It will
then take another four or five hours before everyone is able to get off the
ship once it is docked.
Thursday marked the first
day most families could at least see video of the Carnival cruise ship finally
inching toward land. Passengers on board, interviewed by phone, talk of a
vacation from hell.
A fire in the engine room
on Sunday left the ship without power. Tow boats are pushing the huge ship
toward land. Besides very little hot food, the biggest complaint on board is
the bathroom situation.
Carnival says it has most
public bathrooms back up and running, but there are horror stories from
passengers about broken bathrooms inside their rooms and raw sewage coming from
"Well, I mean it runs down
the walls from one floor to the next. It
was running out from somebody's bathroom out into the hallway all the way
across, and because we're sleeping in the hallway, my friend Carmel had to
actually change his mattress out for another because it was laying in the raw
sewage," said passenger Larry Porer.
Carnival says another
emergency generator was dropped to the ship overnight and claims the situation
on board is not as dire as passengers are describing.
Carnival says "This
generator was helpful mostly last night in providing some extra power and
allowing us to provide extra hot food service. So the guests had a better
improved meal service last night."
Families of the passengers
are waiting in Mobile, Alabama.
Kim McKerreghan's daughter
is on the cruise with her father. "She was balling her eyes out. She was crying
and wanted to come home. She wanted her mommy to come and get her," said
The cruise line insists that employees are doing everything
to ensure that people are comfortable.
